You May Be Surprised Why 'Endgame' Is So Special To Brie Larson

This isn’t a spoiler, but it may make you say “Hmmmm…”  Brie Larson shot ‘Avengers: Endgame’ BEFORE ‘Captain Marvel’!  Presumably because of the complex logistics involved with managing such a massive cast, Larson squeezed in her ‘Endgame’ scenes before diving in for months (and scrubbing off her lip gloss) to bring Carol Danvers to life in her solo movie.

Larson gathered with the rest of the cast of ‘Endgame’, along with Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige, directors Joe and Anthony Russo, and Jon Favreau, who helmed ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Iron Man 2’, and portrays Happy Hogan in various films for the official ‘Endgame’ press conference.  Not that ‘Endgame’ needs any publicity.  It already has the fastest-selling pre-sale tickets ever, with some seats reselling for thousands online!  In an amusing touch, at the press conference, the creators and actors were scattered on stage amid an equal number of empty chairs meant to symbolize the absence of those that were turned to dust at the end of ‘Infinity War’.

While, as expected, nothing significant was revealed about ‘Endgame’– which is probably in keeping with fans’ wishes– each actor was given the spotlight to discuss their character and their place within the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Larson was able to speak directly about how significant ‘Endgame’ is to her:

“This film will always be personally dear to me because it is my first time playing Captain Marvel.  I had to stumble and try to figure out who this character was with no script for this, and no script for Captain Marvel either, and perform for the first time in front of legends.”

As legendary as these performers might be, Larson then added:

“As big as it is, it still feels like a bunch of kids, like I was doing over summer break, making movies in my garage.  There’s wonder and play and encouragement.”

While ‘Endgame’ clearly has a somber mood, due to the massive body count at the end of ‘Infinity War’, fans expect a certain amount of glee in these movies, so hopefully, there will be a happy ending.

We’ll find out when ‘Avengers: Endgame’ hits theaters on April 26.
