What could go wrong?
BURBANK, CA — There’s lots of buzz in Hollywood about Captain Marvel. Not the movie being released this weekend, but the next Captain Marvel: an all-male remake by the makers of Ghostbusters (2016)!
Marvel Studios’ new blockbuster, with actress Brie Larson in the title role, is already old news. Now producer Ivan Reitman and director Paul Feig are looking to duplicate their Ghostbusters gender-switching remake success with the Captain Marvel character.
As with Ghostbusters (2016), the script is being written by Reitman, Feig, and Katie Dippold. Story details are unknown other than this film centers on the exact same character, who just happens to be male.
Some fans of the original Ghostbusters were labeled as being sexist or misogynistic for criticizing the 2016 film’s all-female concept. But the makers of the new Captain Marvel are certain their version will be quickly embraced as a “landmark of male empowerment.”
We’re waiting for the all-guy Golden Girls reboot. How about you? Comment below!
