Captain Marvel deleted scene gets backlash from critics

Captain Marvel

Even before the film’s theatrical release, Captain Marvel was at the center of controversy due to Brie Larson’s comments about white men. This resulted in upset fans giving negative comments on Rotten Tomatoes, and the aggregated review site made some changes to prevent that from happening. The movie was then released and made over $1 billion at the box office worldwide. Captain Marvel is coming soon to Blu-ray and DVD, and Marvel Studios has released a deleted scene to help promote the upcoming home release. It has been met with backlash from the critics since it contained a scene where Captain Marvel threatens a biker.

The scene is an extended scene where Captain Marvel lands on Earth in the 1990s and reads a map to figure out where she is. A biker shows up and tries to get her attention. When he didn’t get the reply he wanted, he asks, “What, no smile?” Captain Marvel then offers for a handshake, only to show off her superhuman strength. She then threatens the biker that he’d lose his hand if he didn’t give her his bike.

The deleted scene was met with backlash from upset fans, saying that she is acting like a villain.

The actor who played the biker had something to say about the backlash.

With the backlash, there are those defending the deleted scene.
