Brie Larson, star of The Marvels, shows off her pull-up prowess in a new training video. In 2019, the Academy Award-winning actress made her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Carol Danvers; an Air Force fighter pilot, in Captain Marvel. Despite mixed reviews from audiences, the film earned mainly positive reviews from critics and went on to gross over $1 billion at the global box office, making it one of just ten MCU films to do so. As a result, Marvel began work on a sequel right away.
Larson’s superhero made another spectacular debut in Avengers: Endgame, as well as a cameo in a Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, credits scene this summer. Her next solo film will be The Marvels, which will be released on February 17, 2023, according to the official synopsis. Captain Marvel will be accompanied by Ms. Marvel (Ian Vellani), a shape-shifting superhero and a teen named Kamala Khan who idolises Danvers, as the title suggests.
Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), who admired Danvers as a child in the first film, is back after developing WandaVision powers. Park Seo-joon and Zawe Ashton have been cast in parts that have yet to be revealed; but the latter is said to be a villain.
Captain Marvel is now demonstrating her heroic prowess in yet another training video. Larson recently shared a video on social media in which she performs one set of five chin-ups; which is no easy achievement, as she “observes no holidays for training.” In the space below, you can watch a video:

Despite the fact that filming on The Marvels appeared to have ended late last month; practically every Marvel Studios picture undergoes significant reshoots after primary photography; with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness being one recent, albeit extreme, example. As a result, Larson will need to stay in top physical shape for a little longer in order for the final product to look the same.
Given that The Marvels’ release date is still a long way off; director Nia DaCosta and her team will have plenty of time to complete the picture; especially with so many MCU films coming out in the meantime to keep fans entertained.
This training video is just the latest example of how hard actors, particularly Larson; strive to keep in shape for their superhero roles. She’s shared a lot of her exercises on social media, and she’ll probably keep doing so during her time in the MCU. Finally, let’s hope Larson’s hard work pays off in The Marvels.
