them: are you okay?
me: some people like to say Brie Larson's portrayal of Carol Danvers is "wooden" or lifeless and I have to laugh. Have you seen Captain America or Thor or Iron Man or the Incredible Hulk or any DCEU movie? Nothing against the actors in those roles, but Brie Larson's performance was subtle and powerful in a way that other Larger Than Life performances usually aren't. I felt more in the opening shot of Captain Marvel than I did for the entirety of most other MCU or DCEU entries. There's one reason and one reason only that people are so hypercritical and it's the same reason they were hypercritical of Daisy Ridley as Rey or Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman or Jodie Whittaker as the newest star of Doctor Who
