    Long before the women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe joined forces for the epic female scene in “Avengers: Endgame, Marvel had expressed interest in an all-women Marvel mashup movie. But after that scene in “Endgame,” fans have been asking when they’ll see the female movie hit theaters. Now, Brie Larson, one of Variety’s Power of Women honorees, confirms to Variety that she, along with her Marvel co-stars, have had talks with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about making that film a reality. During a sit-down interview at her Power of Women cover shoot, Captain Marvel herself was asked if the...

    Full title: Captain Marvel’s Brie Larson demands more diversity in Hollywood, so fans create a petition to have her replaced with a gay woman of color Captain Marvel star Brie Larson originally made headlines when she was announced as Marvel’s first female superhero to feature in her own solo film. Captain Marvel grossed over $1-billion in earnings, making it the seventh Marvel feature to reach over a billion dollars at the box office. With the spotlight fixed on Larson, the 29-year-old actress took the opportunity to draw attention to the apparent oppression of women in the film industry, suggesting females...

    If you live by the sword of identity politics, you're going to die by the sword of identity politics. Brie Larson, who's known as much for being a social justice warrior championing the cause of intersectionality as much as she's known for playing Captain Marvel, is facing calls to resign her largest, most lucrative acting gig to date. Those who want her to step down want her to do so in order for the producers to cast a gay woman of color. The online petition, which has garnered nearly 7,000 signatures as of the writing of this article, declares: We...

    “Captain Marvel” has made more than $1 billion worldwide, and one man can lay claim to contributing more to that box-office haul than anyone else in the world: Steve Ruppel of Wisconsin. After setting a Guinness World Record by seeing Brie Larson’s superhero drama 104 times at the Marcus Cedar Creek Cinema in Rothschild 104 times, the apparent super fan went back 12 more times for good measure. “I thought it was the most insane thing ever, I thought it was impossible,” Ruppel told local news station WSAW of his feat. “I wasn’t even sure why it was even a...

    “Captain Marvel” became the 2019 box office’s first $1 billion hit on Wednesday, along with being the seventh film from Marvel Studios and the 38th film of all time to hit that 10-digit benchmark. Unlike past Marvel Studios hits that have grossed $1 billion, “Captain Marvel” was the first to do so with a lead character who wasn’t introduced in a previous Marvel film. Even “Black Panther,” the highest-grossing film of the 2018 domestic box office, had its Wakandan superhero introduced in “Captain America: Civil War.” “Captain Marvel” did have the presence of Samuel L. Jackson’s fan favorite Nick Fury,...

    Deadline ^ | March 8, 2019 | Anthony D'Alessandro
    At this point in time Captain Marvel is eyeing a $63.5M Friday, including her $20.7M Thursday night haul. That figure is just under Beauty and the Beast‘s first day of $63.77M (which turned around a $174.7M opening, the best ever in March), and under Batman v. Superman‘s Good Friday haul of $81.55M on March 25, 2016 which grossed a 3-day of $166M. Beauty and the Beast reps the top opening for March, followed by BvS, and then The Hunger Games with $152.5M, which it looks like Captain Marvel is beating. Where does this put Captain Marvel stateside? Industry estimates predict...

    In last year’s Midterm race for seats in the United States House of Representatives, Anti-GamerGate personality and Revolution 60 developer Brianna Wu ran as a Democratic candidate in the primary election for Massachuset’s 8th Congressional District. Despite her political inexperience, Wu garnered 22.9% of the district’s vote (16,878 votes out of a total of 73,582), but ultimately lost the election to her incumbent opponent, Stephen Lynch. As the 2020 United States House of Representatives elections rapidly approach, Wu has once again announced her candidacy, which will feature a heavy emphasis on government regulation concerning internet relations. On March 6th, Wu...

    A new rumor has landed online that echoes my own concerns about the Captain Marvel movie and Brie Larson, but this is claimed to be coming from on top -- as high as Disney CEO Bob Iger. The rumor claims that the Avengers cast, or certain members of the Avengers cast, is unhappy with Brie Larson being the face of the MCU going forward. It's said one particular actress - hinted at it being Elizabeth Olsen - feels that they are getting pushed aside, that they are getting treated differently.
  • Rotten Tomatoes limits audience reviews after trolling on 'Captain Marvel'

    The Hill ^ | 02/26/18 | Chris Mills Rodrigo
    Film website Rotten Tomatoes announced this week that it would disable audience reviews for movies that have not been released. The move is intended to crack down on what the site calls "non-constructive input, sometimes bordering on trolling, which we believe is a disservice to our general readership." The move comes after the movie "Captain Marvel" starring Brie Larson was inundated with bad moviegoer reviews after being listed on Rotten Tomatoes before its March 8 scheduled release. “We are disabling the comment function prior to a movie’s release date,” Rotten Tomatoes announced in a post on Monday. “We have decided...

    [snip] Trolls have already begun trashing "Captain Marvel," dropping it's rating to 63 percent before anyone has even seen it. At least part of the online vitriol seems to stem from fans misunderstanding "Marvel" star Brie Larson's call for more inclusivity during press tours into an attack on white men overall. [snip] Below are just a few examples of the kinds of comments that are dropping her RT scores and note that virtually none of these have anything to do with the content of the film, which is the point of the site. Instead they are largely attacks on Larson...

    I previously wrote how Brie Larson is a huge gamble for Disney and Kevin Feige - especially following the failure of Star Wars: The Last Jedi - and now the Captain Marvel movie looks to be in big, big trouble, unfortunately. Back in January, following the NCAA trailer, it was reported that Captain Marvel was projected to have a massive $160 million opening weekend with some estimates even offering $180 million. However, the bad news for Kevin Feige and Captain Marvel is that those projections have now dropped upwards of $80 million (note: article has been updated to reflect million...

    Hollywood Reporter ^ | February 13, 2019 | Rebeca Keegan
    [Snip] This dance studio is where Larson comes to feel empowered — occasionally via the out­stretching of jazz hands — and that means you can spare her any "you-go-girl" lines or confetti cannons full of condescension. Yes, she is playing the title role in the more than $150 million Captain Marvel, the 21st movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and first ever from the wildly successful Disney division to be fronted by a woman. But, three years after she won an Oscar for her performance in the indie drama Room, the 29-year-old actress is confident enough to reject your media...

    Forbes ^ | September 25, 2018 | Scott Mendelson
    [Snip] Captain Marvel could be another $1 billion+ worldwide grosser. However, that’s not remotely a guarantee at this premature juncture. It may not even match the domestic ($413 million) and worldwide ($821m) totals of Wonder Woman. Unless Marvel and Walt Disney went uncharacteristically over budget, it won’t have to. Should Captain Marvel find itself on the defensive when it “only” earns about what Ant-Man and the Wasp ($621m) pulled in? Wonder Woman benefited from rave reviews and a narrative of Gal Gadot’s female superhero “saving” the DCEU after the critically-slammed Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. It offered a solo...

    One of the key measures included in the House and Senate bills to replace the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act is legislative language that would help to keep federal funds from going to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest provider of abortions. To protect the hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars that currently go to Planned Parenthood from being diverted to other women’s health clinics, a number of celebrities have joined in a series of campaigns designed to convince people to fight on Planned Parenthood’s behalf. The most recent effort was spearheaded by Now This, which published a video featuring numerous...
