What are your opinions on the Brie Larson controversy? Currently it looks like the majority aren't on her side, reasonably.

I'm not liking where she's going, especially if she's supposed to be the face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Just so I'm clear, which controversy are you referring to?

The smiling thing, or the love interest?
Neither. The whole ageist, racist and sexist thing. She said she doesn't want "40 year old white dudes" opinions about a Wrinkle in Time because it isn't made for them. She also doesn't want to be interviewed by white men and she spoke about the supposed patriarchy. I just want to get a discussion going. No hate on this thread, though. That would be nice.

She mainly just said she wanted to interviewed by more minorities. I don’t care either way. It seems to me that publications and programs would need to be the ones to hire more minorities in the first place rather than some actress demanding “send in more brown people”. Or better yet, she could have arranged for such interviews and just done them. But virtue signaling and “making a stand” makes for more headlines.

She’s pretty cringey to listen to though. Honestly seems like the studio put her up to that and now she’s just awkwardly defending herself.

I’m glad I missed it. I hope this doesn’t over shadow the movie. I know it’s making rotten tomatoes to modify ratings right now...but why can’t they just be an actor.

I agree. The camps both arguing about how they should either watch the movie to stick it to the patriarchy or complaining about it because of SJWs just feels like a repeat of the Ghostbusters 2016 situation.

Agreed. I'm getting sick of politics.

Though I must say, the thing I'm looking forward to the most in Captain Marvel is... Skrulls, kree, S.H.I.E.L.D. and a... cat? Nah. Phil Coulson. nods head

I think everyone's blowing what she's saying WAY out of proportion. Basically she just wishes for more diversity in interviewers and such. She doesn't want white people to hate Wrinkle in Time (I'm white and I loved it. Didn't read the book), just that if white dudes didn't like it, that's OK, you weren't the primary audience. That's my take on her. Also, I wouldn't kick her out of bed.... for eating crackers.

Fair enough. I understand that. Thats definitely her intent. although the comment about the patriarchy was:rolleyes:...

Regardless, looking at the audience score for A wrinkle in Time, it sucked. But oh well, it's just the 40 year old white men, right guys?https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/a_wrinkle_in_time_2018 that's just what it sounds like, by the way.

Yeah, not racism, it's just an excuse for her taste in film, i presume. I've never seen A Wrinkle in Time. It might be alright, i don't know. All i know is Brie Larson has discouraged me from seeing it.

I wouldn't say Brie Larson is straight up racist, but if i were to say "I don't care what black people have to say about The Lord of the Rings. It wasn't made for them" that sounds much worse.

Captain Marvel, forgetting Brie Larson, looks passable at best (trailers, reviews). I hope for better than the best.
