‘The Marvels’ trailer become the most disliked video | The Express Tribune
The Marvels, an upcoming all-female superhero squad film, has unfortunately become the latest target of review-bombing, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. The trailer for The Marvels, which dropped earlier this week, has quickly become the most disliked trailer from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) on YouTube already, amassing 409,000 dislikes in just two days.
The comments section was full of hateful remarks and medieval thinking, with one YouTuber calling it “Captain Feminist and the Patriarchy’s Stone.” Others simply referred to it as “a piece of crap,” with some criticising Marvel’s supposed agenda to depict women as equal members of society.
Comparing The Marvels to Morbius, another superhero film that received negative feedback, The Marvels had 409,000 dislikes in two days, while Morbius only had 11,000 dislikes since its trailer was posted a year ago. Unfortunately, this is nothing new in the entertainment industry. The Little Mermaid was hit with a racist campaign as the lead actor in the remake is Black, and Marvel Studios’ female-led TV shows Ms Marvel and She-Hulk have also been targeted by misogynists.
The Marvels boasts an all-female lineup, with Brie Larson returning as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Teyonah Parris playing Monica Rambeau, and Iman Vellani portraying Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel. Larson has been the target of sexist comments from fans before, but she refuses to let that deter her from portraying female superhero characters.
Larson, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, spoke about how inspiring Ms. Marvel was for her. “A huge part of why I wanted to play Captain Marvel was because of Ms.Marvel and what that meant.” She also described her co-star Vellani as the “future superhero little girls need, one with brown skin and is Muslim.”
The Marvels is set to be released in cinemas on November 10, and Larson encourages people to watch it and not let hate win. Despite the negativity surrounding the film, she said the show provides “representation for young girls who may see a future where they can grow up to be anything they want.”
