The Marvel Cinematic Universe is expected to get its 33rd movie later this year with the release of The Marvels slated for November 10. However, despite anticipation for the new installment, fans have reason to believe the film could flop at the box office. With the recent release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and the highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 set to hit theaters in May, it’s possible that Brie Larson’s The Marvels could be the lowest box office success for Marvel this year.

Just last week, Marvel hit fans with the highly anticipated Ant-Man threequel. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, reaped massive success at the box office, despite receiving dismal reviews from moviegoers. On opening day alone the film grossed over $46 million. 

To date, the film has reaped a massive $225 million globally, making it a win at the box office even if it was initially hit with poor reviews from fans and critics alike. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’s opening day has been the largest of the year thus far. Less than two months into the year and Marvel Studios has already had a massive success.

With Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania already released, fans now get to turn to the highly anticipated threequel to the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. Writer for Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn, has promised longtime fans of the films that the newest installment will wrap up with an epic conclusion while also opening up the stage for the franchise’s future. 

Fans have not gotten to enjoy a new installment for six years, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 released in 2017. That has allowed years of excitement to build up as we await Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to make its way to theaters later this year. Many expect people to come out in droves for the final entry for the franchise.

For Marvel fans, the prospect of getting three large movies in 2023 is exciting. It also means that Brie Larson’s The Marvels may come out behind at the box office. The film is part of Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is expected to follow the events set forth in Ms. Marvel from 2022.

The Marvels is slated to have a star-studded lineup with Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Iman Vellani (Ms. Marvel), Teyonah Parris (Monica Rambeau), and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury) starring in the film. The film’s premise is set to follow Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, and Monica Rambeau as they try to find out why they keep swapping palaces every time they use their powers. 

Despite many speculating over the years that Marvel has gone into a flop era, recent films have been finding success at the box office. Recently, the studio has been trying to revitalize the Marvel Cinematic Universe and while it’s too early yet to know the future of the franchise, fans have been excited to see what is coming next.

Many are anxiously awaiting the release of Brie Larson’s The Marvels. While the film is sure to be a success, with the overwhelming outpour of people to see Quantumania and the buzz surrounding Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, it’s possible the film will pale in comparison.
