Another day, another reason for trolls to get mad at Captain Marvel.

The superhero movie, first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to centre on a female character, has been praised for its feminist message but a minority of fans have taken issue with it as well as Brie Larson.

Now they’re complaining about a deleted scene involving Carol Danvers and a sexist biker (Robert Kazinsky), which was trimmed down for the film.

In this extended version, the biker approaches Carol and demands a smile for offering unwanted help so she uses her powers to bring him to his knees and get his bike.

Some men are not happy with Carol using her powers on a dude-bro in such a way.

“Captain Marvel tortures a Man, steals his motorcycle. Yikes Movie Scenes like this will definitely not help feminists causes,” Twitter user @alpacajon65 said.

“The Man's crime, he asked a Woman to smile. Just imagine if a Man treated a Woman like this in our society,”

A few have pointed out that the scene was a nod to the 1991 movie T2: Judgement Day so maybe people should see it as an homage and nothing else.

Guess he’s Team Carol.

Sadly for Captain Marvel trolls, the next phase of the MCU will see her play a major part.

There are rumours that Larson’s superhero will head up the New Avengers following the climactic events of The Infinity Saga which will also, hopefully, usher in a load of new heroes.

Speaking of Captain Marvel’s next movie, Kevin Feige told Screen Rant: “The making of a first film is in some ways a brainstorm on the future and on what can be so what it will be again is not clear.

“But what it could be is pretty amazing.”
