We all know the new Captain Marvel movie starring Brie Larson is premiering on March 8, 2019, right? And as that date gets closer and closer, it becomes harder and harder to hold in our excitement. Larson herself sent the fandom into overdrive this past Tuesday, September 4, when she posted this cryptic tweet:
Hey @EW I’m bored. Wanna break the Internet tomorrow?— Brie Larson (@Brie Larson)1536110478.0
Almost as if they had this planned all along, Entertainment Weekly quickly responded:
