I had a scary thought.
Brie Larson (who I truly cannot care any less about) was mouthing off about identity politics again. This didn't change my mind about seeing "Captain Marvel" because I wasn't going to see it anyway. The trailer told me immediately it was going to be a feminist lecture. A 20 something actress digging a deeper hole instead of just shutting up is only going to make other people not want to see it.
But now I'm worried it's going to ruin Endgame. Not that I hold the Avenger's franchise in as high regards as John Wick, but I loved Infinity War. I was truly looking forward to its conclusion, Endgame. I do not want it ruined or even infected with politics. But if the main actress of Captain Marvel is going to keep doubling down on politics, or even just talking about politics, AND this tag-along super hero is supposedly going to rescue The Avengers, then you're blemishing what I thought was a perfect movie and it is going to deter some of the movie going public to see Endgame.
Which is tragic.
Because Captain Marvel was just supposed to be an origins movie introducing a necessary character to finish off the magnum opus of End Game. It may simply infect the franchise right before the big payoff is due and really cost the studio some money.
Eh, I'll wait for the reviews to come in first.
