Is Marvel starting to downgrade?

Is Marvel starting to downgrade?

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has had a very long and great legacy so far with many amazing pieces produced; but in recent years has there been a decline in their quality of work?

 

The Marvel Universe has always been a fan favorite amongst movie lovers when choosing something to watch. With “Avengers: Endgame” still being number two on biggest box office hits to this day, just behind Avatar, along with three other Marvel produced films in the top 10 spots (6th-Avengers: Infinity war, 7th-Spider-Man: No Way Home, and 10th- The Avengers). Recently, Marvel released their new movie “The Marvels”. It was expected to make at least $75 million to $80 million in box office grossing’s on its opening weekend, but ended up making $47 million, almost half of the expected amount. With almost half of their movies being ranked 85% and above on Rotten Tomatoes, a couple of their newer released movies have been gaining criticism and poor reviews. Marvel’s lowest Rotten Tomatoes rated film acquired as little as 47% on the movie; Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantomania with an overall rating of only 3.4 stars. Their movies usually average about 4.5 stars according to Google reviews. However, there might be a reason for the lack of enthusiasm on recent Marvel projects.

 

Perhaps the reason for Marvel starting to “downgrade” is from when the “Multiverse Saga” started. From the beginning, the Multiverse Saga has lacked focus, the special effects haven’t been “special,” the quality control has declined, and casual Marvel fans are feeling overwhelmed  by the films as well as the Disney+ series. An example to backup these claims can be about the hyped up Disney+ show “Secret Invasion ”. An eerie, sophisticated, conspiracy thriller that ended up being disappointing. Many fans criticized the show for poor writing and the untimely loss of beloved characters like Ben Mendelsohn’s “Talos” and Cobie Smulders’ “Maria Hill” along with the series finale episode “Home” being rated a whopping low Critic’s score of just 13%. 

 

For many years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) was a self-contained industry. It was a franchise that took over pop culture, producing enough merchandise to cover the ocean in microplastics, and funding a diverse array of content creators, including critics, fan theorists, detractors, and Marvel enthusiasts who could explain comic book references to uninformed moviegoers. One other possible cause leading to the current troubles of the MCU could simply be audience fatigue . Marvel has flooded fans with a ton of connected movies and TV shows over the last ten years, building a vast world. Superfans may still be devoted, but casual viewers may be getting tired of superheroes due to the sheer amount of content available. 

 

MCU is one of the most beloved film franchises throughout movie watchers, and they still hold a special place in the hearts of many people. Hopefully, Marvel Studios will make a comeback and once again live up to its big expectations like their content used to.
