Brie Larson Captain Marvel, who plays Hero Marvel, has every reason to be furious with the Marvel trolls.
The Oscar-winning actress has been getting hate online for years because of her role in the Marvel superhero movies. Ignore the protests made in bad faith.

It was the kind of straight-forward answer you don’t usually hear from a famous person. Press events for Disney movies are usually full of fake smiles and platitudes. All the actors have to do is answer softball questions without giving anything away. And yet, when Brie Larson was asked this kind of harmless question at the Disney D23 fan expo last weekend, she didn’t seem eager to play ball. The question was easy: How long will she keep playing Captain Marvel? She said, “I don’t know.” “Is anyone interested in me doing it again? ” She smiled, but the way she said it made it clear that this wasn’t a joke.
Some background, Larson joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the biggest superhero movie series in the world, with Captain Marvel in 2019. Larson played Carol Danvers, also known as Captain Marvel, a former US Air Force pilot who lost her memory while travelling through space and then got godlike powers. Larson was the first woman to be the main character in one of the 21 MCU movies. Before she was chosen to play Danvers, she was a well-respected actor. She shined in the 2014 indie film Short Term 12 and won the best actress Oscar for the 2015 drama Room.
Captain Marvel was a huge hit at the box office, making $1.12 billion, but it didn’t get great reviews. Larson herself was the target of a long-running campaign of hateful online comments from a small group of Marvel fans. The comments ranged from sexist to outright racist. Even now, there are videos on YouTube of angry men ranting about how she “ruined” a popular character. Her performance was called “flat” and boring, and many people thought she was to blame for how poorly the film was reviewed. Even the things she did when she wasn’t on screen were used to mock and hurt her.

It’s easy to see why people think that her angry response to this question about her MCU future was a nod to this harassment. Larson posted a picture of herself, two of her co-stars, and the director of next year’s Captain Marvel sequel The Marvels, along with the message “*trolls burn*,” which seems to back up this idea.
People who have said mean things about Larson on social media often say that the backlash is not sexist at all. It is just an honest response to a bad movie. People say that the writing is bad and boring. Larson’s character was arrogant and didn’t have much depth. She didn’t do a good job in the role. Of course, all of this could be true. But Larson can hardly be blamed on his own. There are a lot of one-dimensional characters, stiff acting, and awkward dialogue in the MCU. From Gwyneth Paltrow’s disinterested Pepper Potts in the Iron Man movies to Benedict Cumberbatch’s hammy, fake Doctor Strange, there are a lot of big-name actors in the Marvel universe who give performances that make Larson’s look like a charisma powerhouse. But the rules are different if you’re not a man named Chris.
Larson’s character teams up with Ms. Marvel (played by Pakistani-born Canadian actor Iman Vellani) and Monica Rambeau in The Marvels, which is directed by 32-year-old US actor Nia DaCosta (played by Black actor Teyonah Parris). Larson has been targeted because of her gender, but she is still white, and you can’t help but worry about the poisonous backlash that The Marvels will have to face. Actors of colour who are given major roles in major film franchises are often the targets of horrible online abuse campaigns. Moses Ingram, who played a major villain in the Star Wars spin-off Obi-Wan Kenobi, was a target just a few months ago. Most of the protests said the same things. “It’s not about race or gender.” “It’s just a poorly written character.” “It’s just a bad performance.” Fool me once, etc.
Larson’s supposed mistakes as Captain Marvel have gotten more attention over time, which was bound to happen. If you say something often enough, it will become the story. Larson has gotten a lot of support on social media, which shows that she still has a lot of loyal fans. After all, the movie she was in was one of the 30 highest-grossing movies ever made. But it’s still a story that keeps going around, and she’s very aware of that. If social media trolls can hurt someone as famous and successful as Brie Larson, what chance does anyone else have?
