A few days ago, former The Wrap reporter Jeff Sneider claimed that The Marvels star Brie Larson was a "nightmare" on the sequel's set. He alleged that she clashed with her co-stars due to the fact Captain Marvel is sharing the spotlight and even accused the Oscar winner of "diva-like behaviour."
We've since heard, from our own sources, that the entire story is nonsense. Instead of the Captain Marvel sequel being a mess, it's said the recent release date delay us down to the additional time needed for post-production (and if Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania proved anything, it's that Marvel Studios needs to start taking its time with VFX).
Sneider has had more than his fair share of correct scoops in the past, as has KC Walsh, someone who has now countered his comments with some of their own.
Apparently, they've heard only good things about The Marvels, adding: "[The] movie has gotten more positive praise from test than other MCU films this year...sexist YouTubers use Larson as a way to garner favour with sexist and racists [and] [Jeff Sneider] is no different."
We'll leave these two self-proclaimed scoopers to argue this one out among themselves, but we've never heard anything about Larson being difficult to work with prior to this and her friendship with Ms. Marvel star Iman Vellani appears far from fraught.
The truth may lie somewhere in the middle. What we do know is that The Marvels arrives in theaters on November 10.
