This movie was doomed from the start.

@ObserverIO - we all know why it made that much money and it has nothing to do with the actual quality of it, the second movie gives a more accurate representation of how people feel about this character

@ObserverIO - A monkey’s paw of short term profit yielding zero long-term interest. You’re as shortsighted as Marvel’s execs if you think that means shit.

@ClintThaHamster - In before someone says its due to the movie coming out before Endgame, like Antman 2 didn't also

@NegativeNerd - Too late, @urubrodi has dropped the implication right up there.

@Urubrodi - people love the character, which is why the first film did well - but they saw the film and were like...yeah nah ill pass on anymore of this, plus brie's comments about the fans basically said no worries dont watch the second one again.

@Gizmoduck - I doubt it. People weren't wildly familiar with Captain Marvel outside of people who already were into Marvel stuff.
But her movie had a lot of things lined up to help it:
1.It could be presented as an event thing the way BP could sell as the MCU's first black focused but instead it was their first female focused film. It would seem empowering and bold. This is prevalent in the first film a bit imo.
2. It seemed like it was going to be vital to Endgame (ironically Ant-Man and the Wasp was moreso but never sold upon that) and it also brought back Coulson and teased that we could see something interesting with him and Fury back in the 90s (didn't really deliver well upon that imo).

Anyway I actually liked where they took her character with the Marvels.

@Slotherin - "I actually liked where they took her character with the Marvels."

Seriously. The irony of the film's loudest critics being people that have never, and will never, actually watch it.

@Gizmoduck - I loved Carol as Ms Marvel but the Captain Marvel run was horrible and unpopular, so not a good choice to use that iteration.

@Wilke589 - Interesting that to make a point you need to go to name calling when I didn't offend anyone in anyway. CBMs are not making as much as they used to but the good ones still make profit, like Guardians 3 that was released months before. Captain Marvel was teased in the post credit of Infinity War and released right before Endgame, the 2 biggest CBMs of all time and it was the first time Marvel did a female led movie, so to think that these are not major factors is naive. But you're entitled to your opinion.

Wilke589 - 3/8/2024, 7:17 PM
@Urubrodi - Thor Love and Thunder made nearly 800 million, so is that an objectively great movie? Or (just like Guardians 3) is that a case of a movie that had the advantage of being part of the early/pop-culture phenomenon era of the MCU which gave it a massive built-in advantage over a franchise like The Marvels who had none of that.

Ant Man 2 made over 600 million, do you genuinely believe if that exact same movie released tomorrow it would make even half that? Because it factually wouldn't.

Every MCU movie's box-office is a direct result of *when* it was released/what the state of the world was at that time. Hence my point that it's bullsh!t nonsense hypocrite cherry-picking to say "Captain Marvel made a billion but that means nothing, The Marvels underperformed which is PROOF it's objectively bad!"

Either Captain Marvel is an objectively massively successful/great movie and The Marvels is an objectively failed/terrible movie.......OR..........Captain Marvel's high box office was helped by Endgame and The Marvels' low box-office was hindered by the current state of the economy/movie theaters rising prices causing countless people to wait for streaming instead/casual viewers waining interest in superhero movies in general.

Take your pick.

I miiiiight actually prefer this to what they went with, strictly from an aesthetic standpoint. Could have been a good look for Mar-Vell.

I hope Captain Marvel dies in Secret Wars.
Brie Larson is a good actress, but she somehow sucks as Carol Danvers in all movies except Endgame.

@MarvelZombie616 - its not her, its the writing.. as the Russos showed.

Weird and unnecessary given they had about 50 years of comics to draw from - but hey, they made the OG Captain Marvel a woman so why expect any comic accuracy
