Marvel Is Sneakily Adding Brie Larson's Captain Marvel to Its Comics Multiverse

By James Whitbrook on at

The first pictures of Brie Larson filming as Captain Marvel made waves, not just because they gave us our first look at the character in live action, but because her famous costume came in some surprising colours. But now the new movie suit has officially made its way to Marvel Comics’ canon.

Marvel has released a preview for next week’s Infinity Countdown: Captain Marvel, a one-shot tie in to the company’s ongoing build up to its big, Infinity-Stone-focused summer event. In the lead up to the event, the stones have made their presence known in the Marvel Universe once again, in the hands of various different Marvel Heroes and villains — and Carol has the Reality Stone, which grants her the unfathomable power of being to communicate with the parallel, co-existing realities of the Marvel Multiverse. Or rather, specifically, with the Captain Marvels of the Multiverse, who also all hold their respective reality’s Reality Stone.

Except, as the preview for Infinity Countdown: Captain Marvel — by Jim McCann, Diego Olortegui, Erick Arciniega, and Clayton Cowles — shows, Carol’s using this vast power for what is basically the equivalent of a Captain-Marvel-Only group chat. A group chat that includes none other than Larson’s cinematic version of Carol Danvers:

So many Marvels, so little time.

If you can’t quite spot her among so many Marvellous heroes, here she is in full, front and centre:

Hi, MCU Carol!

It feels like we’ve been waiting so long for this Captain Marvel movie to finally happen, and what do you know, Brie Larson is already in comics canon before she’s even appeared for a second on screen!
