Captain Marvel is one of the strongest MCU superheroes. Brie Larson is the actress who plays the role of Captain Marvel. But it seems like some of the fans are not happy with the actress playing the role of Captain Marvel.
These fans are even letting their dissatisfaction to be heard by Marvel Studios loud and clear. A new petition has been released, demanding Marvel Studios to fire Brie Larson as Captain Marvel and replace her with someone else.
Someone named Spike Valentine posted the petition. The petition has been named as “Demand Captain Marvel is Played By a Woman of Color, Not Brie Larson!”
The full petition reads like, “We need Brie Larson to step down from her role to prove she is an ally of social justice and ensure a gay woman of color plays the role. Let Monica, the original female & BLACK Captain Marvel instead of white-washing characters for the benefit of the straight, white men running Disney. She hasn’t donated money to any charity other than The Motion Picture and Television Fund Foundation (https://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/brie-larson) and it’s time for her to show she is not all talk.”
Currently, the petition has 12,000 signatures (as of writing) and is nearing its current goal of 13,000 signers.
