Brie Larson’s The Marvels Said To Be Terrible, A Joke
Leaks for the upcoming Brie Larson-led, The Marvels, have stated that too much humor might ruin this movie.
Marvel’s Phase Five is upon us, and a number of upcoming releases are slated for this year. Some chatter on Twitter has fans concerned about one of the releases: The Marvels. According to a BGR article, there have been a number of leaks about the upcoming film and Brie Larson’s new look. One recent thread of Twitter posts from user @homeofmcu containing alleged leaks has fans concerned about the tone and quality of the film.
Please be advised that this article may contain spoilers for the upcoming The Marvels movie.
Marvel fans like @itsBarreda expressed their concern about the alleged comedic, light tone of Brie Larson’s The Marvels film based on part of the content of the alleged leak from Twitter user @homeofmcu. The leak predicts that the film will have a strong comedic tone.
It also predicts a new look for Monic Rambeau and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel.
The leaker predicts that the comedic levels will be “beyond that” of 2022’s Thor: Love and Thunder.
The leaker also mentioned a post-credits scene that features Simone Ashley, a high-tech wheelchair, and the X-Men theme music.
For many fans, this will be a lot to take in. Concerning the tone, it might not come as a surprise to many given the tone of the Ms. Marvel television show on Disney+. The series had a decidedly younger tone than some of its counterparts, and that seems to be carrying over to the film.
Ms. Marvel ended with a surprisingly impactful post-credits scene that sees Kamala Khan and Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers switching places: Kamala is zapped away from the comforts of her home into the unknown, while Carol Danvers appears out of nowhere in the Khan residence. Ms. Marvel set up the connection between Kamala Khan’s power-giving bangles and the Kree. The Kree also featured heavily in Captain Marvel, so it certainly would not be a stretch of the imagination to think that they may again be involved in The Marvels.
Marvel has taken on a comedic tone in its features before, with the Thor and The Guardians of the Galaxy franchises both praised for using comedy to great effect. The skepticism could be tied to one of the film’s leads Brie Larson, whose tenure as Captain Marvel some Marvel fans have found an issue with. Despite the hotly contentious release of Captain Marvel, it ended up becoming one of Marvel’s best sellers and bringing home over 1.1 billion at the box office.
This concern over the comedic tone is in a similar vein to the backlash against Ms. Marvel and recently She-Hulk, both woman-led series that eschewed a more serious tone for a more whimsical one and were lambasted by some fans and praised by others for it. The movie will bring together a trio of familiar faces, including Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, Iman Vellani’s Ms. Marvel, and Teyonah Parris’s Monica Rambeau.
Brie Larson’s The Marvels is scheduled to release this summer on July 28, 2023. Part of Marvel’s Phase 5, the film follows the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in February and Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3 in May.
Marvel’s Phase Five seems to be connecting several threads from Phase Four, with the most important being the emergence of Kang the Conqueror’s role as Marvel’s next big bad. Played by Jonathan Majors and first appearing in the series Loki as a Variant of himself, Kang the Conqueror seems to be the driving force behind Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania, where Kang is slated to play the major villain. The events of that film will likely have impactful ramifications on the rest of the films in Phase Five and beyond, including The Marvels.
