Marvel Studio’s highly anticipated sequel to Captain Marvel, The Marvels, is causing a stir for all the wrong reasons.
With complaints about subpar VFX and a lackluster script, fans are expressing their disappointment.
The film stars Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson, who is also making waves in the Apple TV drama Lessons in Chemistry. She’s joined by the dynamic Iman Vellani, known for her infectious enthusiasm in Ms. Marvel (2022).
Despite the high expectations, The Marvels, set to hit theaters on Nov. 10, seems to be struggling to meet the usual Marvel standards.
Fans, when questioned about their excitement for the movie, have responded with underwhelming sentiments.

Everything went down when Tony Stark died. I mean the Spider-Man movie was fun to watch but aside from that: everything is very gay.

The possibility of not getting the desired response, the reason can be building up tons of content and not maintaining the quality of MCU.
Wall Street analyst Eric Handler, who covers Disney said, “The Marvel machine was pumping out a lot of content. Did it get to the point where there was just too much, and they were burning people out on superheroes? It’s possible. The more you do, the tougher it is to maintain quality.”
According to Variety, the movie, which cost $250 million and sees Brie Larson reprising her role as Captain Marvel, is tracking to open to $75 million-$80 million, far below the $185 million Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness took in domestically in its debut weekend last year.
Despite these responses some fans still hope for a better content.
