A tweet from a soldier, who claims they are in the military unit whose jets are featured in Captain Marvel, reported that Disney can’t even fill a 500-seat theater with free tickets provided to the military unit.
The tweet has since been deleted, but YouTuber Donnie Thumbanfist captured it. You can see it in the video below.
According to our source, the tweet was deleted because Larson’s agents want to ensure she isn’t seen in a negative light. Our source told us, “Said his boss ordered him to delete it because of a bunch of BTS bulls*** where her agents want to keep her out of a negative light.”
Larson has become a lightning rod while in the lead up to Captain Marvel. She’s highly politicized the movie insinuating she wanted fewer white men reviewing Captain Marvel as well as covering her on the press tour. Her comments came after she specifically stated she didn’t want a 40 year old white man to review A Wrinkle Time. Larson would attempt to clarify those comments by saying she simply wanted to “bring more seats up to the table.”
Not only has Larson made highly divisive gender and race based comments, but she’s also referred to the film as her “form of activism.” She would even describe it as promoting intersectional feminism. In fact, she revealed that Marvel Studios came to her to make a “big feminist movie.”
She’s even used the Captain Marvel press tour to quip about the patriarchy that is “ringing on [her] parade.”
Interestingly enough, a day after reports dropped indicating Larson would be playing Captain Marvel, the actress did an interview with MTV International where she revealed she had no idea who Captain Marvel was and even believed the character was a male.
Larson isn’t the only one who has derided Marvel fans in the lead-up to Captain Marvel. Many entertainment sites derided fans for expressing that they simply were not interested in seeing the movie. These websites described fans as “sexist trolls.”
In response to Larson’s comments as well as the media coverage describing fans who were uninterested in the film as “sexist trolls,” One America News Network’s Jack Posobiec launched the #AlitaChallenge encouraging fans to skip out on Captain Marvel and instead watch Alita: Battle Angel.
Actor James Woods, who gave voice to Hades in Disney’s Hercules, also criticized Disney and Brie Larson using the popular distracted boyfriend meme.
What do you make of the fact that the military unit whose planes were using in Captain Marvel are refusing to see the movie which isBrie Larson Air Force free of charge?
