Disney CEO says ‘lack of supervision’ affected The Marvels during filming

Spread MCU News

As The Marvels weathers a dismal theatrical run, Disney CEO Bob Iger feels a lack of oversight on the set ultimately damaged the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Iger said in an interview that the lack of proper supervision on site had impacted the Captain Marvel sequel, which was filmed during the COVID-19 outbreak. Stricter pandemic regulations together with Disney+’s post-launch concentration on content made it more difficult for Disney to oversee the numerous new productions that were in development at the time. ​Iger stated that “The Marvels” was filmed during COVID-19. “On the set, so to speak, where we have executives who really look over what’s being done day after day after day, there wasn’t as much supervision.” Since filming for The Marvels started in July 2021 in England, there have been several problems with the production. The sequel reportedly suffered from creative problems, and Marvel CEO Kevin Feige approved weeks of reshoots because he didn’t like the way the movie was going. After receiving fewer than stellar reviews from the public, the superhero movie had another test screening, which exposed even more flaws. There was also the controversy surrounding director Nia DaCosta, who quit during post-production to concentrate on Hedda, a film that starred Tessa Thompson from the Thor movie.

A challenging run at the box office has befallen The Marvels since its debut on November 10. Despite having a $275 million gross budget, the MCU blockbuster has only generated $187.9 million. It has declined sharply in the previous two weekends and is not among the top five American box office releases. Compared to Captain Marvel, which made over $1.13 billion at the movie office in 2019, this is a far cry. If The Marvels continues on its present trajectory, it will be the first MCU film to miss the $100 million mark domestically and, following Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the second to lose Marvel money since the pandemic. Teyonah Parris plays Monica Rambeau in The Marvels, Iman Vellani plays Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, and Brie Larson plays Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel. Vellani recently attempted to divert attention away from the movie’s box office problems by implying that Iger need to respond to inquiries about them. Legendary novelist Stephen King, meanwhile, sprang to The Marvels’ defence after criticising some who took pleasure in the movie’s box office setbacks, with some saying it was too “woke” for their taste. Although there have been rumours that Larson has been “disillusioned” with her role as Captain Marvel, she has hinted at her next debut in the MCU. The Marvels, which also stars Samuel L. Jackson and Zawe Ashton, follows Carol, Monica, and Kamala as they inadvertently combine their abilities while looking into a wormhole connected to the Kree. A significant prelude to the X-Men’s eventual MCU entrance is also included in the movie.
