Brie is being asked to step down and let a POC helm CM


CARE2Petitons is asking Brie Larson to step down from her Captain Marvel character to show she truly believes in what she preaches. See link (not click bait)

Anyone have some meaningful thoughts or insight on this issue? If it even should be an issue?

She should do CM2 in blackface!

Oh no he ditint!

Lol... oh yes he did. :P

Maybe she'll do her hair in dreads instead to really capture the essence.

Frankly there was a black Captain Marvel before Carol Danver took the mantle. Her name was Monica Rambeau.

reply

Haha - that would be great. Undone by your own virtue signalling.

That is what I call, a real social justice.

Exactly!

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 when asked about her reasons for choosing Brown as her interviewer. “So, I spoke to 
Dr. Stacy Smith at the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, who put together a study to confirm that. Moving forward, I decided to make sure my press days were more inclusive. After speaking with you, the film critic Valerie Complex and a few other women of color, it sounded like across the board they weren’t getting the same opportunities as others. When I talked to the facilities that weren’t providing it, they all had different excuses


THAT’S called practing what she preaches. That is what her “virtue signaling” and “anti-white male” agenda is all about: inclusiveness and actual representation. And I know, she didn’t need to make those “anti-white men” comments to piss the incels off. Her strive for diversity is something that enrages them enough.

So, she needs to give up her high profile Marvel role otherwise she isn’t who she says she is? (Let’s put aside the fact that she herself said that Ms. Marvel, currently a mantle held by a Muslim girl, should join the MCU and it naturally pissed off many of those attacking Brie.) I see we have here a little hostage situation. Goddamn, the steps the Brie detractors (all the incels and reich wing) will take to put this woman down.... just downright pathetic. None of it is suprising, of course.

And needles to say, this petition is pure propaganda. Those supporting it couldn’t care less about POC getting big roles (they oppose that). But obviously, agenda-driven incels/the reich will do whatever they can to silence people like Brie and they’ll exploit whatever causes those fighting for equal rights support. Well guess what... Brie doesn’t have ANYTHING to prove to you and the Tuck Carlsons/Candance Owens/Laura Ingrahams of the world. Nothing. She isn’t going anywhere and these silly boycotts against her will only continue to fail.

Now was this meaningful enough for you? Not anti-Brie Larson propaganda enough? Too fact-based? GOOD.

Btw...

Oh yeah, the people who supposedly can’t stand her have her back. You fail.

You cant stand people who use the word incel. Its lazy and unoriginal. I don't give a shit about what Brie Larson said months ago. But Brie Larson going on and on about how hard it is to be a Black Person in Hollywood. I don't necessary disagree. But if she really believes that. Maybe she should give up her role and let a black person play Monica Rambeau as Captain Marvel. That called practicing what she preaches. Not just getting Poc and Woman to interview you. Also the gender of critics who reviewed her movie is irreverent. There plenty of women who thought Captain Marvel was boring as shit. and there not film critics. A bad movie is a bad movie no matter who reviewing it.

It used to be Hitler. Is incel the new Hitler? Was Hitler an incel? Tune in next week to watch millennial history revisionist to find out.

DracTarashV2 lost their platform when succumbing to the basic law of discourse: "the dumbest person in the room is always revealed as the first to use an insult"

DracTrash, you're directing your pent up anger & frustration at the wrong person my dude. Take that shit somewhere else.

That's great she's doing all these wonderful things to make the world more inclusive, especially without being insulting to anyone while doing it. Because we all know how hard that is, don't we Drac?

I'm not sure who you're trying to convince in your poorly thought out rant.

Frankly if Brie Larson wants to uplifting black people and black people in Hollywood. Letting Monica Rambeau, a black woman and the first female Captain Marvel be the MCU Captain Marvel. Would be good first step of showing she not just full of herself.

reply

I agree. These people need to play by their own rules. I've heard Carol Danvers is the worst CM anyway.

reply

The movie has already been made. Are they talking about the next movie with Captain Marvel in it? It's really distracting and irritating when a different actor takes over a role that was already established with somebody else.
