Extended ‘Captain Marvel’ scene causes controversy: Guess who’s good with tough chick stealing from and hurting a guy for being a jerk?

While the greatest sin is that some don’t seem to realize that the fictional world of comics does not play too well in real life, especially on the battlefield, an extended scene from “Captain Marvel” of a tough guy biker being subdued by the heroine is drawing fire.

The scene is from the latest “Avengers” film featuring Brie Larson as the super hero — the character was first introduced as Ms. Marvel, a.k.a. Carol Danvers, before going on to replace the original male Captain Marvel, her love interest, when he died.

Larson is looking at a map in the street as a biker, played by Robert Kazinsky, rides by. Seeing a damsel in distress, he stops to help, heavy on the typical stereotypical male condescension you might expect. Kazinsky even calls her “darling.”

He asks for a smile, saying, “I’m offering to help you, the least you can do is give me a smile.”

Our heroine offers a handshake instead, before squeezing his hand until he submits, turning over his bike and leather jacket before beating a hasty retreat.

The theft of the biker’s property not enough to quell the larceny in her heart, she also swipes some clothing from a nearby shop.

For the liberal media, the scene was all about stamping out “toxic masculinity.” With the emasculation of the American male in full swing in post-Obama America, seeing a man brought to his knees by a powerful woman is like an aphrodisiac.

“Get an EXCLUSIVE first look at @BrieLarson taking on toxic masculinity (in the form of @RobertKazinsky) in this extended scene,” tweeted USA Today.

The feminist spin put on it by the paper all but guaranteed a controversial reaction, which is why they did it.

Kazinsky responded with a tweet of his own.

Sharing a meme depicting Captain Marvel laughing, he tweeted: “I’m caught in the mentions of men who hate Cpt Marvel, and oh my god….”

As for Larson, she appears to be well cast for the role the left is embracing, being fully on board the diversity train, as seen with her acceptance speech for the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film.

“I don’t want to hear what a white man has to say about ‘A Wrinkle in Time.’ I want to hear what a woman of color, a biracial woman has to say about the film,” Larson said, according to the Washington Examiner. “I want to hear what teenagers think about the film.”

In an interview with Marie Claire, the actress talked about how her movie press days “appeared to be overwhelmingly white male.”

“Moving forward, I decided to make sure my press days were more inclusive,” Larson said.

Talk about liberal spin, The Wire’s Angela Watercutter was clear that Captain Marvel is about female power.

“Like witches, and suffragettes, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Captain Marvel was told that her anger in a fight was too much, that it would get her in trouble,” she said. “That wasn’t true, it was just that everyone was afraid of her might.”

Lila Rose, president of the pro-life group Pro Action, responded to the USA Today tweet with a stellar observation: “Ummm… ya don’t take on ‘toxic masculinity’ with toxic ‘femininity.’ How is this going to help anyone?”

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter to what appears to be “the new normal” in post-Obama America.
