Marvel decline continues

The decline in viewership with Loki Season 2 also fits with Kevin Feige’s approach to Phase 4 and Phase 5 which has seen a big decline.

Just recently saw The Marvels absolutely bomb at the box office, the worst-performing MCU and superhero movie of all time. Quantumania also bombed big time so much so that writers have been fired and rumors offer Kang will be replaced as the MCU’s big villain. Thor: Love and Thunder is also another bomb, with the film’s director coming out and revealing he didn’t even like the character.

The rest of the Marvel Disney+ shows are also said to be in hot water as Daredevil: Born Again is getting retooled, Ironheart has been yanked from the release schedule, and rumors have offered the upcoming Echo series is also bad and is the reason all the episodes are getting released at once, a first for Marvel. Following the big failure of Secret Invasion on Disney+, it has also been reported Marvel TV is getting an overhaul.

As a result of Kevin Feige’s poor performance, Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed Disney is pulling back on Marvel.
