Brie Larson Needed to ‘Temper Expectations’ for Fast X Fight Scenes Due to Captain Marvel Work

From the CGI to the otherworldly aspects of Marvel’s cosmic realm, it isn’t surprising that Brie Larson felt a vast amount of difference when executing her fight scenes for Fast X compared to the MCU as Captain Marvel.

So far, marketing for the movie mainly showcased Tess in that pivotal fight scene alongside Vin Diesel’s Dom against Dante’s goons inside a bar. However, Larson’s remarks may also hint that her Fast X character, Tess, will likely be involved in several fight scenes in the upcoming film.
Hopefully, Larson’s character will survive the events of Fast X, ultimately becoming part of Dom’s team at the end of the movie
