Banks comments were not received well by some on social media, with people on Twitter saying that her movie just didn’t look good.

“Elizabeth Banks is so talented but she is saying such idiotic things. Charlie’s Angels will flop not because men don’t want to see it but because the marketing is so f—- atrocious NOBODY wants to see it,” another echoed.

Still, others jumped to Banks’ defense and backed up her comments, agreeing that the superhero genre gave Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman a leg up that Charlie’s Angels didn’t have.
