You hear it all the time. “Why isn’t the superhero smiling in this trailer?” Actually, you never hear that, unless the superhero is female. No one cared that Stephen Strange failed to show off his pearly whites in Doctor Strange trailers, but apparently, Brie Larson was supposed to in the Captain Marvel trailer.
Larson is not amused, though her response to this sexist criticism is amusing. The MCU’s newest captain highlighted just how ludicrous this knock on the Captain Marvel trailer is by modifying a few other Marvel one-sheets in her Instagram story.
Well done, Captain.
Captain Marvel is in theaters March 8, 2019.
