‘The Marvels’ Failure Returns To Haunt MCU Character Whose Solo Project Is Reportedly Cancelled

‘The Marvels’ broke several unflattering records on release. It is currently the lowest-grossing MCU movie and the only movie not to break the $100 Million mark at the domestic box office.

The movie was mostly criticized due to having a bland and uninspiring story, but the negative publicity surrounding it started way before it was even released.

The failure was so significant that Bob Iger commented on it, admitting that the quality wasn’t the greatest and that the studio has to change something going forward. ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ is the only project scheduled to be released in 2024, the studio is currently focusing on quality over quantity as several projects in development are being “reconsidered.” Feige wants to focus on “sure hits” instead of launching no franchises that he is not certain to what extent fans will accept.

It seems that Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau found herself in the crossfire. According to most recent claims made by Daniel Richtman, Monica Rambeau aka Photon was supposed to get a standalone Disney+ project, but following the record-low box office and critical reception, the project was canceled and her story will continue in subsequent MCU projects that won’t be standalone.

This is just one in a line of rumored canceled projects that got the axe following the studios’ change in strategy. Recently we’ve covered that ‘Captain Marvel 3’ and ‘Ant-Man 4’ likely won’t be moving forward, there’s also talk of ‘Eternals 2’ being scrapped and redeveloped as different project.

Teyonah Parris recently commented on ‘The Marvels’ failure, saying that it isn’t fair that the movie was criticized by people who never planned on watching it or giving it a shot.

I would hope that people would give it a fair shot by just seeing it or trying it. If you don’t like the first 10, 15 minutes, fair enough. Your time is precious. But we make these films so that it can be an escape from your real world in a moment for levity and joy and fantasticalness. You do not have to like something, but give it a chance by actually seeing it and forming your own opinion. And if you did, then that’s fair. That’s how you feel, and I cannot take that from you.
