      She doesn’t have to give up her job to support her friends who are bisexual and color. What you’re doing is being prejudiced against a woman there are tons of Representatives a black and gays that will be in Marvel Cinematic Universe there are several different Captain Marvel versions so you guys are just angry and prejudice against a woman.

          I donot support this at all, and I’m black, I mean no disrespect but it’s dumb to force a character to become something totally different just to satisfy a group of people, is captain marvel even supposed to be lesbian anyway?, is she lesbian in the comics?
          I’m all for a lesbian or a black superhero or a black lesbian superhero, so if you want one make one don’t try tomake some othee characteer into that

            Well said! Completely agree, JP. Brie IS Captain Marvel and she is a powerhouse in Hollywood for women. I would love to see a woman of color as a superhero; there are hundreds of untapped heroes to choose from. With the CMU suddenly finding itself with several vacancies, there is a big opportunity to build a powerful female presence here; of all colors. As long as Brie wants to continue as CM, then keep well-enough alone. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.

        Yeah. Carol Danvers was Ms. Marvel, and then Binary after Rogue stole her powers/memory. Rambeau is was and ever shall be the rightful heir to the title to be faithful to the comic.
        Casting a blonde white girl in a role is not fait accompli in terms of diversity either.

        1. Avatar

          Well...

          One could however argue that Marvel comics creating a new character to take the mantle of Captain Marvel instead of just having Carol Danvers take it so she could remain Ms. Marvel was a pretty ridiculous move to begin with and Marvel was making the choice that should have been made all along. Sure Monica was the next one named Captain Marvel, but I think we all know that Carol Danvers, who was introduced at just about the same time as Mar-Vel, should have always been his successor.

        Hollywood needs to stop replacing straight and/or white actors in roles that represent a straight and/or white(or whatever other skin color the comics made them) with gay people and people of whatever Color. Period. Just make some new characters that are gay or of different ethnicities. I am not racist or bigoted at all(also not white, I am native American) but the media needs to stop vastly overestimating and over representing gay people(3.4% of the usa’s population approx.). It’s fine to have gay superheroes but stop changing straight heroes into gay ones. Again make new ones that are of all races and sexual preferences or better yet(as superheroes are usually geared to children) leave sexuality out of it totally. Go by science or biology not how a tiny percent of the population feels. Diversity is important but not so much that they need to change people’s beloved comic characters that they grew up reading/fantasizing about or wanting to be like. Again make new superheroes that live alt lifestyles and stop catering to the tiny percent of the population rather than the 90+% of the population that doesn’t want to see their favorite characters changed in that way.

I know characters do change because of different reasons but to change just because she is white is beyond lame. Leave her be.

      Monica Rambeau, a Black female superhero, is the first person to ever use the “Captain Marvel” moniker. Monica Rambeau’s character was created in 1982 by writer Roger Stern and illustrator John Romita, Jr., who noted that Monica’s looks were originally modeled after Pam Grier

          Incorrect. Shazam never went by the name “Captain Marvel” under the DC banner. That was his name while he was still with Fawcett comics, where he debuted. By the time DC bought him in 1972, Marvel had trademarked “Captain Marvel,” so DC rebranded him as “Shazam.”

        1. Avatar

          There have been over 20 Captain Marvels over the years, of just about every color, gender, planet of origin, and sexual preference there is. And one was an and0roid and another a giant alien snake! So I have no problem with Marvel using their current one for its movies.

        I’m sorry but if you look it up, you will see that Marvel debuted its new Captain Marvel character in 1967 and quickly trademarked the name. This was after Fawcett ceased publishing the comics in 1953, and their trademark ostensibly lapsed.

      Wow do any of you that watch these movies know anything at all about the characters in the books? How can you call yourselves fans? We want the first female Cpt. Marvel. Monica is a black woman. Cant even figure out how Marvel Studios passed that up for the worst Cpt. Marvel yet. Brie Larson can not act either. Unicorn Store proves that with concrete certainty.

        But she isn’t the CURRENT Captain Marvel & therefore the 1 people know of as Captain Marvel! Everyone chill the hell out & enjoy the movies. Just think if the roles were reversed & it was a black or women character & people were wanting to change them white, or into a man? Just let the characters be what they currently are & have been for a while in some cases. If the character’s black, keep’em black. If there white & blonde handed, keep it that way! That’s how most of the populous knows them. Just cuz they may have been black or something 30+ years ago for a few years doesn’t mean you should. If that iteration worked they wouldn’t of changed it to the eventual carnation we have now.

      The movie should start with Carol “Captain Marvel” battle a villain then within 10 minutes she is dying and last dying breath she give her powers over to Monica R. Captain Marvel. A great death. And we will be through with Brie Larson.

      I understand and agree to an extent. If race was not the core focus of the comic or story, than race is open for any person to be Carol.
      However, if a tranny plays Carol, than women would be pissed that they can’t even play that role. Haha. So, be smart about casting.

      You do remember that the first (human) Captain Marvel was actually Monica Rambeau (Maria’s daughter in the movie), right? Now I can’t say the situation is based on unreasonable thoughts or feelings or that it isn’t, but (some) people would like to see the character as it originally appeared (but then IF that is the case… why is no one arguing about Scott Lang being AntMan and not Hank Pym?) The studio could say it’s because Carol’s the most recent and generally well known of the characters at the time…so what’s everyone else’s reasoning behind disliking a change?

      Perhaps Brie Larson should have kept her big fat mouth shut instead of whining about how she’s sick of white people in Hollywood and then maybe people wouldn’t be asking for her to put her money where her mouth is and step-down so a black women can play the role if you can’t understand that you seriously lack common sense.

        I made an account just to say this is the most disingenuous headline I’ve read in ages. NO ONE is saying they want Carol Danvers played by a black woman – they’re saying they want the Monica Rambeau Captain Marvel, probably the second most popular iteration of the mantle at this point, and a longtime cult favorite character, even before Carol was the Cap.

      Listen, the comics can’t even keep straight what is what and who is who. So many alternate universes and different dimensions. Retcons and “here’s what actually happened” emphasize Movie Bob’s point, “COMICS ARE WEIRD”.
      Was the first Iron Man a 100% true adaptation of his origins in the comics? No? They had to take creative license to tell a modern compelling story? You don’t say!
      Hank Pym wasn’t a founding Avenger? No Wasp? And why is Captain America in The Avengers (movie) if he wasn’t thawed from the ice until Avengers (comic) #4?
      People can’t really complain that the movies aren’t true to the comics when the comics aren’t even true to the comics, but especially when the movies were never true to the comics in the first place. I always suspect anyone who does complain about the movies like this are really pushing an agenda.

      Good movie? Smh. Let’s she how she does without Feige protecting her. Wedging her into the end credits of Infinity War made tons of normies see that mess thinking it would give more info on Infinity War (false advertising to the tune of 1BILLION +)
      Why do u think shes not mentioned in Phase 4?
      Btw, Marvel should hv told the TRUE STORY not recon all kinds of junk (Fury’s eye, Avengers Name to name 2) that just weakens the MCU.
      The character was Mar-vel, a Kree and Carol D his love interest. She ends up with powers in a explosion during a fight between Yon Rog and Mar-vel. Her power set isnt even close to the overpowered version u see in Feige’s M-She-U. She an ugly person with a terrible disposition. Her acting is good but shes not cut out for this. Wanda, Black Widow and the Gamora/Nebulaare my favs. Btw, Wanda would hv easily killed Thanos. Her chaotic powers drawf Cpt Marvels. Thor is the ONLY ONE that can stand up to any being in the Real Mcu. But hes made into a fat bum instead of a God. Go figure.

    Anasty rumor about Brie Larson and the future of Captain Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe began circulating over the weekend claiming Disney has lost confidence in the actress and Captain Marvel 2 is in jeopardy. But these unconfirmed reports feel like a fabrication by what we might as well call the white nationalist fringe of the entertainment news industry.

    On Saturday, September 21, We Got This Covered wrote about a Cosmic Book News article reporting that Disney has “lost confidence” in Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, and that somehow the Disney-Sony split over Spider-Man has exacerbated the situation. While it’s true that Captain Marvel 2 does not have a firm place in the MCU’s timeline yet, there’s no reason to assume it won’t be included as part of Phase Five, as Kevin Feige stated back at San Diego Comic-Con.

    This exciting, controversial piece of entertainment industry news probably makes a lot of Disney/Marvel critics very happy, particularly the ones who review-bombed Captain Marvel with eloquent analysis, like the one person who referred to it as an “SJW laden white male hating worthless POS movie.” (And that was before the movie even came out.)

    But before simply turning these rumors into content, we should be investigating where they come from. When we do, it becomes clear that this story was fabricated by someone looking to influence public opinion rather than report on something that’s remotely true.

    avengers endgame female heroes
    Captain Marvel stands with many of the MCU’s female heroes to defend Spider-Man in ‘Avengers: Endgame’.
    The Captain Marvel 2 rumor originates from the “Overlord DVD” YouTube channel. Its host claims their inside source said Disney deemed Brie Larson a “little stiff” and “a bit unlikable” in her portrayal of Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. (The language here already has a concerning tone of misogyny to it.)

    Marvel was allegedly “counting on pairing her up with Spider-Man in order to humanize and balance her out a bit.” Supposedly, the plan was to have her team up with Peter Parker in some capacity. This part actually sort of makes sense after the Far From Home post-credits, but beyond that, this quickly veers into total fantasy. The video claims that Carol Danvers would belittle Spidey to prop herself up. The host even cites this specific plot point as the reason Sony pulled Spidey out of the MCU — Sony didn’t want their biggest asset as the butt end of a joke.

    Why should anyone trust this rumor? They shouldn’t, at all.

    This “major scoop” from an “inside source” feels like pure BS, and Overlord DVD’s channel is just like the Marvel version of Mike Zeroh. Zeroh regularly posts YouTube videos about fake rumors and leaks related to Star Wars movies just to rack up the views from unsuspecting fans. Somehow, this Overlord guy is even less trustworthy.

    dicktor von doomcock
    Every Dicktor Von Doomcock video looks exactly like this.
    The host of Overlord DVD dubs himself Dicktor Van Doomcock (hence the DVD), who is the “future ruler of Earth.” According to his bio, DVD is a “supervillain and pop culture critic.” He wears a Doctor Doom knockoff helmet, speaks like he’s doing a bad Darth Vader impression, and wears a robe that looks like he bought it from a Time Lord 50 years ago. Overlord’s “co-host” is a small plush doll Cthulhu with an even more annoying voice. The entire thing looks like a dumpster fire, and that’s before he even starts talking.

    Who actually trusts this guy for entertainment news? He once wondered if Rian Johnson was “ruined” back in August 2018. Just a few days ago, he publicly used “the C word” to describe Johnson in a tweet. He even tried to spread a rumor that Rian Johnson was losing his upcoming Star Wars trilogy based on absolutely nothing.

    Overlord “raged” at Lando Calrissian being confirmed as pansexual in Solo, calling it “SJW news.” He once called Black Panther a “thickening pile of bullshit” because it was crafted as a “crusade” and a “political litmus test.” He also claimed that Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy committed a “crime against humanity” by perceiving Star Wars “as a delivery system for her feminist propaganda.”

    Say what you will about Brie Larson’s performance in Captain Marvel or the overall quality of the film, but the language used by Overlord is rooted in the hate speech of the same misogynists who called Rey a “Mary Sue.” These are the same people who review-bombed Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and The Last Jedi for presenting non-white male heroes to a mainstream audience.

    The vast majority of these videos are harsh reactions to progressive entertainment franchises. His opinions are overwhelmingly anti-Disney and pro-Warner Bros, but they also make it clear that he’s a defensive white male. When news broke that Henry Cavill would no longer be Superman and reports came out that Warner was considering Michael B. Jordan for the role, DVD called it “a fucking disgrace.”

    captain marvel roar
    Carol Danvers roaring at a Skrull who confronts her in ‘Captain Marvel’.
    Matt Miller wrote an article for Esquire in December 2018 calling Overlord and his followers out for being the toxic fandom that’s tried to ruin Star Wars, and it led to a surge in online harassment for Miller.

    Dicktor Van Doomcock might be the foolish king of an internet hate mob, but he’s also so cowardly he won’t even reveal his face. He’s a racist, sexist bigot, and he wears it on his sleeve. The only thing worse than being this guy is spreading his hateful “rumors” as possible legitimate news.

    Overlord is not a journalist, and he clearly does not report the objective truth. He operates with a specific, hateful agenda that a lot of people seem to agree with. He may have over 50,000 subscribers on YouTube, but that doesn’t make him right. It just means he has a large audience, even when he shouldn’t.

    Captain Marvel 2, starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, will probably be released sometime in 2022 or 2023.

    This is all very stupid. First of all, I’m Black and love Brie Larson, AND Captain Marvel. Monica Rambeau (sp?) is Black, so I think that transition may come on its own. In the meantime, Carol Danvers is the vehicle for her. The funny part about all of this is that Brie is soooooo not racist herself, so they should stop trying to bait her. Brie Larson for President 🤔😁

    That’s just silly. This all occurs because non-ethnic characters have dominated exposure for decades. Also, I’m pretty sure there are Latino Superheroes. Though this example is DC, Blue Bettle is a Latino.

    That would be stupid, in comic books the real one is white, I have no problem with the color but we have to be realistic and if we want to bring someone from the comic books we have to stick to them, and not doing what happened with aquaman in the comics he is white and with short hair, so do not try to change the essence of superhero that we all grew up with.

    This is a movie about an intelligent alien life form. One that can shoot concussive plasma death bursts from either (or both) of her hands…. And we are arguing about what her skin looks like?

    This person is a fictional character. She does not exist. She could be green and it would make the exact same amount of sense as it makes now.

    Isn’t using the white blonde female CM first over other versions, like the Monica character, technically serving an agenda? Why not use that version over Carol?

    Why does that mean it should be that way? Placing Monica as secondary to Carol?

    Why can’t a black woman be an example for that? Why can’t a black woman be someone for girls to look up to?

    I think not more tragic than not having the first female CM in Monica Rambeau represented on the big screen as the first female CM.

      3 things:

      2) I’m fine with the current actress

      3) People need to stop with the diversity stuff there is plenty of diversity in these movies

      Before someone comes at me calling me prejudice I’d advice you to back off I may be white but I’m also Puerto Rican, French Canadian & Irish/Scottish, I’m also gay and autistic so I know all to well how it feels to be put down and treated like dirt

    I love how the title says “Women of Color” and no one writes about any race except Black.

    As an American who is of Mexican or First Native American ethnicity (or to you white people “Latino”), these days are filled with nothing but promoting “diversity” and what the true meaning of diversity is is “Black”.

    Please stop using terms like “brown people” or People of color. That is offensive. I am it brown. I am Mexican. Brown belittles. So does “white”.

    I never refer to people as white. I find out their background and refer to them after I know them.

    If you think white people are all the same, than wake up. Sometimes redheads love to see a lead actor or actress because it is rare.

    Do I want a Black Captain Marvel, yes why not, I have no reason not to. Would I rather see an Asian or Mexican woman be Captain Marvel over Black, sadly yes because right now roles for Native Americans and Asians and Middle Eastern and Indians is less than half of Black actors.

    The last point is laughable.

    1. She is extremely unlikable in the role. Her attitude is just very off putting. Sure, some people disagree, but it is fair to say that a strong percentage of people don’t think she plays the role very well.

    2. Whatever your opinions are of her social influencing is, it doesn’t make her great in the role. You can have someone you highly respect in society but they would make a terrible actor. There are also great actors who are terrible people. So whatever she does utilizing her position in society does not make her a great Captain Marvel

    As are ALL women, Brie IS a woman of color (white is a color as well). I don’t understand why so many lately are pressuring studios and Academy Awards to give roles and awards just based on color. this in itself is racist. I enjoy movies and actors of all colors, always have and always will, but rewards should be based not just on color.

    “Fans” i.e, a Minority of of Pop Culture that hasn’t been able to create a good story since — never?

    The characters ethnic representation should not matter, because what is actually being represented are the values the characters demonstrate and create. Will this non-white marvel character be demonstrating antagonisms and vitriol? A display of anger against the world? Then maybe it’s a movie not worth seeing. If you like that stuff, then maybe you share the same values. And I recommend changing your habits and talents to better suit your happiness. I really don’t think this is an avenue towards life. I think it’s a bad habit to be getting into. Good way to eat yourself alive.

    Anyways, this latest movie adaption also displayed such habits. Not just this imagined, potential future representation. Which is why they both create such negativity in people.

    Please stop trying to interject such negative values and calling it justice or to strike vengeance or to make a statement on something that really is kinda meaningless; if you value the soul over race. I will certainly watch a non-white character if they actually promote values that I consider to be good and healthy and perhaps, gasp! Even fun?

    Anyways, love you all. Stop the hate.

    The only reason why Captain Marvel was a success was because it was sandwiched between Infinity War and End Game.

    Captain Marvel was a horrible movie and Brie Larson is a very sexist person. Quite simply, she hates men and particularly white men.

    But there is no way she is giving up her spot because she likes that money. Also, Captain Marvel should be male. That is the way it is written.

    Anybody remember the huge uproar across the nation about Nick Fury (originally a white man) being played by a black actor and not a white one? Me neither. Why then are we always hearing crap about certain groups wanting to change our favorite characters’ gender, color sexual orientation, etc.? If you are so adamant about having a character that is female, transgender, Chinese, or whatever, create your own d*** character and quit changing established character to satisfy your whims! Enough is enough! I personally loved Captain Marvel, especially due to Brie Larson’s performance. The #METOO movement needs to stop invading Hollywood and stick to politics. Oh wait, get out of there too!

    This is ridiculous. Brie – Ms. Nasty – Larson should never have had this role, in the first place. This was THE perfect character to bring a woman of color to the big screen and the MCU – but nooooooooo – we had to have yet another white female lead.
