While Marvel Comics fans are already eager to see Brie Larson star in the upcoming Captain Marvel film, music fans’ interests were particularly piqued on Wednesday (Sep. 5) when some early stills from the movie were released, revealing that Captain Marvel is a Nine Inch Nails fan.
Entertainment Weekly revealed a handful of exclusive images from the forthcoming flick, which is set in the ’90s. Among some equally exciting looks at Larson in her Captain Marvel uniform, Jude Law as the commander of Starforce and the shapeshifting Skrulls is a very era-appropriate picture of Larson donning a white tee shirt of the classic industrial rock band, along with a leather jacket.
Suffice it to say, Twitter users exploded with excitement when they discovered that Captain Marvel is a Trent Reznor fan, and some are even hoping that this might hint at some NIN music appearing on the soundtrack. Here are some of the best Twitter reactions.

I was concerned the Captain Marvel soundtrack was gonna be like Ace of Base or some shit so that NIN shirt saves me some worry

Captain Marvel in a NIN shirt. If they don’t break out a Nails song in the movie, I’ll be deeply disappointed. Closer would be a brave choice for a Disney movie.

@nineinchnails and @MarvelStudios are two of my favorite things in this world. I hope we hear a NIN song in Captain Marvel maybe it’ll become a signature of her character like AC/DC was for Tony Stark in the first two @Iron_Man films and in the first @Avengers .

no better way to sell the idea that Captain Marvel is set in the nineties than to have her be wearing a NIN t-shirt, well done
