Actress Brie Larson briefly acknowledged the fan backlash against her role as Captain Marvel in the MCU during her past of woke activism.
During an interview at the D23 Expo on Saturday, the Oscar-winning actress struggled to answer when asked how long she would be playing Captain Marvel.
“How Long Will You Be Playing Captain Marvel?” the Variety asked the reporter.
Larson, visibly agitated, replied, “I don’t know. I do not know. Does anyone want me to do it again?

Larson suffered a huge backlash from fans after the release of Captain Marvel due to her relentless woke activism and sometimes militant feminism, such as when she berated her classmate avengers co-starred during an interview when he compared his stunt work to Tom Cruise. This video best illustrates the controversy:
Brie Larson may have reached her nadir in 2018 when she seemed to suggest that white men didn’t have to criticize films directed by a black woman.
“Am I saying I hate white guys? No, I’m not,” she said during her Crystal Award for Excellence in Film acceptance speech at the Crystal + Lucy Awards. “I don’t want to hear what a white man has to say about ‘A Wrinkle in Time.’ I want to hear what a woman of color, a biracial woman has to say about the film. I want to hear what teenagers think of the film.
“If you’re making a movie that’s a love letter to women of color, there’s a chance a woman of color won’t have access to review and critique your movie,” she added. “Don’t say the talent isn’t there, because it is.”
To be fair to Larson, she finally quieted her political activism after March 2021 when she signed an open letter from GLAAD chastising women and feminists for refusing to accept the transgender agenda. Since then, she’s remained largely apolitical and didn’t even make a public statement when the Supreme Court struck down Roe vs. Wade.
