The Marvel Cinematic Universe is home to several unique and outstanding superheroes and villains who know how to entertain the audience. One of them is Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel as her portrayal of one of the strongest characters in Marvel captured the attention of the fans, making her one of the most renowned faces in the film industry. There’s no doubt that the actress has acting chops as she won an Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in Room.

However, ever since day 1 the appointment of the Don Jon actress in the MCU has been met with hate and criticism from a majority of the MCU fans. Moreover, concerns do not stop for Kevin Feige as Brie Larson’s upcoming project The Marvels is not heading in the right direction as the film has little to no hype. As a result, the pre-ticket sales of the Captain Marvel sequel are at an all-time low and it is the worst in the new era.

Is Brie Larson’s The Marvels Doomed To Fail?

One of the harshest realities for Marvel in 2023 is that their name itself can no longer attract heaps of attention as it did in the Infinity saga, as films after Avengers: Endgame have been a massive letdown. As a result, Brie Larson’s The Marvels has an all-time pre-ticket sales in the post-COVID era.

As per a tweet from Luiz Fernando, a box office insider, he has mentioned that Disney’s “lack of confidence” in the sequel is concerning. The Marvel Studios never considered postponing the sequel to 2024, despite the film being heavily affected by the strikes, suggesting that the studio has no confidence in the film.

“#Disney’s apparent lack of confidence in #TheMarvels is really giving me those #DarkPhoenix dejavus. It was already concerning that the studio never considered to push the blockbuster back to 2024 despite of the strikes, almost as they didn’t think the film was worth fighting for – or at least trying to.”

As a result, The Marvels have an all-time low pre-ticket sales, showcasing that the Marvel fans are not at all interested in the sequel. The low ticket sales would equate to the film having a disappointing opening weekend. As per Box Office Pros, the upcoming film will earn somewhere between $50 to $75 million, and between $121 to $189 million in total domestically.

While this may come as a surprise the box office estimates of The Marvels make it a more disappointing watch than Eternals as the film had earned only $71.3 million in its opening weekend, but amassed a total of $164.8 million domestically. The sequel would be immensely lucky if it somehow manages to have an exciting weekend if it manages to come close to Ant-Man 3’s earnings at the opening weekend, that is, $106.1 million, earning a total of $214.5 million domestically.

Is Brie Larson’s Upcoming Sequel Going Down in The Flames?

While these numbers are merely rough estimates for The Marvels, it is for sure that Brie Larson’s upcoming film can no longer assure that the film will be a must-watch for ardent MCU fans. After the Infinity Saga two of the most promising films, that is, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania had let down the fans.

As a result, once backed by the unconditional support from their fans, Marvel has now lost their support as fans are now hesitant to watch another crossover event. While Marvel has created the most successful franchise in the history of cinema with the direction being lost, it is difficult to state if the long-term devoted MCU fans would turn up to see the sequel featuring Brie Larson, Iman Vellani, Park Seo-Joon, and many more popular faces.
