Now that the Captain Marvel news is out of the bag, it’s time for Brie Larson to get to work. The Oscar-winning Room actress shared a photo of herself dressed in the superhero’s colors and starting her comic book research.

“Larson Industries R&D Dept,” she tweeted along with the image featuring Captain Marvel, Vol. 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More by Kelly Sue DeConnick and David Lopez.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige made Larson’s casting official — rumors began swirling a couple months ago — with his announcement during San Diego Comic-Con following presentations for Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, Black Panther, and Spider-Man: Homecoming.

When the Captain Marvel film was first announced during a presentation for the fans, Feige said, “Let me clarify. Captain Marvel has gone by many names in the comics, has had many people who’ve inhabited that costume and used that power base. I want to make it very clear: This hero’s name is Carol Danvers.”

Captain Marvel is scheduled for theaters on March 8, 2019.
