Brie Larson is a lot of things — Marvel superhero, award-winning actress, and now maybe a WNBA superstar? In her latest Instagram post, you can see her lobbing up a few shots. She, tongue-in-cheek suggests that this is going to be her big tryout for the pros. Think she has the goods or should she just stick to acting?

While these certainly aren’t regulation hoops, you’ve gotta give credit where credit is due. Pretty much all of those shots went in! So maybe a full-on WNBA career isn’t in the cards for Brie Larson anytime soon, but she’d probably be a great first pick in a pickup game. All of the Captain Marvel training probably doesn’t include playing basketball, but you never know. Check out her skills for yourself in her post below:

Fortunately, Brie Larson probably isn’t having to spend quite as much time in the gym lately, since her next Marvel movie is currently in post-production. While there are always reshoots in the cards, she might be able to free up her schedule a little to work on the other projects she has in rotation. That Marvel superhero workout schedule is no joke, so she’s probably happy to be able to let off some steam in a more casual activity like basketball.

Speaking of the Marvel movie that’s in post-production right now, The Marvels will feature the return of Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel and is set to hit theatres in 2023. Though we’ve seen the character pop-up in Avengers: Endgame and even make a cameo in a more recent Marvel movie, this will be her first starring role since 2019’s Captain Marvel. While the first in the franchise was a solo outing, she definitely won’t be alone in this one.

The movie will also see the return of Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, who we saw as a child in Captain Marvel and who Parris first portrayed the adult-version of in WandaVision. Samuel L. Jackson is also back as Nick Fury. And The Marvels will also be our big-screen introduction to Iman Vellani’s Khamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, who will make her small screen start in the MCU at large in 2022’s Disney+ series Ms. Marvel.

When Brie Larson isn’t hitting the inflatable hoops to test her skills, she’s probably staying busy with the other projects she’s juggling. Now that The Marvels is mostly off of her docket, she has an untitled TV series about the CIA and a TV series called Lessons in Chemistry in the works. She’s also executive producing both of those series, so she’s probably got plenty on her plate. Oh, and there is a Netflix series on the way as well. Plus, the inevitable press run for The Marvels will probably start in the near future, so there’s always that to consider.

With all of that going on, it’s pretty unlikely Brie Larson is going to have time to take a real shot at the WNBA, even if she’s nailing those inflatable hoop free throws. Not that she doesn’t have some potential connections to help her get there. She did meet Lebron after all. At the very least, we’d definitely get in line if Brie Larson and Lebron ever wanted to collaborate on a movie, basketball involved or not.
