Brie Larson Wants Her ‘Captain Marvel’ Press Tour To Be Less White And Male

In an interview with Marie Claire, Actress Brie Larson is making sure that her press tour for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film Captain Marvel will not be overwhelmingly white and male. Larson handpicked Keah Brown, an African-American disabled female journalist to be her interviewer. 

Well, you can’t say you didn’t see this coming

As first reported by IndieWire, in an interview with Marie Claire, Actress Brie Larson is making sure that her press tour for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film Captain Marvel will not be overwhelmingly white and male. Larson handpicked Keah Brown, an African-American disabled female journalist to be her interviewer.

 

 

“About a year ago, I started paying attention to what my press days looked like and the critics reviewing movies, and noticed it appeared to be overwhelmingly white male,” Larson said when asked about her reasons for choosing Brown as her interviewer. “So, I spoke to Dr. Stacy Smith at the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, who put together a study to confirm that. Moving forward, I decided to make sure my press days were more inclusive. After speaking with you, the film critic Valerie Complex and a few other women of color, it sounded like across the board they weren’t getting the same opportunities as others. When I talked to the facilities that weren’t providing it, they all had different excuses.”

 

 

Last June, Larson made headlines by calling out the film critic industry for being ‘too male and too white’ by defending the box office and critical bomb that was A Wrinkle in Time.

 

 

“I don’t need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work about ‘A Wrinkle in Time,’” the 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.”

 

 

Larson has been working with the University of Southern California’s Annenberg Inclusion Initiative which is a department that seeks to point out the lack of ‘diversity’ in multiple aspects in the film industry, this includes members of the film press as well. Disney has been driving hard on the marketing for Captain Marvel as the first female-led superhero film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Kevin Feige has stated that they plan on making her character the face of the MCU following Avengers: Endgame. One can only wait and wonder if her displeasure with her press media being too white or too male will turn off some fans from seeing the film when it releases in theaters on March 8th.

  7. I can’t see the executives directly in charge of seeing that this movie makes a profit thinking this was a good idea. Either the star is out of control or somebody from on high (Bob Iger??) has ruled that strong powerful and “woke” women should be introduced into the MCU and this movie is a test case. Gillete’s insulting man bashing ad has actually generated a stock price increase for Proctor and Gamble, so perhaps this is a test case to see if the effect can work for movies.

    ☑ comic written and illustrated by two white guys

    ☑ main character is white

    ☑ overwhelmingly white cast

    ☑ white writers

    ☑ furious virtue signalling in an attempt to appeal to sjws

    I didn’t really want to see this movie anyway… Brie larson has made her misandry blatantly clear in previous speeches where she berates movie critics. I wonder which white guy hurt her that she’s constantly lashing out at a single gender with a certain skin color…

    She is so obnoxious. I haven’t forgotten when she tweeted “To live life as a woman is to live life on the defense.” because a TSA agent asked for her phone number. She has since been paid millions to play “Girl Power!”, the super-hero, and still she complains.

    • I’m sure you’re also mad when women don’t “smile more” just because you asked them nicely. Rich or poor, women are always on the defense–no one gets paid to take that bullshit from men.

      • If the worse form of oppression a woman faces it being asked to smile, she has it pretty good. There are countries where women go to jail for being raped.
