I'm so excited to finally see Marvel's first woman superhero movie. I'm less excited about the fact that many of the biggest publications are having men write their #CaptainMarvel reviews. Want proof? Here's a thread of Captain Marvel reviews written by men.

First up, we have The New York Times: nytimes.com/2019/03/05/mov…
Next, this one's from Vanity Fair: vanityfair.com/hollywood/2019…
Also, a few of these hardly even mention the words "woman" and "women", such as this one from CNN: cnn.com/2019/03/05/ent…
How's it going, Hollywood Reporter? hollywoodreporter.com/review/captain…
The Guardian is up next: theguardian.com/film/2019/mar/…
This one is from IndieWire: indiewire.com/2019/03/captai…
Not that I expected anything good from The New York Post, but here's The New York Post: nypost.com/2019/03/05/cap…
Can't forget about USA Today: usatoday.com/story/life/mov…
The west coast is in on it too! Here's the LA Times: latimes.com/entertainment/…
And so is Chicago. Here's the Chicago Tribune: chicagotribune.com/entertainment/…
This is from Newsday, which is apparently the eighth most-circulated newspaper in the US: newsday.com/entertainment/…
Almost forgot about The Atlantic! theatlantic.com/entertainment/…
This is a much longer thread than I was anticipating! Think I'm gonna take a break.

One thing to note — all is not lost. There are a ton of brilliant women who have already reviewed #CaptainMarvel, and I'm sure many more to come. Men, try to prioritize reading theirs!
Also, @brielarson pledging to make sure the #CaptainMarvel press tour isn't overwhelmingly white and male is super inspiring. We just need publications to follow suit! After all, it is #WomensHistoryMonth :) marieclaire.co.uk/entertainment/…
Another very important point: this happens ALL THE TIME with films by people of color, in which every white male critic in the universe usually has something to say and most often gets commissioned to write reviews for the biggest publications.
So if you're a male critic reading this thread and you're asked to write a review of #CaptainMarvel for a major publication, consider saying "You know, I think I should sit this one out and make room for women's voices."
Or if you're a publication or editor reading this thread, I'll hope you'll challenge yourself to commission women to write your #CaptainMarvel reviews.
If a movie is moving the needle forward in terms of representation, you have a role to play too! You too can move the needle forward as an editor, a publication, or even a prominent man writer simply by making room for new voices.
