There are a lot of people out there who do not want to see Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, and it seems to be ramping up now that Captain Marvel 2 has been announced.
I’m really not sure why Brie Larson is so unpopular as Captain Marvel, but so-called Marvel fans really don’t like her and want her gone.
They’re so determined, in fact, that a few of them have started a new petition on the website, The Petition Site, which claims they want Brie Laron replaced by a “woman of color” as Captain Marvel.
I’m going to be honest, I don’t this hatred of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, but they’re really determined and here’s what they had to say about the whole thing:
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.
People really want Brie Larson out as Captain Marvel before Captain Marvel 2
This does sound a bit strange to me. I really don’t get why this petition is claiming that Brie Larson needs to step down from her role to prove that she is an ally of social justice and ensure a gay black or Asian woman plays Captain Marvel.
It sounds like a bit of a weak excuse to me. That said, the petition has a lot of signatures. It’s almost reached its goal of 30,000 signatures.
The petition currently sits at just over 28,000, so it looks like there’s quite a bit of support to get rid of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel before Captain Marvel 2 starts shooting.
