Samuel L. Jackson to continue filming ‘Secret Invasion’ and ’The Marvels’ In …
Samuel L. Jackson stood up for friend and actress Brie Larson in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
Jackson, who has starred alongside Brie Larson in Captain Marvel, and has played the role of Nick Fury in the MCU for 15 years, hit out “incel dudes who hate strong women” when talking about the sexist backlash Larson received for her role as Captain Marvel in the 2019 film of the same name.
“Brie’s a stronger person than people give her credit for,” the 74-year-old said. “She’s not going to let any of that stuff destroy her.”
Captain Marvel was review bombed by trolls for featuring Larson’s female character in the leading role. Jackson added that the trolls hated “the fact that she’s a feminist who has an opinion and expressed it.”
