The 8-year-old Captain Marvel, real name Illy, then interviewed Larson and, later, her costar Samuel L. Jackson too. The carpet moment was arranged by The Female Lead, a non-profit organization “dedicated to making women’s stories more visible and offering alternative role models to those ever-present in popular culture.”

When Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8, Larson will be the first woman to lead a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. After 10 years and 20 previous movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel is the first film depiction of the Kree-Skrull War, the long-raging rivalry between two alien races in the middle of which Larson’s titular hero finds herself.
