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 obtained popping out. A type of initiatives, “The Marvels,” includes Brie and her character Captain Marvel … solely this time, it’s going to embody different girls with Marvel-like powers.
Whereas she was doing press exterior 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 would not know, overtly questioning/questioning whether or not folks really need her to take up the mantle any greater than she already has. It was slightly tense, and the interviewer tried lightening the temper … to no actual avail.
Now, the backlash … Brie’s catching flak from a superb quantity of oldsters replying to this video within the feedback — with their primary gripe being, why is she making such a giant passive-aggressive stink over such a layup of a query … particularly with this saga being years outdated.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 basically … when Brie was forged as Captain Marvel again in 2018 and with its launch in 2019, there was loads of seemingly random hate geared toward her — for quite a lot 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 stories of her film and others she was affiliated with across the time getting overview 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 various casts/critic swimming pools — through inclusion riders, and so forth. — is likely to be a catalyst … however in any case, Brie’s clearly conscious of the goal on her again. FWIW, Brie’s additionally getting loads of people speeding to her protection … but it surely’s a combined bag.
After all, she’s going to do that latest film — which comes out subsequent 12 months — the place she’ll reprise her character … however with all of the grief she’s getting, we would not be stunned if she hangs it up and strikes on from the Mouse Home.
John Boyega will get this all too effectively … he, too, had a tough go with the ‘Star Wars’ fan base, and Disney at massive. Protected to say, that studio and all that comes with it ain’t for everybody.
