You may be wondering why Captain Marvel is a relevant topic on a political blog, and the answer to that is the entertainment industry has become politicized, meaning Captain Marvel is more than just a superhero movie: it’s the latest flash point in the American culture wars.
The latest edition of Entertainment Weekly lays it out clearly; sexism is a major theme in the upcoming movie:
“Intergalactic odd couple Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson return to 1995 to fight aliens, sexism.”
Great. Already we know this movie will push the Female Victimhood Myth and more.
Larson has even said the movie will be “her form of activism” which is just wonderful:
Wonderful. Lord knows we could use more female celebrities lecturing us about feminism and toxic masculinity!
However, despite the blitz from Disney and the feminists, it appears as of now the good guys are winning. The movie’s roll out has been pretty disastrous thus far.
First there was Larson complaining that her press days were filled with too many white male journalists:
“Ahead of the upcoming release of “Captain Marvel,” actress and star Brie Larson reportedly chose a female journalist who has cerebral palsy to interview her after coming to the realization that her previous press tours had a tendency “to be overwhelmingly white male.”
Journalist Keah Brown, who sat down with Larson, described herself in Thursday’s Marie Claire UK piece as being someone who writes “about pop culture, disability (I have cerebral palsy), blackness and womanhood.”
Brown acknowledged in the article that Larson had “requested” her to conduct the interview, which she said was “game-changing” and “the biggest opportunity I’ve had.” After asking why she was selected, the actress discussed a trend that she’d noticed.
“About a year ago, I started paying attention to what my press days looked like and the critics reviewing movies, and noticed it appeared to be overwhelmingly white male,” Larson said. “So, I spoke to Dr. Stacy Smith at the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, who put together a study to confirm that.”
Brie, I’m gonna let you in on a little-known fact: superhero fans are overwhelmingly white men. Please take a moment to process this bombshell news.
When you think “comic book nerds,” you think of pasty white guys, right? You think of these guys:
But evidently Brie Larson is disappointed they don’t look like this:
Brie Larson’s dilemma is that she can’t stand white men, but also wants to make a lot of money shoving feminist propaganda down their throats. In typical authoritarian leftist fashion, she reviles the people she simultaneously wants to rule over.
This brainwashed Becky also went a step further:
“In her Crystal Award for Excellence in Film acceptance speech at the Crystal + Lucy Awards Wednesday night, actress Brie Larson cited USC Annenberg’s “Critic’s Choice” study in a call for diversity in entertainment coverage.
She disclosed how, “of the 100 highest-grossing movies in 2017, less than a quarter of the critics were white women, less than ten percent were underrepresented men, and only 2.5 percent were women of color.”
Recognizing that “reviews change lives” and the impact which films are considered for awards season, Larson called for more inclusive representation in the industry. “Am I saying I hate white dudes?” the Oscar-winner asked the room at the Beverly Hilton. “No, I’m not,” she replied.
No, but. . .
“I don’t want to hear what a white man has to say about ‘A Wrinkle in Time.’ I want to hear what a woman of color, a biracial woman has to say about the film. I want to hear what teenagers think about the film.”
“I’m not saying I hate white dudes, but white dudes need to shut the fuck up.”
I’m sure her handlers have tried explaining to her it’s not smart to disparage the very demographic that makes or breaks superhero movies, and yet Captain Basic Bitch still cannot restrain herself from excoriating white males.
In addition to her comments about white men, movie review site Rotten Tomatoes removed the “Want to See/Don’t Want to See” voting poll for Captain Marvel after its “Want to See” score was voted down to just 27%.
In typical leftwing fashion, they buried their heads even further in the sand and claimed Captain Marvel’s low score was a result of “internet trolling” and “fragile masculinity”. They basically tried to claim the 27% score was illegitimate. I guess if you exclude and ignore the input of people who don’t like the movie, that makes it all go away!
“Rotten Tomatoes says the changes were due to a general “uptick in non-constructive input, sometimes bordering on trolling, which we believe is a disservice to our general readership.”
LA LA LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU! I CAN’T HEAR YOU! GIRL POWERRR!!
Rotten Tomatoes has spoken: negative opinions about Captain Marvel and Brie Larson’s annoying feminism are automatically presumed to be in bad faith and not welcome.
Of course they’ll never be able to reckon with the fact that the movie is already reviled because of its decision to push feminist propaganda and because of its star’s transparent hatred for white males (who also happen to be the core audience for the superhero movie genre.)
Finally, Captain Marvel herself Brie Larson is just an unpleasant woman. There’s the stuff she said about white males above, and then there’s also this:
This chick has some serious issues.
And we haven’t even gotten to her acting. Have you noticed that in almost every shot of the movie, she has the same wooden expression on her face?
I went through the trailer and took a screenshot of her face in each scene:
Wait, here’s a smirk!
Back to normal:
Even when she’s in her full superpower mode, she’s still dour and wooden:
You can see pretty clearly why many men have instinctively rejected this movie: Captain Marvel looks like your bitchy ex-girlfriend. She’s a total iceberg.
Men simply react negatively on a visceral level to women with Resting Bitch Face.
With the Avengers series concluding in April after the release of Endgame, Marvel is moving on to the next generation (or “Phase 4” as the studio calls it). Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and the original Avengers are passing the torch on and a new group of superheroes will be carrying the Marvel franchise into the 2020s. Captain Marvel is supposed to be the linchpin of Phase 4 of the Marvel Universe, because apparently she’s the most powerful superhero of all. Go figure.
It would really suck if Marvel’s Phase 4 turns into a big leftwing/diversity circle jerk with Captain Feminism as the face of the franchise, but from what we’ve seen of Captain Marvel, that appears to be the case.
The only way we can stop this is by rejecting these movies financially.
We have a patriotic duty to ensure Captain Marvel bombs at the box office so Hollywood learns its lesson: stop fucking ruining movies by turning them into garbage leftwing propaganda pieces.
The entertainment industry needs to start entertaining again. Stop the indoctrination.
The only way they’ll get the message is if we hit them where it hurts: their bottom line.
Money talks. And it seems to be talking already: the original projections for Captain Marvel were $180 million on opening weekend, but that number has been revised lower to about $100 million and possibly as low as $80 million.
Take your money elsewhere this weekend.
Hollywood needs to get the message.
