Do you have a bad case of the Mondays? Well, Marvel is here to make you get off of your butt and maybe even go to the gym. They have released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Captain Marvel with more details about the strength training that star Brie Larson did to prepare for this role. We also get a few new pieces of footage from the movie including a new shot of Jude Law as (reportedly) Yon-Rogg.

Larson worked her butt off to get in shape for this production and one of her accomplishments was pushing a car for 60 seconds. That seems pretty super to me.
A training highlight – pushing Jason Walsh's almost 5000lbs Jeep(with a full tank of gas and Alyssa behind the wheel for safety!)for 60 seconds. In Captain Marvel @nike Metcons! It's a strong vibe but I like it. pic.twitter.com/f98n6so8TU

Her smile and little laugh of joy at her accomplishment almost makes me want to put down the spoon of raw cookie dough. Almost. Then again, as this instagram post from January shows, maybe Ms. Larson would be on my side when it comes to cookies.
