A few lucky fans got to see Captain Marvel in the flesh when Brie Larson dropped by a movie theater on opening weekend
Brie Larson made Captain Marvel‘s opening weekend a memorable one for some lucky fans.
The Oscar winner, 29, dropped by a movie theater to surprise moviegoers during a screening of her new Marvel movie. Decked out in a custom Juicy Couture Captain Marvel jumpsuit mirroring her costume on the film, Larson sipped on a cup with her face on her on it as she went in to surprise the audience.
“I just heard that I was on the cups and popcorn and wanted to see for myself,” Larson tells the audience in a video shared by the official Captain Marvel Twitter account. “Thank you so much for coming, you guys are so awesome to come opening weekend.
The star also jumped behind the counter to meet fans and hand out soda and popcorn with the Captain Marvel logo on them.
“The ultimate #CaptainMarvel experience! @BrieLarson helped fans get their popcorn and soda on opening weekend. #HigherFurtherFaster,” the Captain Marvel Twitter account wrote alongside photos of Larson meeting fans and giving them popcorn.
