Disney sure knows how to pick them, don’t they? The future Lead star of Marvel’s Captain Marvel which is set to open next year shortly before the Final Avengers film has an ‘interesting’ take on film critics, basically, the industry is too male and too white, and that is a problem for Larson.
“I don’t need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work about ‘A Wrinkle in Time,’” actress says “It wasn’t made for him. I want to know what it meant to women of color, biracial women, to teen women of color.”
“Am I saying I hate white dudes? No, I am not,” Larson said Wednesday night when accepting the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film at the Women in Film Lucy and Crystal Awards. “What I am saying is if you make a movie that is a love letter to women of color, there is an insanely low chance a woman of color will have a chance to see your movie, and review your movie.”
Larson noted a recent study from the University of Southern California’s (Dammit USC) Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, which found that more than 63 percent of film critics are white and male, and only 18.1 percent were white and female (Because this is a problem in society that needs to be addressed now)
Larson went on to say that while “it sucks that reviews matter,” the fact that reviews can greatly help or hurt a film’s success is just that — a fact of the industry.
The film that Larson is talking about is the Disney film A Wrinkle In Time that got poor reviews from critics and audiences alike. Despite the hype of a black female director and Oprah Winfrey in the cast, the film bombed at the box office losing over 100 million dollars for Disney. But according to Larson, the problem isn’t that it was a terrible film that nobody wanted to see, the problem was that there were too many white guys reviewing the movie that didn’t ‘get’ the most powerful message that was at hand.
As I have stated many times, Progressives are on a mission to destroy everything you love if it isn’t up to THEIR progressive standards. We’ve seen how they have attacked properties like Marvel Comics, Star Wars, and Video Games for what THEY deem to be too white and too male. Of course, it’s not racism or sexism when THEY discriminate on the basis of skin color and gender because they are doing it in the name of ‘diversity’, so it’s ok. Well as a black male amateur critic, I can say the film was stupid and Larson should stay in her lane.
