Variety Thinks ‘Captain Marvel’ Is The First Successful Female SuperHero Movie. I WONDER Who They Forgot…

The “feminist” film that is Captain Marvel has been talked up as a SOCIAL JUSTICE MASTERPIECE for months now.

Namely by Brie Larson, the star of the film.

…and liberal media outlets are EATING IT UP.


In fact…

According to Variety:

Disney’s “Captain Marvel” finally settled the score on one of Hollywood’s biggest misconceptions: Female superheroes can hold their own at the box office.

That’s the big takeaway from the opening weekend of “Captain Marvel,” the studio’s first comic-book movie to put the spotlight on a female heroine. “Captain Marvel” — starring Brie Larson — debuted with a mighty $455 million globally, the sixth best start for a movie of all time. Larson’s Carol Danvers is in rarefied company among her Spandexed cohorts: “Captain Marvel” ranks as the second-biggest launch for a superhero movie worldwide, behind “Avengers: Infinity War.”

“‘Captain Marvel’ shuts the door on that conversation. It slams the door, in fact,” said Jeff Bock, a box office analyst with Exhibitor Relations. “Female superhero films of the past like ‘Catwoman’ and ‘Elektra’ were bad films — that’s all we have to say about them. You look at ‘Wonder Woman’ and ‘Captain Marvel,’ they are good films put together by strong creative teams. That’s the difference.”


I thought this WAS settled?


Actually – they address that:

“Captain Marvel” also topped the results for “Wonder Woman,” the superhero movie that should have ended any prejudices about female heroes’ box office clout for good. In 2017, “Wonder Woman” paved the way, hinting to Hollywood that (shocker!) audiences will still turn out for a movie centered on a female protagonist. DC’s first female-led superhero film — starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins — launched with $103 million at the domestic box office.


So Wonder Woman only “paved the way”? Really?

Yeah. See – I know what’s going on here. Gal Gadot didn’t trot around calling her movie a FEMINIST EXTRAVAGANZA – so they’re not going to treat it like one.

Brie Larson, on the other hand, has made her ENTIRE media presence around this film ABOUT “feminism” and ONLY “feminism” …so she gets ALL the points.

It’s all such a sham.
