Captain Marvel Takes on Toxic Masculinity in Extended Scene


Captain Marvel may still be lingering in theaters, but if you want to watch it from the comfort of your own couch, good news! The film is coming to digital download May 28th, and the Blu-ray will be released on June 11th. The Blu-ray comes with six deleted scenes and plenty of bonus featurettes and behind-the-scenes content.

We’ve already seen a very cute deleted scene of Carol, Yon-Rogg and some baby Kree recruits. The scene is charming, but doesn’t give us much new information beyond what we already know.

The newly released scene “What, No Smile?”

However, the newly released scene “What, No Smile?” delivers exactly what we want from Captain Marvel, namely Carol kicking ass and taking down the patriarchy. The scene is extended to reveal what happens between the biker asking her to smile and Carol making off with his bike.

After releasing a deleted scene featuring Carol getting a lesson on the Supreme Intelligence, Marvel unveiled a new extended scene. USA Today released the scene, which takes place in the first half of the film. Shortly after Carol Danvers finds herself on Earth, she steals the motorcycle of a man who tells her to smile more. However, the scene originally played for much longer.

In the extended scene, the man, played by Rob Kazinsky, gets off his bike and walks up to Carol, smugly offering her a ride and asking for a smile. The man, who introduces himself as “The Don” has no idea who he is actually talking to. After Carol offers a handshake instead, she uses her cosmic powers to bring him to his knees, asking for his jacket and keys.

Captain Marvel had a strong feminist message, and star Brie Larson used her position to advocate for more diversity in the movie’s media junkets.

“Heading to Torfa”

Marvel also released a second deleted scene, “Heading to Torfa” which has captured some banter between the Starforce members.

The scene doesn’t deliver much in the way of exposition, it’s just the team reminding Carol to keep herself stealthy and restrained. Minn-Erva calls her “twinkle-fists”, but that’s all about it. The Starforce members are pretty thinly drawn in the film, and it did feel like a letdown to cast Gemma Chan for barely a few moments of screentime. Given the character’s presence and history in the comics, it’s disappointing that she would not have a larger life in the MCU.
