Hm. I think it's kind of a fraught question all around.

Toxic masculinity would seem to enforce that little boys are encouraged only in physical pursuits, with intellectual ones being too "sissy" (or other feminine gendered insult of your choice). It would be different if instead of Soft Dad Evans, we had a gifted female mother figure instead, for whom raising a gifted little girl would be an opportunity to open all the doors that had been closed in her own childhood.

From the trailers, it appears that the deceased parent wasn't gifted, and neither is Evans, so it's more of a focus on "What do I do with this kid who is totally different than me?" with a Hollywood view of extreme giftedness that has no relation to how it actually works.

Bah, sorry for rambling.
