Leslie, Brie, and the DVD

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: 

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? 

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: 

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.
