If you’re tired of Marvel movies with woke plotlines and feminist leading ladies, then that’s too bad because there’s another one on the way.
“The Marvels” is gearing up for its 2023 release next week and will star Brie Larson as Captain Marvel.
While Lauren Chen isn’t a fan of the Marvel franchise and its stars, she admits that what she is “a huge fan of is schadenfreude.”
“You see the team behind Captain Marvel, including Brie Larson herself. They were really at the forefront of basically accusing everybody who doesn’t like one of their movies of being sexist or toxic,” Chen says.
Larson as Captain Marvel has not been a selling point for fans, and because of that, Disney has “been doing everything in their power to essentially play damage control for the character.”
The new film is predicted to have one of, if not the worst, box office grosses for the MCU ever. It’s been predicted that "The Marvels" will only gross between $50 million and $75 million in its domestic opening weekend.
It’s also been predicted that the film will bring in between $121 million and $189 million at the domestic box office.
“If this data is correct, I really can’t imagine a way that Disney does not lose money on this,” Chen says.
And apparently, not even Brie Larson is fully on board with being Captain Marvel anymore.
“There’s even been a report that claims that Brie Larson has grown disillusioned with the role of Captain Marvel and that she no longer wants to play the character anymore,” Chen says.
