Brie Larson is the star of the upcoming Captain Marvel film, which features the first female lead in a comic book movie for Marvel Studios (for those not too familiar with comics, Wonder Woman is from DC, which is a different franchise).
Without getting too deep into nerdy comic lore, Brie’s character could wipe the floor with just about any of the superpowered men you’ve seen in movies like this over the years. To put it mildly, she’s a really powerful woman!
Haters coming out of the woodwork to criticize a female superhero is, unfortunately, quite predictable. What’s unprecedented — and entirely idiotic — is why some people are already bashing the film.
The first trailer for the highly anticipated movie recently debuted, and it’s just as action-packed and exciting as you’d expect.
But the men of the internet have already taken issue with one aspect of Brie’s appearance: her smile (or lack thereof).
Scroll down to see just how gross these comments are and Brie’s absolutely brilliant response that simultaneously points out their sexism while shutting them up at the same time!
Brie has catapulted to superstardom in recent years.
Brie posted the above manipulated photo and two more like it (below) to her Instagram story. It’s the original poster for a Captain America movie — a popular superhero flick starring a man — and she slapped a stupid-looking grin on his face.

Second, it shows just how sexist those expectations are. A bunch of males saw a woman not smiling and immediately decided to criticize it. I, for one, haven’t ever heard the same criticism about male superheroes.
