Oscar-winner Brie Larson is the current frontrunner for Captain Marvel, and though we’ve seen plenty of “frontrunners” ultimately passed over for major movie roles, this is one case where it’s difficult not to get your hopes up. And it looks like we’re not the only ones who think Larson would make a great Carol Danvers, as Captain America himself has given his official seal of approval.

Brie Larson is reportedly the frontrunner to play Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, the studio’s first solo female superhero movie — which is kind of a big deal for a lot of fans. The Oscar-winning star of Room is a great choice for the part, but back in 2015, she had no idea who Captain Marvel was. That’s probably changed quite a bit since this interview took place, but it’s still pretty delightful to see her reaction nonetheless.

Variety reports that Marvel has its pick to play Captain Marvel in the MCU standalone movie of the same name, and it is Brie Larson, fresh off an Oscar win for Best Actress in Room. Before that she was outstanding in the little indie Short Term 12, playing a woman who works with at-risk youth. She’ll soon be seen as a member of the ensemble in the big-budget Kong reboot Kong: Skull Island. And perhaps after that she’ll become the first Marvel hero to get her own solo film.

By now you’re well-aware of the big twist on last week’s episode of Game of Thrones — thanks to tabloid reports and transparent deflections and flat-out lies from cast and crew alike, Jon Snow’s revival was probably the worst-kept secret in recent TV history. Still, fans had to sit through two of the most painful hours of the series before we finally got to what we all knew was coming. It’s okay, SNL feels your pain.

If you watched last night’s Oscars, surely you saw Lady Gaga’s showstopper performance of “Til It Happens to You,” her Oscar nominated song from The Hunting Ground.

It was a powerful moment, but equally as powerful was a moment you didn’t see: Oscar-winner walking up and hugging every single survivor as they walked off stage during a commercial break.
