Yeah, those complaints about Brie Larson not smiling enough in the first trailer look even dumber in retrospect. Which I didn’t think would ever be possible, but here we are.The complainers had me go in with the wrong impression of Carol entirely. I knew she was better than they said, but the way they described her made me think she was stoic and serious. Which is not at all the case! It’s like they have no idea how to read women- or just chose not to.
It makes me realize just how much of the Fury and Danvers interactions flew right past their heads.I know, right? She's a thoroughly fun-loving person the whole way through.
They were mostly going off the trailers, I think. Those did market the feminism very heavily - enough that I wonder if it was done deliberately to up the surprise factor when the other big political message hit.I'm honestly puzzled if they genuinely feel more threatened by feminism or if they actually learned that openly showing their racism is not really tolerable..
