The Downfall of Marvel

Originally Printed in the November 2023 Issue of The Jaguar Journal

Over the years, Marvel has become one of the best known movie franchises in the world. It all started with the Avengers, featuring Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Thor, and Hawkeye. Many of the characters had their own movies before the first Avengers film back in 2012. Since then, there have been three more films in the series, all incredible. But eventually, all good things have to come to an end. Tony Stark, known as Iron Man, died in the climactic battle with Thanos. Captain America and Hawkeye retired from the Avengers, and Hulk went M.I.A.

Ever since Avengers: Endgame, the storylines for all of the shows have been extremely questionable to say the least. Some examples are Eternals, Secret Invasion, She-Hulk, Doctor Strange: Multi-Verse of Madness, and What If.

One thing that all of these shows have in common, is they all have not lived up to the hype. Therefore making it one of the main reasons why Marvel has fallen. Take Doctor Strange: Multi-Verse of Madness for example. Dr. Strange teams up with a teen girl who can travel across the multiverse, battling his doppelgangers who threaten millions of lives. He needs the help of the Scarlet Witch, who wants to kill countless people to get her children back. It was supposed to be added to the storyline of Spider-Man: No Way Home, but while stretching the storyline out may have been a good idea at the time it ended up being the reason why the storyline was so controversial.

The CGI has gotten significantly worse over the years. Sometimes, it is unnoticeable, but in others it makes the content extremely difficult to be engaged with. Some examples of bad CGI are Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumania, She-Hulk, and Doctor-Strange: Multiverse of Madness. In Ant-Man, the CGI was noticeably bad, to put it lightly. While the storyline wasn’t awful it wasn’t enough to save the film. The CGI in many of the scenes looked very low effort and sloppy. Yes, it was underfunded due to the fact that the funds were being moved into Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but even with low funds, Marvel should have put more of an effort towards the CGI in this film.

Yes, there are many “cons” to the material that Marvel has released throughout recent years, but it hasn’t all been bad. In Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Marvel spent a lot of their time, money, and effort. That turned out to be one of the better movies when it was released, as in total the movie got $859.2 million and positive reviews from critics. That wasn’t the only good part of Marvel as of recently, the Spider-Man series featuring Tom Holland has been a shining example of Marvel’s quality.
