Remember when I talked about how I felt that the marketing for Captain Marvel has as of late become preachy and political motivated in “I Really Don’t Like How They’re Using Captain Marvel To Shove Some Feminist Narrative Down Our Throats“? Well, since then things have only gotten worse. Brie Larson has actively made it clear that she doesn’t want a certain demographic showing up for her movie and quite frankly it’s not helping her promote the movie. Sure, you have the media supporting her in her liberal feminist crusade, but the reality of it is that most people who are fans of Marvel just aren’t feeling her energy right now. And it’s starting to show.
Right now, if you got to the RottenTomatoes page for Captain Marvel and you take a look at the WANT TO SEE section, you’ll see that the percentage of interest for this movie has sharply dropped. It dropped from 96% to a shocking 24%! That’s insane and it’s all because Brie Larson had to slander an entire race and gender. I mean, what did she expect? And it’s funny because I don’t know who to blame her, Brie for saying messed up stuff or Marvel for not telling her to calm down a bit.
Personally, I’m still going to see the movie and judge it for myself, I’m not going to let and actress wilding out prevent me from seeing a movie that could potentially be great. I just wished she’d stop with the hate her own white people and the male gender. That is not how you make true and honest progress, it’s just going sideways instead of forward. Of course the media will label this whole controversy as a major female-led film has been attacked by online trolls and whatnot but I think in this case, people are just genuinely not happy with Brie’s comments on white males and won’t her to stop dividing a fanbase.
What do you guys think of all this?
