When Marvel and DC collided: Brie Larson and Gal Gadot’s epic throwback selfies from the Oscars

Actresses Brie Larson and Gal Gadot, who portray superheroes from different universes, recently shared throwback selfies on Instagram where they promote love over war.

War: While they play characters who inhabit competing superhero universes, Brie Larson and Gal Gadot promoted love not war in throwback selfies

Superhero actresses Brie Larson and Gal Gadot recently shared throwback selfies on social media to promote peace over war, despite playing characters from competing universes. In the first photo, the actresses can be seen in their Oscar attire, with Larson sporting a pink Celine dress and Gadot in a black Givenchy gown. In a playful manner, Larson is seen strangling Gadot, who in turn is grabbing one of Larson’s earrings. However, the second photo shows both actresses smiling for the camera, portraying love rather than war. Unfortunately, it seems that fans of both superhero franchises will never see these two actresses sharing the screen together as their characters belong to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Extended Universe, respectively.

Recently, actors Brie Larson, aged 30, and Gal Gadot, aged 34, posted two selfies on Instagram along with the same caption, ‘Make love, not war’. During the Oscars ceremony held earlier this month, the two celebrities joined Sigourney Weaver on stage, where they introduced Eimear Noone, the first-ever female orchestra composer at the Oscars. While joking about creating a fight club, Gadot, Larson, and Weaver helped Noone lead the orchestra in a medley of the Best Original Score nominees. Larson expressed her profound honor to stand beside her ‘fellow superhero Gal’ and Weaver, the legendary actor who ‘paved the way’ for them, citing her iconic performance as Ellen Ripley in the 1979 sci-fi/horror classic Alien.
