It has come to my attention that there is a petition to remove Brie Larson from the MCU. It’s clear that the Captain Marvel movie was successful at the box office, but did it achieve that success despite itself and it’s lead actor?
From the petition website:
We need Brie Larson to step down from her role to prove she is an ally of social justice and ensure a gay woman of color plays the role. Let Monica, the original female & BLACK Captain Marvel instead of white-washing characters for the benefit of the straight, white men running Disney. She hasn’t donated money to any charity other than The Motion Picture and Television Fund Foundation (https://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/brie-larson) and it’s time for her to show she is not all-talk.
Of course I don’t believe Brie will be removed from the MCU, because it appears Marvel is doubling down in the next phase of the movies with their social justice agenda. With that said, there should be a valid concern about the behavior of Brie and the impact that she has on the MCU going forward.
