If you went to YouTube at all earlier in the year you probably saw one of the thousands of angry thumbnails claiming that Captain Marvel would destroy the MCU or be some kind of huge bomb. Obviously the movie didn’t destroy the MCU and went on the make more than $1 billion dollars, and it turns out its star didn’t even know about that stuff.
In a new feature in Variety, Brie Larson is asked about the YouTube videos:
There are horrible comics fans who were rooting against it, because it had a woman lead character, and because of your politics. People made YouTube videos about wanting the movie to bomb.
They did? Oh. I didn’t even know.
So while she may be living rent free in the YouTuber’s heads (and there are still videos being made about her); she doesn’t even know they exist.
