Probably because Alita was already their waifu, while Captain Marvel has become a feminist icon in a company that has produced several feminist comics lately. I still remember the flame war when Marvel had that Mockingbird cover with the "feminist agenda" t-shirt.

It doesn't really have anything to do with the film itselfó several of the people who are now boosting Alita previously derided it. It's just about having another female-lead film they can point to as "actually good", so they can defend against accusations of misogyny.

Did you read the explanation? The pink and blue dots are where the top movies place on the gendered list of top 100 movies, and the lines are the distance between their positions. Hope that helps.

"Ruh-ro" is the absolute best way to express dismay at a situation entirely within your power to fix

Trolls are dumb, and Alita and Capt Marvel were both awesome. That is all.

The Disney acquisition of Fox has just finished. I can't say that thrills me, but it is what it is.

The Disney Company website reflects this.



Seems they now own Atlanta, The Simpsons, Baseball and Chimpanzees. I can't wait for their company's reboot of Chimapanzees. Granted, they'll be safer with the edges filed off a bit, but the quality of the animal will be more consistent with a new Chimpanzee coming out each year.
