I think many of the people attacking Larson and the movie ended up believing that they have way more power and influence that they actually do because of the Last Jedi situation. That movie was divisive among fans (I personally hated it) because of Rian Johnson's many controversial writing decisions and these people wrongly thought that their own agenda was being vindicated and adopted by the general population. So when Captain Marvel comes out and makes a ton of money because people very much enjoyed the movie, it shows that very few people actually pay attention to them.
They'll take it a mile if you give people enough of an inch. It feels like only yesterday I used to see a bunch of "Spider-Man Homecoming is an SJW movie" with clickbait thumbnails in my recommended feeds because... I guess they had a diverse cast in a high school setting movie? Feels like we're gonna hear about Captain Marvel for a longer while though because they've been emboldened by some of the bigger YT critics.
Extrapolating from the Friday estimate. e.g Deadline had the following estimate going into the weekend; a $19M Friday resulting in a $69.7M (-55%) 3 day weekend. The "official" Friday estimate came in at $19.3M so slightly better than Deadline's indicating that the 3 day drop looks about right.
They’ll claim everyone gets a billion now so it’s no big deal. I’ve learned is these people will never admit they’re wrong.
Also it’s not even only men. I’ve seen women make videos against Captain Marvel. So weird how loud people can be against something and not even make a dent. Carol who’s generally unknown to most is likely to get a billy in her origin movie with no Iron Man, Cap, Thor or Hulk.
