According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming all-female superhero squad film The Marvels is the latest victim of a review bombing. Already, in just two days after its release earlier this week, the trailer for The Marvels has amassed 409,000 dislikes on YouTube, making it the most disliked video from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
One YouTuber even referred to it as “Captain Feminist and the Patriarchy’s Stone” in the midst of the vitriolic and anachronistic discourse that plagued the video’s comment area. Some people called it “a piece of crap,” criticizing what they saw as Marvel’s desire to portray women as equal members of society.
The Marvels, a superhero film, earned 409,000 dislikes in two days, but the trailer for Morbius, another superhero film that received unfavorable reviews, only received 11,000 dislikes since it was posted a year ago.
This is unfortunately par for the course in the entertainment business. Marvel Studios’ female-led TV shows Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk have also been targeted by misogynists, while The Little Mermaid was subjected to a racist campaign because the lead actor in the remake is Black.
Brie Larson reprises her role as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Teyonah Parris takes on the role of Monica Rambeau, and Iman Vellani takes on the role of Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel in The Marvels. Larson has faced sexism from fans before, but that hasn’t stopped her from playing strong female roles in the superhero genre.
Larson told Entertainment Weekly how much she related to Ms. Marvel in an interview. “Ms.Marvel and what that meant were huge factors in my decision to play Captain Marvel.” As for her co-star Vellani, she said that she was the “future superhero little girls need, one with brown skin and are Muslim.”

Larson suggests people see The Marvels when the film hits theaters on November 10 in order to defeat bigotry. She still defended the film, saying it gives “representation for young girls who may see a future where they can grow up to be anything they want.”
The trailer for The Marvels, an all-female superhero squad film, has been review bombed on YouTube with 409,000 dislikes in just two days, marking it as the most disliked video from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident, as female-led Marvel TV shows and The Little Mermaid remake with a Black lead actor have also faced targeted campaigns. Brie Larson, who reprises her role as Captain Marvel, encourages fans to see The Marvels for its representation of strong female characters.
