As mentioned yesterday in the Sebastian Stan post, Avengers: Infinity War is now available on DVD. Which means the 19 people who didn’t see it in theatres can finally catch up on what they missed. One of those people, apparently, hilariously, is Leslie Jones. Somehow Leslie lived her life and all of this summer so far totally avoiding spoilers. So, as she does, she live-tweeted her at-home viewing experience last night. All of it is hilarious so if you haven’t been following along, go back and revisit her timeline. As it was with the rest of us, Leslie had a hard time dealing with the ending:
Sooooo nobody didn’t want to tell me it was gonna end like that WTF?! pic.twitter.com/EGd721h5f4— Leslie Jones 🦋 (@Lesdoggg) August 2, 2018
Same, Leslie. SAME.
Apparently Leslie isn’t a complete amateur though because she knew to keep watching to the end credits. (By the way, there IS an end credits scene in Crazy Rich Asians. Don’t miss it. Some people at the screening I went to on Monday walked out before and they missed a thing.) Leslie had no idea though who Nick Fury was calling. Paging?
NOOOOOOO! Who was he calling?! pic.twitter.com/8eNUWTNtxj— Leslie Jones 🦋 (@Lesdoggg) August 2, 2018
Um who is this captain marvel?! And why have I heard that before? Tell me more please? Where is she now? And where is the justice league? I’m pissed like tell me this marvel lady!!— Leslie Jones 🦋 (@Lesdoggg) August 2, 2018
Here’s what gave all the nerds all the boners though. Someone stepped up to answer her question. It was Captain Marvel herself aka Brie Larson:
New # who dis?— Brie Larson (@brielarson) August 2, 2018
Maybe I’m a nerd too because when I saw this (thanks Kelly!) I squealed. This is a great tweet, non? I love her for it. Until I find out where the f-ck she’s been because if she’s the ultimate saviour, they better come up with a really good reason. How long does it take to teleport? The battle in Wakanda went on for HOURS! She teleports, right? Or is it time travel? Cut to Sarah punching my face/her keyboard.
By the way, there’s another reason I love Brie Larson. She’s been tweeting and retweeting support for Crazy Rich Asians. Brie and Constance Wu were both in Ava DuVernay’s video for Jay-Z’s "Family Feud". Brie refused to clap for Casey Affleck at the Oscars. Constance criticised Casey’s nomination. This is a friendship I will stan for.
