Director Nia DaCosta is aware of this, but obviously assures The Marvels is different.
Are audiences getting tired of superhero movies? There tired superhero, as we say in the United States, will she take with her Batman, Captain America and the others? When will this whole system implode, like what happened to the western in the past? Vast questions that have agitated the industry for a decade, while the success of Marvel and DC did not seem to be denied. But recently, the superheroic genre has lost its luster and spectators are less and less present in theaters (too many perfectly similar films?). ” Audience fatigue with superhero movies is real “, assures Nia DaCosta (Little Woods and the recent reboot of candy man), director of The Marvelsin an interview with Total Movie. But the filmmaker ensures, of course, that her feature film will avoid the pitfalls into which the others have fallen. ” The biggest difference from other MCU movies to date is that The Marvels is really goofy and silly. The worlds we explore in this film have nothing to do with what pre-existed in the MCU. Well here.
In a recent interview, James Gunn also explained that the tired superhero exists, but it has nothing to do with superheroes themselves. ” It has to do with the kinds of stories that are told in the movies, and the forgetting of the characters. We love Superman. We love Batman. We love Iron Man. Because they are incredible characters who hold a special place in our hearts. And if there is only nonsense on the screen, it becomes really boring. »
The Marvels, with Brie Larson, Iman Vellani and Teyonah Parris, will be released on November 8 at the cinema. Trailer :
