Brie Larson looks cheerful and upbeat as her latest Instagram Reel shows her bouncing from a casual fit into a stunning black gown.
Brie Larson is looking both playful and pretty in her latest Instagram post. The Captain Marvel actress goes “from day to night,” bouncing into the frame in a sweater and light-colored pants before covering the camera with her hand. When she takes her hand away, she is wearing a sexy black dress with a see-through skirt and looks ready for a night out on the town.
It looks like Brie Larson isn’t letting recent backlash from the first teaser trailer for The Marvels get her down. According to Rolling Stone, the trailer has already received over 300,000 dislikes on YouTube and “thousands of copypasta comments” whose intent is to overwhelm the comments section with so many negative comments that the positive ones all but disappear.
Even Morbius, one of the worst-rated superhero films in recent memory, only got 11,000 dislikes over the span of a year. So, even after people watched the movie and hated it, they didn’t care enough to return to let everyone know how bad it was, but yet Brie Larson’s new film is already being trashed without anyone having even seen it yet? What’s the deal?
Well, it could be the same thing that happened when Brie Larson first became Captain Marvel: many male Marvel fans just hate her. The YouTube comments are an angry mix of complaining about Marvel going too far trying to be feminist and about Disney trying too hard to be “woke,” because not only is famously feminist Brie Larson in the film, but also Iman Vellani and Teyonah Parris, who portray characters who are famously outspoken about their Pakistani-American and African American heritage having an effect on their lives as superheroes.
Brie Larson also earned male fans’ ire during her press tour for her first time out as Captain Marvel when she said that there should be more female inclusion in superhero films because they were, for the most part, so very male-driven at the time.
Admittedly, these types of discussions can get tiring sometimes (remember when the word “woke” meant something else and we all could just watch movies without thinking about race or sexual orientation?), but it seems premature to condemn The Marvels just because Brie Larson stars in it.
The film itself is about Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani), and Captain Monica Rambeau of S.A.B.E.R. (Teyonah Parris), three superheroes who suddenly begin switching bodies and powers. Young Ms. Marvel seems very enthusiastic about the chance to work with Captain Marvel, her idol, but the more mature ladies seem to agree that the novelty wears off quickly.
From the trailer, it objectively looks like the film has plenty of laughs as well as action, so the only real “problem” that can be seen so far is that it’s full of women… something which apparently makes some Marvel fans very angry. There is no “woke” agenda being pushed in the trailer, but the trolls must believe it’s coming. Otherwise, why all the negativity?
For now, though, Brie Larson seems to be above it all. She looks cheerful and upbeat in her Instagram post, and she doesn’t seem to be worrying at all about the haters. You go, girl.
