I am starting to like her.
I hope more people will support her and say something like that.
Agreed. She's 100% correct.

So, when is the Dalai Lama biopic starring her as the Lama himself coming out?

am I the only one who think this issue contradicts each other?

when I first read her statement, I thought she WAS going 'woke' or 'npc'...not fighting against them. that's typically the type of thing they state.

I personally thought she left the building when she mentioned she should be able to play a tree.

I think that’s just a meme.... never seen her saying she wanted to play a tree.

She has since apologized for any misunderstandings, and has tried to justify her previous stances. Other than that though, ...

Disgusting.

I will no longer be viewing any media with or about her.

I don't want to give her anymore attention.

I am sure Scarlett Johansson is just crushed some Woke SJW won't watch her stuff anymore

Why shouldn't she be able to play whoever she wants?

She should be. She's an actor. As an actor you're pretending to be someone, something. And if you don't want to watch it you don't have to. Vote with your dollars.

The liberal agenda needs to get away from the arts.

I am sure she will be devastated by your decision.
HINT: no-one gives a hoot.

She is an actor, she can play whoever she wants. That's what actors do. If some crazy people are frothing at the their mouth because an actress plays someone - it is their issue. If they are so wonderful, brave, stunning and talented they surely won't have any problem to make their own successful movies, with whoever they want, right?

Or as a typical left, you want everything to be done for you, instead of doing it yourself?

I don't see how anyone could disagree with Johansson. Movies are big business and big names are required to ensure big profits.

"I wasn’t a huge superhero movie fan before starting to work [at Marvel], but now that I’m doing it, there’s just so much opportunity to make big, positive statements"

"I would like to see alternatives to violence in superhero movies. Maybe I would qualify that by saying, alternatives to glamorizing guns and weaponry. That’s one of the reasons that I love Captain Marvel — it’s all about inner power. And the destruction is not at the expense of human life."


She does realize she's doing a movie about an assassin, right?

even the article that bleedingfool sources from is cringe worthy too

The wokeness finally reached marvel movies.

I'm done with that franchise. it was the last batch of movies I could REALLY enjoy, that felt like movies felt BEFORE all this SJW crap began. And I'm a DC fan who knew nothing about Marvel.

now nothing is really left untouched.

I'm going to point out here that while I don't think any humans died in Captain Marvel, Carol and her allies are indeed killing Kree, who would be indistinguishable from human beings if a few of them weren't blue. It's also worth noting that she knew them and thought she was one of them for six years, yet she's yelling in excitement as she's killing them. So while her statement about "the destruction is not at the expense of human life" is technically correct, it might as well not be.

I think one of the reasons Battle Angel Alita got some backlash here and there was the fact that they focused on actually making the best movie they could and adapting the original material without forcing a girl power message or some other political agenda in there.
