Brie Larson Plays SCOTT PILGRIM Song for Holidays
The eponymous Captain Marvel star Brie Larson played guitar and sang her famous Metric cover.
In a video posted on December 24th, 2020, Brie Larson – the actor who plays Captain Marvel, the most powerful superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – posted a YouTube video in which she performed a partial cover of the song “Black Sheep,” which she originally performed as the rockin’ N.V. Adams in the 2010 big screen adaptation of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World was directed by Edgar Wright, and based on the six-volume comic series by Brian Lee O’Malley. The movie adaptation stars Michael Cera as the eponymous character, a twenty-something bass player who must face off against the seven evil exes of the object of his affection, Ramona.
And Larson isn’t the only super heroic actor who appears in the movie as one of the evil exes or something else, either. It’s really an all-star cast of rocking characters; see below.
Ramona: Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Mary Elizabeth Winstead – who appeared in Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn as The Huntress – plays Ramona. (The actress was almost cast as Maria Hill.)
Evil Ex: Chris Evans
Plus, Captain America himself, Chris Evans, appears in the movie. Appearing side-by-side for the first time with Larson in Scott Pilgrim, Evans plays one of Ramona’s evil exes. Appropriately, he’s a big-time action movie star.
Julie: Aubrey Plaza
And as if that weren’t enough for Marvel-heads, Scott Pilgrim also includes an actor with experience as a super villain thanks to the AAAAAAAHHHHH-MAZING performance by Aubrey Plaza, who appeared as Lenny Busker in the FX adaptation of the Marvel Comics series Legion.
(The VEGAN) and N.V. Adams: Brie Larson
In the video Larson posted to YouTube on December 24th, she started off by singing the comments left by fans, which were about their hopes for the impending New Year. Then, after a jump cut that has Larson quickly change seasonal sweaters, she performs the first verse of “Black Sheep,” the cover of the song by Metric that she memorably performed in Scott Pilgrim.
Which song from the Scott Pilgrim soundtrack do you hope to see performed next?
