Social media trolls might have hit Brie Larson, who plays the titular hero in upcoming Marvel Studios’ film Captain Marvel with the baseless complaint that she doesn’t smile enough in promotional material — but the following image taken today at a Brazilian comic convention might be enough to shut up even the most virulent internet instigators:
“As you may know, Carol is Kamala’s greatest inspiration,” the fan said. “And since you’re mine, can we do a picture like this one?” Larson was happy to oblige and the two recreated the heartwarming scene from Ms. Marvel Vol. 3 #18. Talk about fully embracing one’s role as a superhero.
Captain Marvel, which recently saw its second official trailer air during a recent Monday Night Football game, hits theaters on March 8th, 2019.
