Marvel’s upcoming superheroine film, Captain Marvel, continues to show up in news feeds for all the wrong reasons. It’s stars haven’t helped it out either. Actress Brie Larson nonchalantly said ”there were too many white men in press junkets” and Samuel L. Jackson recently called the polarizing President Trump, ”a plantation owner.”
Not good considering more than half of the audience that would have gone to support this film are conservative white men.
Enter Actor James Woods. An unapologetic and outspoken right-winger. Woods tweeted this:
And then this:
Instead of trying to put one thing down to bring awareness to something, the cast of Captain Marvel should try and lift everything up. Or at least choose their words wisely.
Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.
Captain Marvel will be released in theaters on March 8, 2019.
