Major Carol Danvers was flying well before she became the superhero Captain Marvel. Brie Larson, who will play Captain Marvel in the MCU’s first female-led movie, shared a picture of her training for that part of the role on Tuesday.

In Marvel Comics, Captain Marvel was a pilot in the United States Air Force before gaining the power to fly on her own (along with super-strength and energy projection) when she was caught in the explosion of an alien Kree device. Fans haven’t seen any pictures of Larson, who won an Academy Award for Best Actress in 2015’s Room, in Captain Marvel’s superhero costume just yet, but this new picture should be a pretty good idea of what she might look like in the cockpit of a fighter jet.

“Learning how to fly,” Larson wrote.

The flight training — presumably on a simulator — is only part of Larson’s preparation for the role. She’s been reading Captain Marvel comics, obviously, but she’s also been meeting with real members of the U.S. Air Force, as seen in some Instagrams last week.

“Had the opportunity to have lunch with Brie Larson today!!” one member of the Air Force wrote on an Instagram post. “Going to show her around the F15 later for her upcoming movie Captain Marvel.”

Larson’s Captain Marvel isn’t expected to make an appearance in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, even though she has been in Atlanta where Marvel Studios is filming reshoots. She could appear in Avengers 4, which recently wrapped principal photography just as production on Captain Marvel got off the ground. So, barring any unexpected cameos in upcoming Avengers movies, MCU fans aren’t going to see Larson as Captain Marvel in an official capacity for a while. Larson’s Twitter and Instagram photos will have to suffice.

Captain Marvel will hit theaters on March 9, 2019. Jeez, that’s a long time from now.

Thor’s electrifying arrival to Infinity War’s climactic battle in Wakanda might’ve just been the most thrilling moment in a movie full of thrilling moments, but it left some fans puzzled. How did Thor, Groot, and Rocket know where to go? Over the weekend, Infinity War’s directors revealed the answer, tying up a small plot hole that, to be honest, didn’t really need to be tied up.

A prevailing theory about time travel being used in Avengers 4 to defeat Thanos was just deemed a “possibility” by one Marvel director, and yes it totally involves the Quantum Realm.

In an interview published by Huffington Post with Peyton Reed, the Ant-Man and the Wasp director confirmed that the film’s post-credits scene left Scott Lang totally trapped in the Quantum Realm. He doesn’t even have an enlarging Pym Particle disc with him like in the first movie. So with the rest of Team Ant-Man turned to ash by Thanos’ snap, Scott’s only option might be to plunge right into a time vortex.

With Spider-Man firmly planted in the MCU, Sony is doing its best to launch a new Spidey cinematic universe of its own (seemingly without the web-slinging hero). First up is Venom, which is getting a lot of buzz thanks to its depiction of Tom Hardy as a dark anti-hero who calls his enemies “turds” and runs amok in a version of New York with no Spider-Man in sight.

It’s not fair to blame the mustache Henry Cavill had for Mission: Impossible — Fallout for ruining Justice League, mostly because Superman’s weird CGI lip honestly didn’t even crack the top ten of that movie’s problems. But, it turns out that Fallout’s director Chris McQuarrie tried to help Justice League out.
