Marvel announced plans to bring an Israeli superhero to the cinematic universe and many on social media responded with hatred against the company.
The decision was revealed during Disney’s D23 Expo where Disney, the parent company of Marvel, said the actress Shira Haas would portray Sabra in the upcoming movie “Captain America: New World Order.”
The superhero character is an agent of Mossad, the Israeli national intelligence agency, in the comic book storyline.
Critics of Israel spewed out their hatred in response on social media.
“Israel’s Marvel superhero Sabra has many powers, including demolishing Palestinian homes with her mind and assassinating Palestinian children with her laser beam eyes,” read one popular tweet from the author of “Millennial Marxist.”
“Why are Zionists so triggered by this? Y’all don’t even think Arabs are human,” he added in a second tweet.
“Can #Marvel afford to piss off the Zionists by making her a villain? Or will they white-wash #Israel’s apartheid against #Palestine, like most of western media does? F*ck Zionists, by the way,” read another tweet.
“What do you think her superpowers are? Massacring Palestinians or destroying their homes leaving them homeless?” asked a tweet from Palestine Online.
“[I] just learnt that Sabra exists, which makes perfect sense in the universe in which Captain America and Iron Man also exist, but can people now stop denying belittling, & excusing Marvel’s blatant, deeply violent imperialist and colonial propaganda now, thanks,” read another critical tweet.
Others thought that the “New World Order” movie subtitle confirmed their conspiracy theories about Israel.
“…how coincidental Sabra will appear in the movie literally subtitled ‘New World Order.’ Seems the ones controlling entertainment are no longer being subtle about the Wizard behind the curtain,” read one tweet.
“Captain America: New World Order” is scheduled to be released on May 3, 2024.
