When EW sat down with Captain Marvel stars Jackson and Brie Larson for their new cover story, they issued them a challenge: Try your hand at a dramatic reading of each other’s most iconic lines.
THR — The Women in the World Summit is set to return in April with another starry lineup.
Brie Larson will join Oprah Winfrey, Stacey Abrams, Ashley Judd, Jill and Faith Soloway, Cindy McCain, Adwoa Aboah and Wanda Sykes, among others, to appear at the 10th annual live media event, Women in the World announced Thursday. The event is set to run April 10-12 at New York’s Lincoln Center.
Topics that will be discussed in the event’s live conversations include moving the #MeToo movement forward, fighting misinformation, keeping journalism alive, combating threats to the planet, advocating for same-sex love, resisting authoritarian and patriarchal powers and advancing women leaders.
“This year’s Summit is such a milestone event with our 10th anniversary; it is clearer than ever that the mission has met its moment,” Women in the World and Tina Brown Live Media founder and CEO Tina Brown said in a statement. “The seeds we’ve planted as far back as 2010 in a small midtown theater have exploded into a global community of women of power and purpose.”

Brie attended the UK Gala Screening of “Captain Marvel” earlier today! She posed with her co-stars on the blue carpet, and our gallery has been updated with images of her at the event.
Brie attended the 91st Annual Academy Awards last night, where she presented the Best Screenplay Award to “Green Book”, alongside her “Captain Marvel” co-star Samuel L. Jackson. Our gallery has been updated with images of her arriving at the event, as well as during the show, backstage, and at Vanity Fair’s after party.
Brie attended the “Captain Marvel” Junket Press Conference a couple of days ago, which took place in Beverly Hills, California. She was joined by co-stars Jude Law, Lashana Lynch, Samuel L. Jackson, Gemma Chan, and Clark Gregg, as well as studios/producer Kevin Feige and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Our gallery has been updated with images from the event, and you can watch the complete conference below.
Following Captain Marvel’s promoting in Singapore, Brie invited a Singaporean female photographer to document her jaunts to Gardens By The Bay and the Sri Thendayuthapani Temple. According to CNA LifeStyler, her objective was to give relatively unknown female photographers an opportunity to use her platform and build their portfolio.
The Singaporean photographer who took on the job was Rosemarie Yang of Challe Creatives. Larson had found Yang through Instagram and took to her minimalist and whimsical pictures.
