Marvel Studios is at it again. The company is hyping the release of Avengers: Endgame with a brand-new trailer, but it doesn’t seem like everyone is excited about the reel. The addition of Captain Marvel thrilled millions, but fans aren’t too happy about how she looks.
As you can see below, a group of fans have started to question Captain Marvel’s appearance in the trailer. The heroine appears at the very end of the trailer with Thor and Black Widow, but her glam look confused many.
The main critique seems to be about Carol’s full face of makeup. On the heels of Captain Marvel, the heroine used minimal makeup if any and preferred a more natural look. However, this seems to be shifted in the trailer. Carol can be seen with red lips and eyeliner as she faces down Thor with an very unimpressed expression.
Some fans are asking if the decision was done to make Carol more feminine, and the proposal has infuriated all sort. After all, fans are asking why the heroine would choose to do a makeover as soon as she gets back to Earth when a universe-ending event has occurred, but there are others defending the heroine.
Other fans are pointing out that makeup doesn’t make a woman or man weak. Heroines like Peggy Carter and Natasha Romanoff have used makeup often and to varying degrees; Their status as strong women weren’t hit by those looks, and fans are stressing Captain Marvel deserves the same treatment. The fighter is strong with or without their makeup, but it seems this controversy is far from over at the moment.
