The overlap between people who despise captain marvel and the people denigrating Barbie being “wake propaganda” it’s there for all to see, so it’s no surprise to find a veteran of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and strange doctor director scott derrickson lighting a fire under both fields with a single sentence.
Taking to Twitter to comment on the jaw-dropping box office performance of Greta Gerwig’s spectacular romp, the horror veteran noted that she’s on her way to securing one of the biggest opening weekends in the world for any feature that isn’t a sequel, remake or reboot.
A fairly innocuous analysis of the runaway success of the block’s new blockbuster IP, or so you’d think. Right on cue, Derrickson was bombarded and responded to a series of replies attempting to remove the technicalities that would erase both. Barbie and captain marvel of this particular conversation.

Not even The Super Mario Bros. movie he was safe from being drawn into the debate.
All Derrickson was trying to do was shed light on just how monolithic BarbieThe success of has been around from the start, but there will always be a nasty subset ready and willing to try and take it down.
