Why The Marvels Is Underperforming at The Box Office!
So we went out and saw the sequel to Captain Marvel, The Marvels and we have a feeling that many people who went to see this movie didn’t realize that they needed to watch two seperate series, Wandavision and Ms Marvel on Disney +…
CelebnMovies247.com has realized that Marvel has been creating this massive Universe that ties Disney + series to the main stream movies that are in theaters. Now if you are not a huge Marvel fan, more than likely you are not watching those series that ties movies together.
This has cause a slow or shall we say underperformance for movies like The Marvels because moviegoers are not familiar with the content aka, Ms Marvel and Monica Rambeau, the daughter of Carol Danvers best friend from Captain Marvel. If you saw Wandavision, that you were reintroduced to Monica. You also learned how she got her powers from The Scarlet Witch in Wandavision.
The next character is Ms Marvel, if you didn’t watch this edgy, fun, and creative series on how Ms Marvel became Ms Marvel, then you are in the dark and you have no clue who she is. Not only that, but the movie litterally starts from the end of season 1 of Ms Marvel.
That alone tells you that Wandavision and Ms Marvel on Disney + are two important aspects in moving forward before watch The Marvels. If you go back and watch both series, I guarantee that you will like The Marvels much more.
As for Disney, they have their own theories, especially Bob Iger who weighed in heavy about Marvel films in general.
Quality needs attention … It doesn’t happen by accident. Quantity, in our case, diluted quality, he said, per NBC News.
With The Marvels in particular, Iger said part of the reason it’s falling short is because it was shot during the COVID-19 pandemic, and therefore “there wasn’t as much supervision on the set, so to speak, where we have executives [that are] really looking over what’s being done day after day after day.
I would say, right now, my No. 1 priority is to help the studio turn around creatively, he added.
The Marvels opened to a disappointing $47 million earlier this month, marking the lowest opening ever for an MCU movie. Iger spoke a bit his exit from Disney, placing Bob Chapek in charge in 2020, before he came back a little over a year ago.
I was disappointed in what I was seeing in the transition period and while I was out,” he said, per The New York Times. “I worked hard at distancing myself from it.
He added that he would “definitely” step back as CEO once his contract is up in 2026. He said he’s been “fixing a lot of problems that the company has had, and dealing with a lot of challenges,” reiterating previous sentiments that Disney has been in a “period of fixing” after a year of layoffs and box office disappointments.
