“Superhero Drama Alert! 😲 Samuel L. Jackson Leaps to the Defense of Brie Larson Against the Captain Marvel Haters 🦸♀️🛡️”
TL;DR; Samuel L. Jackson, well-known as Nick Fury in the MCU, comes out in full support for his co-star, Brie Larson aka Captain Marvel, against online trolls and self-proclaimed “incel dudes.” Jackson lauds Larson’s unapologetic feminism and determination, while teasing his longing to be in Wakanda! 🌍
In the epic universe of superheroes and power-packed drama, things are heating up off-screen! The badass eyepatch-wearing Samuel L. Jackson, whom we all know as Nick Fury from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), came out swinging 🥊 for his co-star, Brie Larson. You know, the Captain Marvel lady who’s been a magnet for haters on the internet.
Seems like our boy Jackson had to trade in his eyepatch for a knight’s shield as he jumps to Larson’s defense. In a Rolling Stone interview, he said, “Brie’s a stronger person than people give her credit for.” Ain’t that the truth, Fury? 👏
One must wonder, though, why is the internet so upset about a female superhero? Is it because Larson isn’t afraid to call herself a feminist and speak her mind? 🤔 Does that really get people’s spandex in a twist?
These so-called “incel dudes” (Jackson’s words, not ours) appear to have some issues with Larson’s feminism. Maybe it’s too shiny? Too dazzling? Too…threatening? Jackson said it best: “She is who she is, and she’s genuinely that.” So maybe it’s time for the haters to put on some sunglasses and deal with it, huh? 😎
The friendship saga between Jackson and Larson started with the 2017 King Kong flick, “Kong: Skull Island.” According to Jackson, the experience wasn’t “the most wonderful” for either of them. From surviving monstrous apes to internet trolls, this duo has truly seen it all. 🦍💥
Jackson even shared how their friendship deepened while working on Larson’s movie, ‘Unicorn Store.’ He recounted a heartwarming story about Larson’s anxiety over inviting him to work on her movie. Fast-forward, and here they are, defending each other from Internet’s supervillains. Adorable, right? 🦄💗
The bond continued to strengthen through political events, with Jackson acting as a pillar of support when Donald Trump won the election. He then cheered her on when she bagged the role of Captain Marvel, encouraging her to join the MCU. Now that’s what we call a true superhero friend! 🙌
And guess what? Our favorite MCU buddies are teaming up again in the upcoming film “The Marvels,” directed by Nia DaCosta. Here, Larson’s Carol Danvers will join forces with Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan. Sounds like a party, doesn’t it? 🥳
Still, Jackson’s not all superhero business; he’s got his own questions, like, why his Nick Fury hasn’t yet set foot in Wakanda? “I’m still trying to figure out why I’ve never been to Wakanda,” he mused. Can we get this man a passport to Wakanda, please? ✈️🐾
All this said, why do you think some people have such a hard time accepting a strong, feminist superhero like Captain Marvel? Shouldn’t we be celebrating diverse representation instead of debating it? Let’s discuss! 🎉
