brie larson, captain marvel, marvel, mcu, comicsMarvel fans were overjoyed when Oscar winner Brie Larson was officially announced as the new Captain Marvel, a character she'll soon tackle in her own eponymous film. Larson herself seemed pretty excited about the opportunity, too, and took to social media to geek out alongside fans. Now, the actress is proving that she's taking the role -- and preparation for it -- seriously, sharing a new photo that demonstrates her dedication to the part.

Larson posted the pic on her Twitter and Instagram accounts over the weekend, revealing she's set up her own individual research unit for the flick (appropriately dubbed Larson Industries R&D Dept.). And she's already hard at work: The photo features the actress decked out in a set of Captain Marvel pajamas, snuggled up on her couch reading an issue of the "Captain Marvel" comic series. (Specifically, author Kelly Sue Deconnick's "Captain Marvel Volume 1: Higher, Further, Faster, More," which debuted in October 2014.)

This latest social media update proves that Larson's enthusiasm over becoming part of the MCU hasn't waned since she was formally introduced to fans at Comic-Con last month, and that she's eager to share her Marvel journey with fans. We can't wait to see more behind the scenes looks at her preparation for the part in the weeks and months to come.

Larson will make her debut in "Captain Marvel" sometime in 2019.
