Brie Larson is said to look too much like a skinny supermodel than a superhero, and it’s claimed that The Marvels, aka Captain Marvel 2, is as silly as James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which follows the super silly movie from Taika Waititi with Thor: Love and Thunder.
Jame Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy was nothing like the comic books (think Empire Strikes Back) which saw Gunn make buffoons out of the characters including that awful “Dance off, bro” moment at the end of the movie. Likewise, Thor: Love and Thunder bastardizes the concept of Thor and comes off much more goofy and silly than anything Gunn did and is downright insulting and just plain stupid.
Regarding The Marvels being silly, which follows that post-credit scene featuring Brie Larson in The Marvels (more on that below), in her box office report about how the Thor: Love and Thunder box office is more bad news for the MCU, popular YouTuber Grace Randolph says she heard The Marvels is just as silly as Guardians of the Galaxy:
“I’d also like to add there are non-Marvel superhero stories out there right now that are blowing our socks off. We got The Boys, The Batman, which are more serious and adult as Marvel gets more silly and family focused. I just heard something about The Marvels which was so silly that I was shocked it wasn’t in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I was like, ‘What’s that doing in The Marvels?’
I mean, I think that some movies should be silly and are very succesfully silly but I don’t think they should all be silly. Some people felt Thor: Love and Thunder was too silly. So… I don’t know, man. I mean, it’s hard to eat vanilla all the time no matter how good it is, no matter how many great specs of vanilla bean are in it, you don’t want to eat vanilla every week and that’s how much they’re serving it these days…
I like Thor: Love and Thunder from a fan perspective but business-wise and from a filmmaking perspective – oh, yeah – it’s got major problems. I want the four hour cut but Taika Waitit says ‘he will never deliver it,’ but then why did he film it? Is he like, ‘Yeah, I just wasted a lot of money filming additional two hours of content and hiring talent that I didn’t use.’ I mean I don’t think that’s the support of Disney that he thinks it is.”

Ms. Marvel ending a mess and Brie Larson’s new Captain Marvel look might not work
Grace also didn’t like the end of Ms. Marvel where it was revealed Kamala Khan is the MCU’s first mutant, and Grace also wasn’t happy with the Brie Larson post-credit scene where she thinks Brie Larson looks too skinny for the role of Captain Marvel as Brie Larson comes off looking more like an ultra-thin supermodel than a superhero (Marvel.com officially lists Carol Danvers as weighing 165 lbs.).
“Totally messes up the X-Men but that’s okay,” Randolph laughs about the Ms. Marvel reveal. “The first X-Men are very specific! … Yeah, what about the Ten Rings, is she just related to every group? Also, it doesn’t make any sense, is Kamran a mutant, then? Either she’s a mutant or she’s from this other dimension. So it just doesn’t make any sense to me.”
Regarding Brie Larson, Randolph says she doesn’t think the new look will work for her:
“[Gasps ]Wow! What is happening? Boy, Captain Marvel looks very different. The ending of that show was a mess. I think Brie Larson looks pretty good. She looks more like she’s just hanging out than she’s a superhero,” said Randolph about the Ms. Marvel post-credit scene. “They got rid of the short hair. I don’t know. I actually did not like the ending. [laughs] I was like, ‘It’s all over the place, man.’ But I don’t know. I think I’m a little disappointed that I think Brie Larson looks more super-modelly than super-heroey, and I feel like, I don’t know if that’s gonna work for her, either. So, we’ll see.”
