Morons of Fandom: The anti Captain Marvel crowd

Captain Marvel is the next film from Marvel’s sausage factory of film production starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel which is out in a few weeks. It will make Marvel/Disney gazillions and looks to be as much fun as your average Marvel film.

In terms of a character in the comics, Carol Danvers has, well, a complex history which I’ll skim over as it’s’ distracting, often horrible and anyhow, the writer Chris Claremont redeemed her by making her one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe way back in Uncanny X Men #164 and now she’s one of Marvel’s main characters with Thor, Spidey, Iron Man or the Hulk.

But there’s a big film coming out and it FEATURES A WOMAN! So the Comicsgate crowd peels themselves like one vast interconnected slug to try to sabotage the film by throwing up fake negative reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, which they tried with Black Panther last year. As a reminder Black Panther was one of the best films of 2018, made several gazillions and was nominated for actual awards in the Oscars outwith of the usual things like special effects. So that shows you how dim these folk are as the tactic which didn’t work last year, won’t this year, and will probably be done again when a superhero film not starring a white male is released.

Now I won’t link to videos or pages spouting this pish as after all, it’s easily done but there’s only one reason this is being done and that’s good old-fashioned sexism of the kind designed to keep women in their place away from billion dollar film franchises unless they fulfil whatever arbitrary set of rules they pull out their arse. It is intolerable  that women have to put up with this shit all the time, and one has to think the men doing this would be be spending a better life  if they actually spoke to women instead of hating them.

But that’s too hard it seems.
