It’s sad that an article like this even needs to be written, but with the state of the Internet in 2019 and everyone believing every Mysterio out there posting complete BS, it’s come to this.
Yesterday, Variety ran an article as part of their feature on Brie Larson where they asked her about the possibility of an all-female “A-Force” Marvel movie, which is something that her co-stars such as Karen Gillen, Evangeline Lilly, Letitia Wright, and Tessa Thompson have all supported in the past:
“I will say that a lot of the female cast members from Marvel walked up to Kevin and we were like, ‘We are in this together, we want to do this,’” Larson explained. “What that means, I have no idea. You know, I’m not in charge of the future of Marvel, but it is something that we’re really passionate about and we love and I feel like if enough people out in the world talk about how much they want it, maybe it’ll happen.”
Right there in the actual quote from the article she says she doesn’t run Marvel and has no say if they were to do it or not. But of course the Internet has some bizarre hate-boner for Brie, so clickbait sites and YouTube videos are intentionally mis-quoting her to claim she’s tying up Kevin Feige and forcing him to make an A-Force movie at gunpoint.
Much like Brie’s comments last year about allowing more journalists in the press tour for Captain Marvel (which sparked and endless stream of YouTube hate and threats towards her), intentionally mis-quoting her in this is just fueling those people she doesn’t even pay attention to.
Could Marvel do an A-Force movie? Well at one point there was a concept for something similar that was destined for ABC, but there haven’t been any legitimate rumors of Marvel studios tackling something like that. And despite what the Internet is trying to tell you, Brie Larson isn’t trying to force Marvel into making it either.
