Bob Iger is back playing the blame game, this time in regards to The Marvels being such a huge failure.
The flick is the worst-performing MCU movie at the box office and suffered the worst drop of any superhero film in existence.
Bob Iger recently attended the DealBook Summit 2023 where The Verge points out Bob Iger didn’t blame the actors not being able to promote The Marvels due to the strike for the poor box office performance.
The site also laughable says Iger didn’t “blame the weird hatred of the film driven by sexism coming from a small and vocal cadre of Marvel fans upset over a film helmed by three women” (note: women didn’t go see the movie, the fanboys showed up).
So if the actor’s strike isn’t to blame and you can’t blame men, what do you blame? Covid.
“The Marvels was shot during Covid, and there wasn’t enough supervision on set,” said Iger.
Iger also said to blame is the large volume of content being created that makes it more difficult to maintain quality, which is something he previously said when he revealed they are pulling back on Marvel.
However, we all know this is just more Bob Iger spin as Kevin Feige is apparently clueless when it comes to Marvel in addition to injecting politics into the content, which ruins everything. Marvel also doesn’t have creatives such as James Gunn and the Russos anymore. Feige’s Phase 4 and Phase 5 have been a big mess but Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy 3 was the best to come out of it, which proves the point.
The director of The Marvels, Nia DaCosta, also threw Feige under the bus when she said, “It is a Kevin Feige production, it’s his movie.”
