Over the last week, The Game Awards’ socials and host Geoff Keighley have been promoting the A-list line-up of celebrities that will be presenting at this year’s show. Two famous faces to join the already impressive roster are actors Brie Larson and Gal Gadot, who play superheroes Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman.
Larson and Gadot will be joining the previously announced Spider-Man star Tom Holland – who will portray Nathan Drake in Ruben Fleischer’s upcoming Uncharted adaptation – and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, who will be performing. The Game Awards will begin streaming on December 10 – starting at 6:30pm ET / 3:30pm PT – where Keighley will be joined (virtually) by EA chief studios officer Laura Miele, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su, and Xbox head Phil Spencer. Voting is still open for the first round of the Player’s Voice category, where the public pick their top ten favorite games from a list of 30.
Brie Larson may be an intergalactic superhero on screen, but in this world, she’s a proud Nintendo fan and an avid gamer. After we found out about her love for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Larson set up her own YouTube channel where one of her first videos showed her indulging in some gameplay. Her island, Dessert, houses the resident hamster Soleil, whom she said was her favorite neighbor whilst talking to Elle. She also plays Fortnite regularly, and was rather excited to see the addition of the Stark Industries map – representing her fellow Marvel Universe comrade Tony Stark.
Gal Gadot, on the other hand, endorsed the mobile game League of Angels – Paradise Land by GTarcade back in 2017. The turn-based RPG offers a rewarding experience in the world of Elysium, where an evil dominion over the Angels can only be thwarted by an ancient relic. Some would say that Gadot’s on-screen superhero persona exists in her everyday life too, as she has two years of military service and training in swordsmanship, kickboxing, capoeira, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu under her cape. Gadot’s latest reign as the Themysciran princess will be in Patty Jenkins’ successor – Wonder Woman 1984 – due to release December 16.
