Marvel Studios’ presents “Captain Marvel,” an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that introduces the MCU’s first stand-alone, female-franchise title character—Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel.

Acknowledged as Marvel’s mightiest Super Hero, Captain Marvel is touted to begin 2019 with a bang and is undoubtedly one of the most awaited films of this year.

Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” follows Carol Danvers’ journey as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes.

Based on the beloved Marvel comic book series, first published in 1967, “Captain Marvel” stars Academy Award winner Brie Larson as Carol Danvers /Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, with Annette Bening, Clark Gregg and Jude Law as Starforce Commander.

Brie Larson who has won an Oscar, followed the epic strength training routine in preparation for the role. She even did actual flight training which is was quite intense and despite falling sick, Brie continued to train!

When asked about the flight training, Brie said, “Oh, I puked a lot. That’s part of how I got my call sign. All of the pilots were like you’re not supposed to tell anybody that, and I was like I got no shame. But we were simulating a dog fight, so I was like flipping around all which way. My pilot was so incredible and super-talented. We got to 6.5 Gs. It was just amazing to feel all of that, especially once we were back on set. When we were simulating a barrel roll, I was able to recall that exactly, what that feels like, what your body feels like, how hard it is to breathe. It’s all of those little nuances that I hope will come through in the movie so that regardless of who you are, if you’re the Air Force or you’re a pilot or whatever, that you recognize that. That it feels real.”

In an interview, Larson revealed that her strength training—which included 100 kg deadlifts and 200 kg hip thrusts—didn’t just transform her physically, but also helped her prepare mentally to become Captain Marvel, the most powerful hero in the Marvel Comics Universe.

“A huge part of Captain Marvel is her strength,” Larson said. “I knew if I could go through that experience, I would get closer to her and I’d understand her.”
