According to a Tweet this morning, Larson is filming at Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios—alongside some other actor named Chris Evans:

While we’d hoped Carol might have her debut in the first part of Infinity War and thus a more expanded part in both films, in July director Joe Russo confirmed that she was only in the second movie. Since the conclusion of Infinity War is slated to come out in May 2019 and the standalone Captain Marvel earlier in March 2019, when Carol meets up with the Avengers we’ll have already seen her origin story/solo adventures and she should be able to ease into the action as an established fan favorite (please, please, please let the Captain Marvel movie be good).

It exists far more than we allow ourselves to know. It is filled with shame and secrecy, and by you acknowledging me with this award, it shines a light on it even more.” (via Variety)
  • LGBT student activist Scout Schultz was killed by police at Georgia Tech after a confrontation with a knife. It’s unclear why the police did not employ less lethal tactics, but civilian deaths at the hands of police officers are horrifically common in America.
