Well, we now have strong women in the superhero world, and to be honest it’s great to see but the fervor that’s been building is a great but also somewhat worthy of an eye roll. Gal Gadot has actually congratulated Brie Larson since, quite honestly, Captain Marvel has already been breaking box office records apparently, much as Wonder Woman did when it came out. There is a lot of positive fallout to be taken from these movies and it’s actually kind of an interesting idea to think that both women might be able to be seen in a movie together. But still there’s the lingering idea that the box office numbers are being either padded because of those that are eager to see anything but another male-centered superhero movie, or are willing to go and see something that’s not a white, male-centered superhero movie. You might wonder why I’d bother saying this, and it has nothing to do with misogyny or even a desire to discredit the film.
It’s because despite the need to ignore a lot of negative reviews, Captain Marvel is a big part of the Marvel universe, and in the comics it’s been seen that she’s been highly instrumental in a lot of different story lines. But it’s also because, much like Black Panther, the idea of praising this movie and raising it to such impressive box office sales seems more like an effort of those that are wanting change to push an agenda instead of admitting to actually liking the movie. The negative reviews are usually best to be ignored, but without at least taking into account that they exist and are being made in a rational and reasonable manner, one misses the point that the story might not have been quite as masterful as some might...
