She probably has a small role anyways but I think the omission was due to contract and negotiations

Just watch people bicker that her role is very small when the movie comes out

And after several hours of internet backlash, Marvel has updated the poster.

good.

there was no reason why her name was omitted from the top. glad people spoke out and very glad marvel fixed it. the fact they allowed it to happen from the start is messed up though.

Is it just me, or is the root of the Captain Marvel/Brie Larson hate seem to come from the character not being "sexy" enough?

I mean, I've heard zero complaints of ScarJo wearing form-fitting spandex, wearing makeup, or being constantly sexualised. Not even heard a peep about Wanda Maximoff and her corset costume, or even green Gamora.

Literally the only female character that's been getting the hate is the one who isn't wearing form-fitting clothes or presenting hyper-feminine attributes. The costume isn't flattering to her backside? Get the hell over it. Doesn't smile enough? Doesn't need to. Not wearing makeup? She's a galactic soldier. Wearing 'too much' makeup now? Never heard anyone complain about Wanda's ever-present 'smoky-eye' makeup.

A lot of this hate, from a certain type of person, just translates to me as "I don't find Captain Marvel fuck-able, so what's the point?"

I think it's part of it, yeah.

Especially since Larson was vocal about how, if the original Ms Marvel swimsuit costume was going to be in the movie, it would have been a hard "no" from her. It ended up working out because Feige didn't want the swimsuit costume either.

I don't trust a damn thing I see in the trailers now. I just realized that as I wondered what could happen and what things were watching it, I just kept catching myself thinking "Yeah but this probably isn't like that in the final movie" Especially the VFX stuff. But really the all in same suit slow mo assembling walk scene, that makes me question it's reality a little.

That scene might have different roster in the movie, but I do believe Nebula and Stark will be in it. Let's face it, they won't keep Iron Man apart of the group for a majority of the movie.

I'm kind of mixed on the design of Ms. Marvel vs Captain C.D. Marvel. Honestly I think both suck, but I couldn't really pinpoint really why.

My first exposure to a Carol story was Civil War II. So it's taken me a long time to begin to come round to her.

I never heard any of that. The complaints I heard was that Larson isn't a good actress or is very wooden and unemotional. I think we can all agree that the Ms Marvel costumes would be awkward and hard to pull of IRL.

From what I remember of Carol, she is much more emotional and quick tempered. Not to the point that she is an idiot mind you.

I still think her EMH version is the best one used and should have been a blue print for the movie version

The “She’s a bad actress” defense is particularly head scratching. She’s an Academy Award and Golden Globe winning actress, at least give her the benefit of the doubt when it comes to her ability to act lol

I wouldn't use awards for a metric for acting talent. And I have seen her in other works. I am less than impressed

I would, those awards are meant to acknowledge the abilities of those nominated. Obviously the acknowledgment and acclaim she’s gotten for that, and other roles, show’s that she has gifts when it comes to acting.

🙄 It’s a pretty damn good judge when it comes to her skill set. Like I said, obviously the acknowledgment and acclaim she’s gotten for that, and other roles, show’s that she has gifts when it comes to acting.

You’re not impressed but some people would say the same damn thing about actors that do impress you. Doesn’t change the fact that she is one of the people who have been awarded for their performances. By your reasoning no award ever means anything.

Then she didn't bring her A game then, considering even people who liked the movie stated that the weakest part was Carol herself.

🙄 So every person said she was the weak link? Or are you just acknowledging those who said that and ignoring the ones who thought she was outstanding? Did you count both sides? Do a head count?

You’re speaking so broadly, I think these are legitimate questions.
