Why men hate Brie and ‘Captain Marvel’ irresistibly?
Brie Larson is known for movies like ‘Room’, ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’, ‘The Spectacular Now’, and also, of course, ‘Captain Marvel’. However, the failure of ‘Captain Marvel’ has led to MCU fans believing that it was Brie Larson’s fault, and thus there’s a free flow of hate against her, now and then.
Though it’s debatable whether Brie had anything to do with ‘Captain Marvel’s’ failure. Some also claim that it’s just unreasonable outrage against Brie because she keeps raising her voice on important women’s issues.
A female Brie supporter recently claimed on Twitter that men hate Brie and Carol Danvers simply because they are strong women. This tweet invited a heated debate, and pro-Brie and anti-Brie trends had some legit arguments to make.
Men only hate Brie and Carol because they are powerful women
This Christmas must have been pretty good for Brie as she was trending for all the right reasons. Though the reason for the trend originated from the failure of the Gal Gadot starring DCEU’s ‘Wonder Woman 1984’, Brie was a direct beneficiary of it.
As the sequel to the spectacular ‘Wonder Woman’ disappointed moviegoers, MCU fans realized ‘Captain Marvel’ wasn’t so bad after all. This led to Brie Larson and ‘Captain Marvel’ trending on Twitter.
Amid the trend, a Twitter user tweeted:
“It’s time we have the conversation that men only hate Captain Marvel because she’s a powerful woman. And Brie said she wasn’t playing her for men to like her. Don’t even try to say, ‘it’s because of her attitude! she’s cocky’ because those are the same reasons you love Tony.”
Now, some might say she had a point, and there were tweets in support of this logic, but it didn’t go well with the majority.
The real reason why Captain Marvel faces so much hate
While there’s a section of men that definitely hates strong women, that factor necessarily isn’t at play when it comes to the hate against Brie Larson and Captain Marvel.
One of the users made an argument against the claim and tweeted:
A female user tweeted how she felt that the combination of Brie, and the way Captain Marvel’s character was crafted, almost seemed like a political agenda.
All these tweets explain one thing, that Brie Larson and ‘Captain Marvel’ aren’t hated because they are strong, but because the character was flawless to the degree that it almost felt artificial.
Keeping the entire Twitter argument aside, indeed, the undying hate for ‘Captain Marvel’ and Brie Larson is not justified. However, claiming that men hate ‘Captain Marvel’ because she is a strong woman might also be too much of a stretch
The movie was full of flaws, and the character lacked any relatable dimensions. That being said, there’s a lot to hope for from Brie Larson and Captain Marvel in ‘Captain Marvel 2’. And if the movie shoots down the correct targets, trolls are going to shut themselves away.
