However, as soon as the clip of Larson's recent interview went viral, fans began defending her and appreciating her for her role as Captain Marvel. Others made it known that they loved the actress as Captain Marvel and would love to see several films with her essaying the character.
Brie Larson likes to keep movie plots a secret from viewers
While talking to Variety on the red carpet, Brie Larson said that it is "kind of fun" to keep secrets. She added that she doesn't want to spoil the experience for people who plan on watching the upcoming film. The actress said:
"Yeah, I dunno, usually I find a way, sometimes I can– on the first one, I'd be like 'You have no idea how many aliens I fought today,' and that would just be my way of being like 'I'm tired.'" But, I dunno, there's something about having a secret that's kinda fun, when it's this, you know what I mean? And it's like delightful, I don't want to ruin the experience for people I want them to go to the theater, it's so much fun."
The Room actress revealed while speaking to Deadline that it was great to work with 20-year-old star Iman Vellani on The Marvels. She added that Vellani is a "really talented, beautiful, special woman" and helped "off-load some of the pressure from Captain Marvel."
She further stated:
"It's great, I mean, I think this is where we need to– we just need more… I know I say that a lot but it’s just like, more, more, more. We need to show different ideas of what it means to be strong, what it means to be flawed, like, what it means to be a superhero.
There's so many different ways to do it, and I think this movie gets to explore that and off-load some of the pressure from Captain Marvel to be this, like, 'Captain Marvel.' It’s like, 'It's okay. There’s a lot of other really talented, beautiful, special women that can also help make this world a better place.'"
