“Make love, not war,” the Israeli actress, 34, wrote, captioning a photo of Larson, 30, with her hands around Gadot’s neck in a mock-chokehold at the awards show. In another pic Gadot posted, she puckers up as she and a smiling Larson pose for a selfie cheek to cheek.
Larson, wearing a pale pink Celine by Hedi Slimane dress, and Gadot, glammed up in a black and pink Givenchy creation, joined fellow action star Sigourney Weaver at this year’s Academy Awards to present the Original Score and Original Song categories.
The Instagram post has already gotten more than 1.9 million likes, as well as raves from commenters like Natalie Portman, who wrote, “LEGENDS.” (Portman is no stranger to Marvel films, having starred in 2011’s Thor and 2013’s Thor: The Dark World. Last year, she revealed she’d be returning to the MCU as Jane Foster in the fourth Thor film, subtitled Love and Thunder.)
Larson reposted the same two photos on her account on Thursday, and her post has gotten more than 1 million likes.
Larson stars as Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, making her debut in 2019’s Captain Marvel and reprising the part in that year’s Avengers: Endgame, which Us Weekly critic Mara Reinstein deemed as “the best installment yet in the 21-course Marvel Cinematic Universe saga.” In January, Variety reported that production was underway on a Captain Marvel sequel after the first movie grossed $1.13 billion worldwide.
Gadot, meanwhile, plays Diana Prince a.k.a. Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe. She made her debut in the role in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before starring in the standalone Wonder Woman in 2017, then reprising the part in that year’s Justice League. Wonder Woman grossed $821 million worldwide, and the sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, is slated for release this June with Patty Jenkins returning as director.Listen on Spotify to Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood as each week the editors of Us break down the hottest entertainment news stories!
