More from Captain Marvel...

Bounding Into Comics“I understand film history. I know that the film industry started with majority women. It started with women filmmakers. So, this weird idea that women maybe can’t open movies, or not important to storytelling, or the female story is not high art is bogus. I don’t want for a second buy into it. I’m very grateful to help break this glass ceiling of normalizing the concept that women can also make a billion dollars because I don’t know why that was so hard to comprehend in the first place. It just seems like were humans.”

I'd like to know who was telling Brie all this crap about woman in the movies, because I haven't seen any of it. I've seen a lot of people complaining about her movie, specifically, and the ideological fellow-travelers like the failed 2016 Fartbusters all-female reboot.

Also, "the female story"? There is no "the" female story. Unless Brie thinks "the female story" involves a Patriarchy holding down the female with superpowered limiting devices and breaking those limits will magically allow her to succeed?

There are lots of human stories. Some of them, but not anywhere near all of them, are only applicable to females. Certainly, a lot more than just one.

“I started noticing because the press days are actually for me the time when I get to talk about the movie, I don’t talk about it any other time. And I make things so they spark discussions. I don’t make them so people can be like ‘WOW! Look at your face!’ It’s like I don’t care I wish my face couldn’t be on the screen. I do it because of the content and because I want to see what it stirs in you. And because my opportunity to do that is with the press, I started noticing I was only getting select groups of people. And I was curious what it would be like to have a more intersectional diverse conversation.”

But she wants us to know that she doesn't hate white men, even though she isn't making movies for white men and doesn't want white men to review her movies.

Well, OK. I won't. Problem solved.
