Laurie Hernandez is serious when it comes to the different looks she shows while competing in gymnastics competitions around the world. Earlier this year, she shed some insight to many of the designs she would be showing off in 2021, including an outfit (photo below) inspired by Brie Larson in Marvel's "Captain Marvel."

"Ok so i told some of y’all that my leos i designed for this year are all inspired by superheroes... here’s the first one! @brielarson queen do u approve??" Hernandez wrote on Instagram back in February.

Her fans, and even the official Marvel Instagram account, all approved.
