Captain Marvel star, Brie Larson, has decided the best thing to keep her occupied in the times of the pandemic is to start a YouTube channel.
So far, Larson has only posted one video. She explains her choice to sign up to YouTube is because the video platform has helped her “[learn] so much.”
“Whether it’s been how to use my printer or it’s been watching how to be a considerate activist, this is the place to talk about things that are important and that matter. It doesn’t mean that there isn’t also silly content, that there’s ways for me to express myself personally, but there will also be deep conversations, anti-racist rhetoric, inclusive content.”
Larson’s debut video is fittingly titled, “So I made a decision…”. As well as explaining her move to YouTube, the twenty minute video features a bunch of appearances and short interview clips with several YouTube personalities.
Among the mix are Justine Ezarik, Michelle Khare, Lilly Singh, Swoozie, and Connor Franta. All seem to be helping Brie get to grips with the world of YouTube.
Although, at the time of writing, Larson has amassed a solid 80,000 subscribers, she still isn’t exactly sure what kind of content she aims to produce.

Some of the YouTube stars offer up their suggestions, including comedy sketches, short films and vlogs where she opens up about her feelings. They also talk about potential collaborations: Ezarik seemed especially keen for an Animal Crossing party.
As well as posting the video, Larson shared links to work from Black artists and creators. The list includes Janet Mock, Mj Rodriguez and the MCU’s own Tessa Thompson.
The caption for Brie Larson’s first video reads:
‘Thank you for watching my first YouTube video! It was so great learning from all of those who joined – make sure to follow them ???? Leave a comment letting me know which creators I should work with as well, please! I’m so excited about this journey – be sure to let me know what you want to see.
