Brie Larson has been cast as Captain Marvel in a movie, and Twitter couldn't be happier.
The actress - who scooped an Oscar for her powerful performance in Room - will take on the role of air force pilot Carol Danvers, who gets special powers after an alien encounter, in a film to be released in 2019.
The movie will be the first in the Marvel cinematic universe to focus on a female character, and fans are all for it.
