Marvel Fans Are Discussing A Controversial “Quote” From Brie Larson

In an era with the internet in the palm of our hands thanks to smart phones, it’s weird to think just how rampant an untrue rumor can spread. Brie Larson has been in the center of one such online urban legend that has been floating around for a while, with fans claiming she said something along the lines of “Captain Marvel wasn’t made for white men.”

The supposed quote has never been able to be sourced by anyone despite the numerous claims it exists. However, one Reddit user shared a video that they thought might have been what started the entire fiasco in the first place as it has a quote that is somewhat similar but has nowhere near the same meaning.

When this was brought up, many fans rallied to support Brie Larson, lamenting how unfairly she has been treated by many who love the MCU.

It’s also worth noting that this so called “quote” could have accidentally came from Larson’s comments on A Wrinkle In Time. She was quoted as saying:

“I don’t need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work about A Wrinkle in Time. It wasn’t made for him! I want to know what it meant to women of color, biracial women, to teen women of color.

Am I saying I hate white dudes? No, I am not. What I am saying is if you make a movie that is a love letter to women of color, there is an insanely low chance a woman of color will have a chance to see your movie, and review your movie.”

So let’s settle it once and for all — Brie Larson never said a quote like that at all. Those who want to see her in action once more as Captain Marvel will need to wait until The Marvels premieres on November 11th, 2022.

    ±I can’t believe I have to repeat my earlier statement. The problem is not with Larson, it is with immature make male children of all ages. Why the hell would anybody. believe these screwed-up man children. They will always be like this, no matter how old they are, its in their DNA to mess with woman. I am 90 plus years old, a man with earned common sense.

  2. Old guysays:

    They want a sexualized hero, boobs, smiling at them in the audience and straight. They are idiots for using this lame rationale to damage a person’s career. How often does Superman smile? Yes, they are powerful in their underwear, hidden under the basement stairs with mom or wife upstairs.

    1. Wesley Gibsonsays:

      The same clowns who whine nonstop about “cancel culture” were the ones trying as hard as they could to destroy Larsen’s career and paint her as a bigot. For some reason it’s not called cancel culture when they do it.

    2. Jakestersays:

      While Bree is a good actress, she hardly makes for a compelling super hero. And to see her fans flip out over a lame joke based on a previous comment of hers says volumes about her.

  3. Old guysays:

    All the women in America should go see the next move and hit the social network with support Bire in particular. Women are the stonger sex as pilots, spycraft, and organized search and capture or destroy the enemy. Who found the spy within the FBI or Ben Laden? It was a team off two for the FBI and a large team (one man) to find Ben Laden. And when 911 happened, two pilots went to stop another plane, no weapons. They agreed to ram the commercial plane front and rear before it stuck it’s intended target. They would have died, but they didn’t second guess their intention. I believe Brie Larson would do the same, as would any trained, professional woman. She is dedicated to her craft, and to her abilities. History is full of women who stood up and did what they had to do. Check this out, Syria, all-female military team.

    1. Jakestersays:

      LOL, can you be a bigger spineless lapdog?

      1. Bambamsays:

        Yeah, he could be named Jakester

    2. Kurt Russellsays:

      ??????????? what are you even on about. No one was anywhere near a plane on September 11 NORAD saw to that do some research. Who is Ben Laden and why was anyone after him. Bin Laden had kideny failure and visited an American Hospital in Dubai the CIA station chief who met Osama in hospital in July 2001 was, reportedly, Larry Mitchell. Again if people were looking for someone they found him and let him go kek research please do it. Women are not better fighter pilots where did that even come from. Check out Syria mainly male lead military sorry bro again where do you come up with this pure shit. As the Syrian Civil War progressed and casualties mounted, more and more positions were opened to women. The National Defense Force allows female volunteers into its ranks, mainly in securing checkpoints. The Republican Guard also formed a female section, an all-female tank battalion of 800 strong, nicknamed “Lionesses of Defense”, fighting within the limits of Damascus. The military is a conscripted force; males serve in the military upon reaching the age of 18, but they are exempted from service if they do not have a brother who can take care of their parents. Males are forced to serve at 18 unless they have someone to take care of their family. But somehow its made up of all women again please do research it’s easy to spout shit.

    Women, rise up go to the female hero movies. I know you are out there. I’ve spoken to many of you face to face. Use the social network to strengthen the march to the theaters. Get you shots, and wear your mask, not for you, for others.

    1. Tamsays:

      Stop telling women what they need to do. They don’t need to reinforce your vision of what they need to be. Let them be themselves. If they want to watch a movie, fine. If they don’t, fine. They don’t need to march to the theaters any more than they need to march in an army. Let women define what they want to be without your meddling. Thanks.

      1. SOme Guysays:

        Stop telling Old guys what they must do. If he wants to be a white knight, or if he wants to fart on his keyboard, is fine. Let Old guys define what he wants to do without your Karenist meddling. Thanks.

  5. Scottsays:

    She may or may not have said that in words, but her actions have definitely said

    1. Wesley Gibsonsays:

      The weasels kept telling this lie over and over, falsely claiming that Larsen said Captain Marvel wasn’t for white males and when they got called out for it they would always move the goalposts and bring up the quote in the article where Brie was talking about the critical response to A Wrinkle In Time.

  6. Jabawoki234says:

    I cannot stand these moronic statements about Ms. Larson. First, I enjoyed Captain Marvel and I was annoyed that she was not in End Game more than she was. Second, she is a fine actor and does an amazing job in everything that she appears. Finally, to all those who claim this false quote as true, either you are sexist, who subscribes to falsehoods, or you are ignorant and willing to further falsehoods to the detriment of others.

  7. And Sara Palin never said “I can see Russia from my house!” It was Tina Fey who said that. No one cared.

    1. Refsays:

      No one cared because Palin said 100 things just as stupid so the parody was accurate. She wasn’t being unfairly maligned or anything, she’s a legit real life moron.

      1. Jakestersays:

        Well Bree made the exact same comment about another movie, ICYMI

      2. Wesley Gibsonsays:


        So you don’t understand the difference between SNL parodying someone vs. a hate mob fabricating fake quotes to try to make someone look like a bigot and destroy her career?

    2. Wesley Gibsonsays:

      “No one cared.”

      Obviously you cared, because you’re still whining about it 13 years later.

  8. Realitysays:

    You all need to grow up and get a life. They’re just movies and overpaid actors for gods sake.

  9. waltersays:

    If you want to see a piece of wood playing a superhero, her movie is for you. She is boring and does noting for the part.

    1. Wesley Gibsonsays:


      U mad.

  10. SuMesays:

    “I don’t need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work about A Wrinkle in Time. She really did not have to say 40 year old white dude,she could of said i don t need anybody,so it is an attack on white males.
