Star Wars: The Last Jedi Director Throws Shade At Captain Marvel Haters


Captain Marvel is currently sitting on an 81% positive rating on the Tomatometer, but with a mere 35% approval rating from audiences. This isn’t a reflection on the film’s quality, though. Rather, it’s because the movie has become the latest battleground in a rabid culture war against feminism and SJWs.

It’s all faintly depressing stuff, with terminally online young men taking to their keyboards to protest star Brie Larson saying a couple of very milquetoast feminist comments in promotional interviews. The aim is to ruin the film’s box office prospects, presumably with the aim of reversing the feminization of culture or whatever garbage they’re currently obsessed with.

Anyhow, Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson knows a lot about hate campaigns, with his excellent installment in the franchise considered by some of the more mouth-breathing corners of the internet to be up there with the all time greatest crimes against humanity. Despite The Last Jedi having been received extremely positively by critics and receiving a 91% positive rating, its audience score is just 44%, which is almost exactly what’s happening to Captain Marvel.

With that in mind, Johnson took to Twitter to say that Captain Marvel‘s audience score having been manipulated is “pretty much the new “Certified Fresh” badge.”

The most ironic thing about all this is that the column inches generated by this misogynist campaign against the movie has been just about the best marketing campaign Disney could ask for. With the film landing on International Women’s Day, many claim that they see it as their duty to go and watch Captain Marvel – if only to prove the basement dwelling chuds wrong by making the film a success. You can’t buy this kind of publicity, and Disney will be laughing all the way to the bank as they cement themselves as a woke corporation.

So, everyone wins! Well, except the angry misogynists trapped in their own poisonous minds. Sucks to be them, eh?
