    reasons why you should NOT watch “Captain Marvel”
    - Rather than telling an intriguing story about a hero’s struggles, “Captain Marvel” will slam “feminism” everywhere in the movie
    - Brie Larson thinks she is the first EVER female hero that’s a role model for young girls (it seems that young boys can’t relate to female heros, or females in general), apparently Wonder Woman, Princess Leia, and half of the Disney princesses didn’t exist
    - Rather than actually trusting a female director to helm the film, marvel studios and Kevin Feige had to assign her a male co-director (and they keep talking about equality)
    - Brie Larson started a go fund me page urging people to donate money to help poor girls, not including boys, to go watch HER movie. Rather than setting a go fund me page to help get girls education, shelter, and other necessary things they might need since they can’t afford to go to the movies.
    - “HER”O (self explanatory unless you’re as thick minded as Brie Larson)
    - Prior to the movies release, the “want to see” score on rotten tomatoes was 28% only, marvel had the guts to tell RT to remove that, AND THEY DID (it’s treason then)
    - The weekend of March (8th), opening night, Marvel booked all of the screens for Captain Marvel, to a point where you can’t watch any other movie that weekend, toxic much?
