Scarlett Johansson ‘Pushing’ for All-Women Marvel Movie

After the epic battle scene in “Avengers: Endgame” depicted the female superheroes uniting to protect Spider-Man from Thanos, Marvel fans started wondering if they’ll ever see the women unite for a standalone movie. “Captain Marvel” star Brie Larson generated even more buzz when she told Variety that she and other female co-stars have approached Marvel […]

Variety’s Power of Women Celebrates Honorees’ Voices and Activism

When Jennifer Aniston was 11, she was casually dismissed from the dinner table by a parental figure “because I ‘didn’t have anything interesting to add to the conversation.’” That belittlement has stayed with the “Friends” and “The Morning Show” star through to adulthood, prompting her to muse at Variety‘s Power of Women luncheon on the messages […]

Brie Larson Says Marvel Women Have ‘Passionately’ Told Kevin Feige They Want All-Female Movie

Long before the women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe joined forces for the epic female scene in “Avengers: Endgame, Marvel had expressed interest in an all-women Marvel mashup movie. But after that scene in “Endgame,” fans have been asking when they’ll see the female movie hit theaters. Now, Brie Larson, one of Variety’s Power of […]

Nolte: First Female Captain Marvel was Black and This Petition Wants Brie Larson Replaced

Marvel not only stepped right over the opportunity to honor its own legacy/canon/source material by casting a black woman as Captain Marvel, in order to do so Marvel fans have been punished with Larson’s insufferable presence.

No, The ‘Avengers’ Cast Don’t Hate Brie Larson!

We’ve been watching the Marvel Studios movies for a decade now — and we’ve been watching the press tours, too.

One thing that’s been overwhelmingly obvious is how much the original Avengers get along.

In group interviews, games, and behind-the-scenes footage, they always look like a bunch of teens on the last day of high school, having a great time together and not giving an eff.

Video: Chris Pratt Shares ‘Really Illegal’ Endgame Vid

Even as they’ve added new cast members, it’s always seemed like a big, fun club — which is amazing considering all the egos of all the big stars in play.

However, some fans think they’ve spotted the first real crack in the suit of armor around the world:

Brie Larson.

The Oscar winner has been a magnet for controversy thanks to her outspoken (but at times pretty clumsy) championing of more diversity in Hollywood.

And of course, sadly, just her existence as a female lead pissed off a certain group of man babies. (Yes, they’re the same ones who think Arya Stark is a “Mary Sue.” Look it up, SAME GUYS.)

The latest attacks on the actress seem to be a projection of how these fans feel personally about her — onto her castmates.

Basically they’re saying not only do they hate Brie Larson, but all the Avengers cast they love ALSO hate Brie Larson.

One YouTube channel even analyzed the body language between Brie and costars Chris Hemsworth and Don Cheadle during an interview.

The “body language expert” (who advertises a paid tutorial at the beginning of her video in which she’ll teach YOU how she does it) looks at a clip and says things like:

“They’re analyzing everything that comes out of her mouth. Lack of trust.”

Much hay is made over a moment in which Brie elbows Cheadle, and he doesn’t like it:

Look at the “lack of trust” here — wait, can body language experts read eye rolls in text? / (c) YouTube

There are many videos which posit the same theory; there are now rumors going around about Brie being “difficult” and a “diva” on set.

But this one caught the attention of one of the actual actors in question — one who doesn’t mind getting into the fray on social media.

Don Cheadle broke out the War Machine guns to blast the vid, tweeting:

 

The video does seem to take everything out of context.

You never know when watching an interview what JUST happened beforehand, what the conditions are like.

They DO look uncomfortable. Even the normally gregarious Hemsworth.

Chris Hemsworth Brie Larson awkward
Feeling Thor? / (c) YouTube

We can also tell the actors are shoved together pretty awkwardly for the camera. And that’s probably their 200th time answering that same question. These are things the “body language expert” doesn’t seem to be taking into account.

Not to mention Cheadle’s explanation of the hair stylist which, shockingly, the “expert” didn’t pick up on. Almost like she didn’t see everything that was happening around them and in between editing. Huh.

Look, you know how much we love hearing about the tea when it comes to feuds between stars.

But this isn’t tea, y’all. This isn’t even herbal tea.

Do YOU buy the rumor the OG Avengers cast has a problem with Brie Larson??

Nolte: The Unbearable Ingratitude of Marvel’s Brie Larson

We know who’s alive and who’s “dead” thanks to the Marvel movie posters…

But that didn’t stop LITERALLY everyone from coming out to the Los Angeles premiere of Avengers: Endgame on Monday night at the Los Angeles Convention Center. As you might remember, Infinity War left off with the evil power-hungry Thanos wiping out half the universe and killing SO MANY of our faves with a snap of his fingers!!

While all these snuggly couples looked adorable, honorable mention goes out to Chris and Katherine who made their red carpet debut as a couple! ICYMI, the duo became engaged in early 2019 and are currently planning their lavish nuptials!

On planning, Chris told ET:

“I’m up to about my neck, you know? That’s pretty deep. That’s up to about 5-foot-something. I’m in it baby, I’m in it. It’s good. It’s a good time! We’re all very blessed. It’s a good time to be here for the Avengers premiere and also good things happening for me in life. I just count my blessings every day.”

 

Aww!

The Gauntlet

Our favorite moment of all was Brie and Scarlett rocking the s**t out of all the Infinity Stones on the carpet. They each put their personal touch on the gauntlet, donning on their left hand, and honestly it’s making us SNAP (in a Z formation)!

Scarlett Johansson and Brie larson wore infinity stones to the Avengers: Endgame premiere

And the fans LOVED IT too, with some even thinking the step-and-repeat move was a clue to a woman taking down the ugly purple super hero killer:
