Fast & Furious newcome Brie Larson took to Instagram to offer some encouragement to her followers. The Captain Marvel actress, no stranger to showing off for the camera, posted a video of herself in a black beret giving looks of shock and awe as she admired a colorful light display. She captioned the videos with these words of wisdom: “Reminder to take time and enjoy the little magical moments in life.”

Larson’s fans met her in the comments with thanks, agreement, and lots of love. Brie Larson has amassed quite a fanbase throughout her career. She rocked onto the scene in 2010’s Scott Pilgrim vs the World, then went back to high school for Phil Lorde and Christopher Miller’s 21 Jump Street in 2012.

Brie Larson garnered critical acclaim for her performance in the 2015 film Room, which earned her an Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role. She skyrocketed to A-list status as Captain Marvel in 2019 and has been a mainstay in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever since.

Captain Marvel has changed the MCU, as she is one of the most powerful characters in the canon. But since taking the role, Brie Larson has had perhaps an even greater impact offscreen. The actress has fought for pay equal to that of her male counterparts and has insisted on creative input at Marvel. She has become an icon and role model for many young women, including another Marvel star.

In an interview with Variety, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania actress Kathryn Newton opened up about how she got the job as Cassie Lang in the new film and credited Brie Larson for great advice.

“I met Brie Larson one time and I hope it’s okay I’m saying it, but I looked at her and I’m like, ‘Listen, I’m up for this Marvel role. This is really weird that I’m meeting you,’” Newton explained. “And she’s like, ‘If I can say anything to you, it’s be patient.’ And I did wait awhile — and I just got a random call with an offer.”

And Larson’s work as Captain Marvel isn’t finished yet. Brie Larson will return to the role to headline The Marvels this fall. The film will unite Larson with a team of superpowered women, Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel and Teyonah Parris’s Monica Rambeau.

The trio will team with Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury to face off with Zawe Ashton, who plays an undisclosed villain in the film. Brie Larson is rumored to lead the Avengers when the group reassembles to battle Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror. Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will need all the help they can get to stop Kang’s multiverse takeover in the upcoming Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars.

Brie Larson will also appear in this year’s Fast X, the tenth installment in the off-the-rails Fast & Furious franchise. She will then be seen in the Apple TV+ drama Lessons in Chemistry, which she also executive produces. Based on a book by Bonnie Garmus, the series follows a female scientist in the 1950s who is fired from her lab after she becomes pregnant. She then becomes a television cooking show host aiming to reach into the lives of domesticated women across the country.

Brie Larson is cementing an impressive legacy for herself, taking steps forward for women in Hollywood and amassing credits from some of the world’s top storytellers. She may spend a lot of time on big sets, but Brie Larson has not forgotten how to stop and enjoy the little things.
