The WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes prohibited The Marvels cast from doing any promotion for the movie in the build-up to its release, but better late than never!
Now that the Captain Marvel sequel is in theaters and the strikes have been resolved, Brie Larson (Carol Danvers) has taken to social media to thank fans for going out and supporting the film.
It's a good thing, too, because The Marvels is going to need all the help it can get.
Nia DaCosta's space-set superhero adventure never looked likely to bust many blocks, but the latest box office projections indicate that it could end up with one of the lowest opening weekends in the history of the MCU. Reviews have also been mixed, although the movie has climbed up to "fresh" status on Rotten Tomatoes with an 85% audience score.
Check out the video below, along with some new posters.
"The Marvels is far from the best Marvel Studios has to offer, but it's difficult not to get swept up in its infectious energy... to a point," we said in our review. "A disjointed third act lets it down, but a game cast and plenty of fun/funny moments elevate it above more lacklustre MCU fare (we're looking at you, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumnia)."
"In Marvel Studios’ The Marvels, Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as The Marvels.”
The film also stars Zawe Ashton and Park Seo-joon. Nia DaCosta directs, and Kevin Feige is the producer. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Mary Livanos and Matthew Jenkins serve as executive producers. The screenplay is by Megan McDonnell, Nia DaCosta, Elissa Karasik and Zeb Wells.
The Marvels will begin its international rollout on November 8, and was recently granted a China release on November 10, day-and-date with North America.
