The Captain Marvel Premiere Photos Are Everything

I'm crying?

With the UK premiere of Captain Marvel having come and gone, one thing is very clear: This cast knows the importance of this film and is proud to be a part of it. When the stars took to the red carpet, we could see the diversity within the film, how much the cast loved each other and, maybe the most importantly part of all, we could see how many kids were excited to see Captain Marvel.

This movie is so much more than what the men of the internet are making it out to be. They’re turning it into an attack on them, as if something they love is being taken away from them. All that is happening is that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is growing and shifting into something that is inclusive. If that terrifies you, then you have bigger problems than Carol Danvers.

But what’s important to note is that this movie isn’t just for those of us who love the MCU. It’s bigger than that.

Also, this is one of the most diverse casts in the MCU. Even with big group pictures like Avengers: Infinity War, there is still a primarily white cast. Captain Marvel is changing that and this is what our casts should be, this is what we should strive for.

On top of that, the cast of the movie is doing an incredible job of sharing this story for the next generation of girls and boys. They’re showing us all that this movie, while exciting, is to help kids see that they can be the hero too.

And it helps that they all love each other.

At the end of the day though, this is Brie Larson as our hero, and no one says it better than the Captain herself.

Because look, Captain Marvel isn’t for the adults who are going to watch it. Sure, we’re hyped up and can’t wait to see what Carol Danvers has in store for us, but we’re also sharing this movie with little kids who are going to look at Captain Marvel and want to be just like her, and that’s what is most important.
