Brie Larson Clarifies Her Controversial Comments On ‘Captain Marvel’ Press Diversity

Marvel Studios Captain Marvel Brie Larson Avengers: EndgameBrie Larson has clarified her controversial comments, that had insecure men around the world outraged, during the Captain Marvel press tour.

Brie Larson recently stated her desire to diversify the Captain Marvel press tour with more people of color and women, causing men around the world to take her statement extremely out of context and become giant man-babies about it. While the actress didn’t have to clarify anything about her comments, being the class act that she is, she simply restated her desires for the press run:

What I’m looking for is to bring more seats up to the table. No one is getting their chair taken away. There’s not less seats at the table, there’s just more seats at the table.”

Brie Larson looks to have a hit on her hands with Captain Marvel as early reviews have labeled it great. This should make the Captain Marvel star put on her hate-deflecting shades and bask in the sunlight of her success. I look forward to seeing Brie Larson put her words into action with more seats at the Captain Marvel table and I’m excited for the possibilities that lay ahead for people of color and female journalists.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.

    More power to her!

    Going to watch it

    Good luck Captain. As someone who is not exactly a big fan of the character, I got a good feeling that this film will change my outlook on her in the future.

    Go see Alita instead

  • Maxi Iroh

    There can only be so many tables.

    First sentence: “insecure men”. What exactly is wrong with you people? Where is your journalistic integrity? Is there no such thing as objective journalism anymore? If she had disparaged any other demographic, she would have been rightly taken to task for it. White men don’t like to be villified for their race and gender any more than anyone else does. It isn’t about being insecure. It’s about being offended by racist and sexist comments, and anyone is allowed to express a negative reaction when targeted in such instances, even, yes, white males.

    • Maddy The News Chick

      The only objective reporting are small indie reporters who are tired of the political leanings in news stories.
      These people have no integrity.

  • Alexander Gayoso Ramos

    Giant man-babies and insecure men? So anyone who disagrees with someone who has a strong liberal leaning background is automatically wrong and called derogatory names. Wow,how enlightened you must feel.

    Tell me Nathaniel, if Brie Larson can demonstrate class in her response. Then why can’t you? I mean what kind of journalism did you learn where you let your own opinions become so low class that you are resorting to name calling.

    Your a joke as a writer,and the fact that you are a lead editor is an even bigger joke. What a pathetic waste.

  • Unbound

    I like her a lot and I’m really looking forward to this film but I do think she chose her initial words poorly. I understand her overall point and agree with it but some of what she has said did come off sounding more like an attack on a specific group of people (i.e. white men) than a desire to welcome in more diverse groups to the discussion.

  • BLACKGODDESS

    Don’t see anything wrong with what she said. People need to grow up. America is diverse and their is nothing wrong with showing that in superhero films. smh

  • Vadé Hanson

    Relax! It’s all entertainment. It’s not like she’s running for president one day…😅

    Isn’t this the first sign of Spring? When all the snowflakes start melting….
