With reshoots and unimpressive test screening ratings, the next Marvel Cinematic Universe film is having a rough time getting ready for its much-anticipated release. A new report details these difficulties. According to sources, four weeks of reshoots were required for the next Captain Marvel sequel during the shooting process in order to correctly put together a “tangled” plot. Additionally, in order to determine the amount of interest in the Phase Five title, The Marvels held a public test screening in Texas this past June. The audience response to the test screening was “middling,” with many fans feeling let down by the finished film, which they considered to be mediocre at best. A source with knowledge of the inner workings of The Marvels set included criticism of director Nia DaCosta in the story as well. DaCosta relocated to London to start work on the forthcoming drama Hedda, which stars Tessa Thompson from the Creed and Thor franchises, while the MCU picture was still in post-production. According to the insider, “it’s kind of weird for the director to leave with a few months to go if you’re directing a $250 million movie.” Previously, DaCosta acknowledged handing up The Marvels to Marvel head Kevin Feige, about whom she had some reservations when she first agreed to work on the project.
The Marvels is almost ready for release on November 10th, having already been postponed twice. Originally, it was scheduled to coincide with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, but it was then shifted from July to November to allow the team more time to polish the film. In addition to the production problems, The Marvels has drawn criticism from the internet before its premiere. Brie Larson, who plays Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel in the film again, has apparently become “disillusioned” with her role. The Marvels is predicted to gross between $70 million and $80 million domestically in its first weekend of release, which is a reasonable box office prediction. That range, however, is just around half of what Captain Marvel did in its first three days of business. The 2019 film, which was well-received by critics, grossed over $1.13 billion in its first weekend of release, earning $153.4 million. The Marvels will need to generate a lot of revenue to cover their substantial $275 million budget. Alongside Teyonah Parris (Monica Rambeau), Iman Vellani (Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel), Zawe Ashton (Dar-Benn), and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) in The Marvels, Larson plays a supporting role. The focus of the sequel is on Carol, Monica, and Kamala’s enigmatic power fusion while they explore a wormhole connected to the Kree.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
