I'm just gonna say, I like Brie Larson. I think she suffered from a mediocre script, but Captain Marvel was a better feminist film than Wonder Woman
@Possible Paradox, how could you say something so controversial? Hey so brave??
@Possible Paradox, her Kree brainwashing taught her to hide her emotions, but underneath she is a cocky tomboy. Throughout her movie you can see her struggle with her two personalities. Its a solid addition to the MCU even if a lot of people don't like the actress
@Possible Paradox, I agree. I also think Tony stark as iron man in the first movie is far from what he is now so I'm sure she will grow into the role. Plus I enjoyed her in Kong Skull island but yea weka script didnt help her in Cap Marvel
if anything place your trust in Kevin Feige
@Possible Paradox, the issue was the movie was centered around captain marvel being a "strong independent woman who don't need no man" instead of making it a good movie. We need more movies like Alien and Terminator 2 where we see the female characters as badass
@TheJimmy144, well what I liked about the movie was that the fact that she was a woman was actually never brought up. I'm trying to remember how much the trailers and stuff brought it up but besides the word "HER" turning into "HERO" I can't think of anything. Which makes me think the audience and internet made it into a "strong independent young woman" thing more than the movie did. But I could be wrong
@Possible Paradox, I agree with the first point, and partially with the second. I've been arguing for months that most of the initial hate toward Brie Larson was/is a symptom of something ugly. Many smart people then bought into it for different reasons. Wonder Woman is a better feminist hero NOW, but she started out as basically a cover model.
@Neil Dylandy, oh definitely, wonder woman used to be much more...regressive? But for me, having a movie where the female protagonist enters a world controlled by men and is pretty much clueless the entire time and needed the guidance of a man, even though in context TOTALLY makes sense, didn't paint a very strong woman. Meanwhile in Captain Marvel, Carol was much more independent aside from teaming up with Fury, and the fact that she is a woman was never a factor. Just my opinion though, I should rewatch both of them
@Possible Paradox, That's a fair point, but as much as I think all the Brie Larson hate is asinine, Wonder Woman was admittedly a little less on the nose about it -- and was a better movie in general (imo). Don't get me wrong, I liked Captain Marvel a lot. Honestly, most of my complaints focused on the saturation of "Marvelisms," not the story.
@Possible Paradox, Brie Larson is a CUNT! The character suffered because who they picked. Hell Kristen Stewart could have done better and that's saying ALOT!
