If you’ve been following the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’ll know that (and this isn’t a big spoiler) the post-credits sequence of “Avengers: Infinity War” ended with Nick Fury calling in Captain Marvel for emergency backup.

If you’re wondering who Captain Marvel is, “Captain Marvel” will be released before “Avengers: Endgame,” so expect plenty of star Brie Larson at the movies this year.

Now that Larson is on the press tour to promote “Captain Marvel,” she’s taking care not to let white men dominate the conversation, right down to hand-selecting who gets to interview her.

Larson told Marie Claire:

“About a year ago, I started paying attention to what my press days looked like and the critics reviewing movies, and noticed 
it appeared to be overwhelmingly white male,” Larson said when asked about her reasons for choosing [disabled journalist Keah] Brown as her interviewer. “So, I spoke to 
Dr. Stacy Smith at the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, who put together a study to confirm that. Moving forward, I decided to make sure my press days were more inclusive. After speaking with you, the film critic Valerie Complex and a few other women of color, it sounded like across the board they weren’t getting the same opportunities as others. When I talked to the facilities that weren’t providing it, they all had different excuses.”

But is the movie any good?


Hey, Larson clarified, asking rhetorically, “Am I saying I hate white dudes? No, I’m not.”

Not to state the obvious, but the whole point of a press tour is to get the audience hyped to see the movie.

“Captain Marvel” opens March 8, if you’re still interested.
