Brie Larson is busy as one of the newest members of Vin Diesel’s extended family in Fast X, but it looks like she isn’t neglecting herself. In her latest social media post, the Marvels star is relaxing in what looks to be a warm sun while wearing a red tank top. And because she’s a generous celebrity, she shared the picture with all her adoring fans.
Brie Larson posted the pictures to her official Instagram account earlier today. In the first shot she’s looking away, with her chin resting on her shoulder. In the second, she’s looking at the camera. The images are captioned with “nothing better than some summer morning sun.” You can see the photos below.
If you know anything current about Brie Larson’s career, then you know she more than deserves a little downtime sunbathing. Before joining the cast of Fast X, Larson ended a long shoot for The Marvels, the long awaited sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel. In spite of the best efforts of misogynist review-bombing trolls, the Marvel prequel made over $1 billion in the box office. She’s since reprised the role of Carol Danvers in Avengers: Endgame and briefly in last year’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. In The Marvels, Larson’s hero will be joined by Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel and Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau; a role she first played in WandaVision. Samuel L. Jackson will once again reprise the role of spymaster Nick Fury. There’s also speculation she could make
But sadly, while The Marvels wrapped earlier this month, we won’t be getting to see the flick for over another year. At one point, The Marvels was going to bow this November. But last October, Disney pushed almost every single post-2021 Marvel movie release date back with the sole exception of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will now come out in November while Brie Larson’s next Marvel flick was pushed back to February 2023. But since then, in April, Disney decided to switch The Marvels‘ release date with Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania; which pushes Ant-Man 3 up to February 2023 while pushing The Marvels back to July 2023.
The official reason given for the switch was that the Ant-Man sequel was further along in production, but we’re a little suspicious. The announcement came only a few days after the news broke that a week before The Marvels‘ new release date, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer and the Margot Robbie led Barbie would release on the same day. Why does that make us suspicious? Well, Captain Marvel made more money than the first two Ant-Man movies combined, so it’s tempting to speculate that the real reason for the switch was that Disney has more faith in the sequel to a Brie Larson led movie that cracked $1 billion than an Ant-Man sequel led by a well-liked comic actor and the increasingly problematic Evangeline Lily.
