People dislike Larson for a range of, often unjustified, reasons. Marvel fans aren’t particularly fond of her character but much of the frustration is directed at Larson herself.

Once Captain Marvel came out in 2019, a lot of the hardcore MCU fans called her “unlikeable” and claimed that she ruined what should have been one of the most unique and complex characters in the comic book world.

Despite the backlash, Captain Marvel played a pivotal role in the MCU’s narrative, and Larson’s popularity as Captain Marvel remains high.
