Ms Marvel: 'I felt I belonged on set'
And this is where reality rides in on a horse of bold colours...
Moving away from the BBC's cheerleading on Newsround and Newsbeat and Twitter and the BBC website to the real world of what audiences actually want to watch, it's clear that the viewing public aren't anywhere near so enthusiastic.
To put it mildly.
The programme has massively flopped in the ratings so far, scoring a new low for any MCU-branded programme by a vast margin.
Its premiere sank to way under a million viewers - astonishingly, a bare half of the previous lowest-rated Marvel TV flop to date.
So, presumably being seen to be unwanted and woke, Ms Marvel has 'gone broke' and absolutely bombed.
The series might be fun and delightful - as per the friendly critics and the BBC - but the public clearly aren't inclined to watch it, for whatever reasons.
My guess then is that the BBC will now keep quiet about Ms Marvel flopping with the public...at least until Twitter/their US media allies starts blaming the audience's disinclination to watch it on racism. Then the Beeb is bound to lurch back into action.
