Captain Marvel, hoping to make carol a bit more likeable for those who hate her. (WIP)

i particularly disliked captain marvel as did many people. for me, carol came across as arrogant and condescending, particularly to men. this anti man feeling also extended beyond carol and in my opinion the worst part of the film where “I’m just a girl” started playing. As a woman, I didn’t find any of this particularly empowering as I think it was meant to be.
I wondered if these things were the main reason why this film feels bad to me so i have been taking another look and considering how the film would work with some alterations.

the first thing I have done is to try and remove that song and replace it with something i felt fit the theme better. I decided on “Ready to go” by Republica.
I have this sequence already done and rendered out.
If anyone is interested in taking a look and giving any feedback, I’d be happy to hear your thoughts.

Here is the clip to what I have done with the music. (it’s about 1 - 2 mins) https://mega.nz/file/Cm4RlACL#kvtZ1-x_IBUh19CRnC-OOp4NtTg25laJZZKbBzyZ6D8

I don’t even dislike Captain Marvel, per se. I may sound like a chud, but there isn’t an MCU film that I actively dislike, yet. I think the worst of them are watchable, at least in the context of the rest of the series. But I understand and agree with your assessment. Captain Marvel really hamfisted the “girl-power” thing in to the point where Carol Danvers was pretty annoying at several points in the film.

I had no problem with her being arrogant and condescending. I also had no problems with Strange and Stark being arrogant and condescending. The problem I had was the latter two were allowed to also be funny whereas Danvers wasn’t. Though that’s probably because she spent most of the film not knowing who she was.

Ok, thanks ^_^

I’ve added the link to my edit of the music. I’ll also add it here - https://mega.nz/file/Cm4RlACL#kvtZ1-x_IBUh19CRnC-OOp4NtTg25laJZZKbBzyZ6D8
I would welcome any and all feedback!

oh… yes I’m aware of the strange glitch at the start before the music begins. I’m not sure what caused that, probably a misalignment i can iron out later. This clip is more to demonstrate the audio work I did.

yes, ham fisted is a good way to describe it. I want to keep in the girl power as an underlying theme, but just tone it down a bit. or maybe a lot. we’ll see how it goes XD

That’s a good point. the comedy does tend to soften the arrogance quite a bit.
