Brie Larson has once again enraged Marvel fans. She was recently chastised for purchasing the contentious cryptocurrency NFTs. And it appears that the Oscar winner is doubling down on her questionable decisions by visiting the metaverse, and no one is pleased with Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel.
Brie Larson sparked controversy by changing her Twitter profile photo to a FlowerGirls NFT created by Varvara Alay. Despite supporters’ warnings, Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are a type of cryptocurrency similar to Bitcoin or Ethereum that cannot be exchanged and is frequently used for money laundering while also damaging the environment.
Brie Larson’s NFT profile image is still there, and she sparked more outrage from fans with a recent post in which she revealed she had joined the metaverse of somewhere, saying:
“Welcome to my humble nook of the @some place metaverse. I’m looking forward to meeting you all shortly.”

Someplace characterizes its mobile metaverse, which was founded by Lana Hopkins and Juliana DiSimone, as follows:
The somewhere mobile metaverse allows you to access digital culture from the palm of your hand. Our intuitive, multiplayer environment allows you the tools to connect with like-minded people, form communities, and express yourself in a real-time, 3D digital space, as well as in real life with augmented reality.
You’ll be able to curate and share everything that matters to you thanks to a marketplace, activations, and public spaces unlike any other. Someplace was founded by women entrepreneurs with the goal of breaking down barriers to create a more egalitarian digital experience for everyone.
But what exactly is a metaverse? In his 1992 sci-fi novel Snow Crash, author Neal Stephenson coined the word “metaverse.” It’s a digital world where people may live out their daily lives – picture Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One (2018), starring Tye Sheridan (Fantastic Four) as Wade Watts and based on Ernest Cline’s 2011 novel.
Why are Marvel fans so upset with Brie Larson now?
Brie Larson is used to a certain segment of Marvel Cinematic Universe fans despising her for no apparent reason. Her problems started when she won the Crystal Award at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards in Los Angeles in 2018.
She noted that the bulk of cinema critics were older, white men, and that the field needs to diversify as more films not about that demographic were produced. She was correct, based on the racist and sexist critiques for Pixar’s latest film, Turning Red.
Marvel fans interpret it as a sign that she has lost her genuineness, and they blame her boyfriend, Elijah Allan-Blitz, a virtual reality expert, for luring her into the metaverse. Brie Larson utilized her new metaverse to show off some NFT art, and Twitter user sapphicinephile noticed an odd resemblance to the set of The Good Place, where Kristen Bell (Frozen) played Eleanor Shellstrop, who was tortured by images of clowns.

Fans, however, have more than aesthetic issues with Brie Larson’s metaverse. The popular metaverse is rife with scam opportunities, and some view it as a means for the wealthy to find new ways to profit from a changing digital landscape.
According to NarrativeEscape:
‘Brie Larsen, poor thing.’ This whole Metaverse, NFT, and crypto land grab always seems so bleak. And I’m typically quite optimistic about the future.

A certain segment of Marvel fans has been whining about Brie Larson since she became the first female star in a Marvel film. They disseminated reports that she will be replaced by Marvel Studios, but she will appear in the Captain Marvel (2018) sequel The Marvels (February 17, 2023). However, many of her fans are losing patience with the Captain Marvel star. Cm crockford commented:
“Learning that Brie Larson has fully embraced the Metaverse”
“You used to be lovely,” says a GIF of Michael Cera from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010). In the film, Brie Larson played Envy Adams.

Brie Larson’s future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Kevin Feige has no intentions to replace Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, despite the criticism from fans. What If…?, Marvel Studios’ first original animated series on Disney+, featured Alexandra Daniels as her. However, Brie Larson is set to return in Marvel’s Phase Four.
The full logline for Brie Larson’s second excursion as Captain Marvel has been released by Marvel Studios:
Brie Larson will reprise her role as Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers in Marvel Studios’ The Marvels. Teyonah Parris, who first appeared as adult Monica Rambeau in Marvel Studios’ WandaVision, and Iman Vellani, who will play Ms. Marvel in the upcoming Disney+ series of the same name, will join her in the film. Prepare to experience it and fly higher, farther, and faster with Nia DaCosta’s film!”
