Brie Larson has shared her first screen test photos from Captain Marvel. The actress has been on a bit of a social media roll over the past few months. Images of her subbing for Jimmy Kimmel and pretending to choke out her DC rival Gal Gadot at the Academy Awards have all gone viral. The Carol Danvers actress has a good time on social media and has no problem sharing that aspect of her life with her devoted fans.
It's unclear when the images of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel were taken, though it looks like the Atlanta set of Infinity War, which would make sense. The photos appear to have been taken on the Vormir set, though that has not been confirmed at this time. The Carol Danvers movie was still well over a year from hitting theaters when these shots were taken. Larson had this to say about that day.googletag.cmd.pushfunction ; 'Photos from my first camera test in full costume. We were still figuring out what her signature moves would be, and I was still learning how to move in a leather wetsuit. Good times.' While these are the first test photos, Brie Larson looks more than comfortable taking on the role of Captain Marvel. Back before the production started, Larson would show off her workout routine on social media, which revealed just how much hard work she had to put into the role physically. Additionally, she also gave fans a look at her Air Force training at the same time. Throughout her time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the actress has given her fans an inside look at what it's like to be wrapped up in that experience.
The test images are great, but MCU fans are dying to know about Captain Marvel 2 and when that production will begin. We all know it's on the way, but the details are being kept under wraps because that's what Marvel Studios does best. For now, fans can only speculate about who will be involved in the sequel and who will end up being the main villain. However, don't expect to see Henry Cavill as Wolverine in the highly anticipated sequel. That particular rumor started to spread last week and has apparently been officially debunked.
Carol Danvers was first teased at the very end of Infinity War when Nick Fury pulled out the old pager to contact her. He turned to dust, but not before sending the message out to Danvers. The pager was later explained in Captain Marvel and was then the key that brought Danvers together with Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Endgame. As for where the character will be going next, that's a big question mark at the moment. Hopefully we'll get some teases in the few months.

The Third Floor, the industry's busiest visualization company in tackling superhero movies “Black Widow,” “Avengers: Endgame”, already had an advantage working remotely with real-time tools and virtual workflows when the coronavirus pandemic struck early this year. Turns out, though, that the COVID-19 epicenter was too close for comfort.
“When this crisis began, we initially faced the challenge of protecting our staff in Beijing, who were in the midst of launching our first permanent office in China,” said CEO and co-founder Chris Edwards. “When the virus started spreading beyond Wuhan, the first thing we did was send everyone home and connect them virtually...we learned a lot about the procedures for mitigating the risk of spreading the virus that we began to apply to our other offices in London, Atlanta, and LA [headquarters].
“Time was of the essence to put a highly secure, remote-working infrastructure in place,” he said, “and we needed to leverage the company infrastructure to bolster communication and function as a support group for all of our employees and their families.”
Back in LA, The Third Floor TTF found the resilience of its Beijing crew instructive. The company, which has become the go-to visualization specialist for the MCU performing rough previs of scenes, more elaborate techvis breakdowns of camera lenses, set construction, and stunts, and postvis enhancements during crunch time, used video conferencing and other methods of digital collaboration to significantly advance preparations and stay on schedule. Despite the physical isolation, however, everyone started relying on the video calls for more than just work-related advice.
“At our [LA] hub, we didn't want to take the risk of being unprepared, so we authorized our IT team to increase our internet band tenfold, and build an advanced remote login system that could enable our artists to work fluidly and securely from home,” said Edwards, who worked with IT chiefs at major studios such as Disney for advising and approving their comprehensive work-from-home solution.
But the two-week transition to a completely virtual studio only became possible with the help of industry colleagues and suppliers when California Governor Gavin Newsom and LA Mayor Eric Garcetti issued the stay-at-home order. And, as part of its mobilization effort, the company launched a TTFaid program as a resource for more than 100 employees and their families with supplies, aid, and emotional support.
“With this early foresight in February, we were prepared to roll out a set of guidelines, which I called the TTF Health Vigilance Plan, across our other studios in LA, Atlanta, and...
Chris Evans wished Robert Downey Jr. a happy birthday with a classic line from Avengers: Endgame. Downey Jr. is more than likely celebrating his 55th birthday indoors and practicing social distancing with a few family members. There will not be a huge party with dozens of people, though he could do so digitally through the use of social media. Regardless, the former Captain America actor is making sure Downey Jr.'s birthday does not go unnoticed.
Robert Downey Jr. started the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the first Iron Man movie in 2008. Chris Evans later followed in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger and the two had instant chemistry together on the big screen when it came time for 2012's The Avengers. Now, Chris Evans is wishing Downey Jr. a very happy birthday. He posted an image of the two in character at Avengers HQ and captioned it with, 'Happy birthday to one of my absolute favorites! Love you 3000,' which is now a classic line from Avengers: Endgame.

'I love you 3000' is what Tony Stark tells his daughter early on in Avengers: Endgame. Stark has seemingly given up on the idea of returning to the superhero world after the events of Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War. So, he starts the movie out as a somewhat content family man out in the country. However, when Earth's Mightiest Heroes try to get the band together, Stark, begins to get pulled back into the world, despite denying it early on. Before we know it, he's looking for ways to work with the Pym Particles to get the time heist plan going.
From there, MCU finally see Steve Rogers and Tony Stark bury the hatchet after years of strife. It was the closure that many felt the characters needed and it was inevitable. In real-life, Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. also needed some closure with the superhero world. Both actor frontloaded fans by teasing that Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame could be the end of the line for their days within the MCU, which wasn't exactly what everybody wanted to hear. After years of training and intense shooting days, Evans and Downey Jr. were ready for a much-needed breather.
So, Avengers: Endgame gave Steve Rogers and Tony Stark proper send offs. Stark went from the billionaire, self-involved brat to the hero who makes the ultimate sacrifice to save the universe from Thanos. Rogers, who has always done what he thought was best for others, finally did what was best for himself as he went back in time to spend his remaining years with Peggy Carter. While Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. may not share scenes on the big screen again together, they, along with the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, remain friends off the screen.
