Brie Larson cannot catch a break on the planet of Marvel — one thing she acknowledged this weekend with a snarky reply … for which the web is as soon as once more criticizing her.
The actress was readily available Saturday on the D23 Expo — the place Disney showcased a ton of recent stuff they acquired popping out. A kind of tasks, “The Marvels,” entails Brie and her character Captain Marvel … solely this time, it will embody different women with Marvel-like powers.
Whereas she was doing press outdoors the principle stage space, she was requested a reasonably simple query — how lengthy do you assume you will proceed to play Capt. Marvel?
Her reply’s telling. She says she frankly does not know, brazenly questioning/questioning whether or not individuals really need her to take up the mantle any greater than she already has. It was just a little tense, and the interviewer tried lightening the temper … to no actual avail.
Now, the backlash … Brie’s catching flak from a very good quantity of parents replying to this video within the feedback — with their major gripe being, why is she making such an enormous passive-aggressive stink over such a layup of a query … particularly with this saga being years outdated.
We’ll spare you the main points of all of it, however primarily … when Brie was solid as Captain Marvel again in 2018 and with its launch in 2019, there was a whole lot of seemingly random hate aimed toward her — for a wide range of causes not even we perceive. Her haters say she’s merely unlikable — her advocates say she’s the sufferer of blatant misogyny by a rabid fan base.
The obvious dislike for her wasn’t simply confined to Twitter both — there have been studies of her film and others she was affiliated with across the time getting evaluate bombed by individuals who merely wished to spite her … once more, for causes ill-defined and out of nowhere.
Some have stated her help of extra numerous casts/critic swimming pools — through inclusion riders, and so on. — is perhaps a catalyst … however in any case, Brie’s clearly conscious of the goal on her again. FWIW, Brie’s additionally getting a whole lot of of us dashing to her protection … but it surely’s a combined bag.
In fact, she’s going to do that latest film — which comes out subsequent yr — the place she’ll reprise her character … however with all of the grief she’s getting, we would not be shocked if she hangs it up and strikes on from the Mouse Home.
John Boyega will get this all too properly … he, too, had a rough go with the ‘Star Wars’ fan base, and Disney at giant. Protected to say, that studio and all that comes with it ain’t for everybody.
