Funny story I wanted to take my little cousins to see the new #captainmarvel and we ended up seeing #captainmarvel herself @brielarson serving guests at our local #amc and she was kind enough to take time to speak with these young ladies and made this night one they won't forget. What an amazing experience. Even better following #internationalwomensday that these girls get to meet a #realrolemodel and #hero . Needless to say we love #captainmarvel @captainmarvelofficial @marvel @marvelstudios #CaptainMarvelSoldMePopcornAtAMC #IamTheCoolCousinForLife #marvel #captainmarvel #brielarson #disney #HigherFurtherFaster
