From The Washington Examiner Extended scene showing Captain Marvel subduing sleazy biker draws groans, mockery:
An extended scene from “Captain Marvel” showing the hero intimidating a male biker has drawn criticism for what some describe as its overly feminist message.
The feminist trope of the kickass gal putting a sleazy biker in his place is an old one, and is loved by both feminists and conservatives. I was surprised it would cause such a reaction. But after watching the scene I get it. First, this is the nicest “sleazy biker” I’ve ever seen. He isn’t intimidating, he’s just cheesy. Second, Captain Marvel is entirely humorless. Normally the trope involves a sassy kickass gal, but Captain Marvel comes off like a women’s studies major. Think the dour Dr. Judith Draper from 3rd Rock From the Sun wearing a pleather jumpsuit. This all makes for a hilarious scene, but not in the way that was intended:
