As the Marvel Cinematic Universe's future is continually delayed by the Coronavius pandemic, the franchise's fans are taking this time to reminisce on its monumentally successful past. The 2-year release anniversary of Avengers: Infinity War and the 1-year anniversary of Avengers: Endgame have both come in with a bang, leading to rewatch parties and social media blasts from every corner of the globe. Some of the biggest names with which Marvel Studios has collaborated, actors and directors alike, have been especially active on social media of late sharing both their experiences from previous films as well as some of their plans for the future. Another one of these looks into the past has just been shared, highlighting the first day on set for one of the franchise's most powerful heroes.
In a release on Twitter, Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo shared a four-second video highlighting Brie Larson's first day ever as Captain Marvel. She is shown with two of the MCU's veteran stars, smiling and hugging Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson as Captain America actor Chris Evans looks on. The three actors are on the set of the Guardians of the Galaxy's ship, the Benatar, likely shooting footage from their flight to confront the Mad Titan Thanos.
The MCU, more than any other franchise in movie history, has a reputation for throwing together some of the most high-profile casts ever assembled. This video highlights the joy and excitement flowing from one of the franchise's newest faces at the time when she meets two actors who had each headlined the Avengers saga for nearly a decade at the time. It also reminds fans of the very unique situation the newest Avenger was thrown into as she started her MCU tenure.
Although Brie Larson's first MCU solo movie Captain Marvel was released before her first ensemble film, Marvel Studios made the decision to film Avengers: Endgame directly after shooting Avengers: Infinity War. This meant that Larson would suit up as Carol Danvers as a part of the MCU's larger ensemble before shooting her own solo film, even though Avengers: Endgame released nearly two months after Captain Marvel. Larson was thrown right into the madness of shooting what turned out to be the highest-grossing movie of all time, but she more than held her own portraying one of the most powerful heroes of the entire series to date.
