Brie Larson is unquestionably one of the most talented actresses in all of Hollywood right now. She made a name for herself in films such as RoomScott Pilgrim v.s. The WorldShort Term 12, and more. Unfortunately, her role in Captain Marvel has become a black spot in an otherwise spotless resume, with The Marvels’ failure at the Box Office adding salt to the wounds Even then, Larson fans are in denial about the film’s failure.


Brie Larson began her career in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, which received mixed responses from fans and critics alike. It never got any better for her, as her role as Captain Marvel took a downward spiral with each appearance – The Marvels being the final nail in the coffin.

The Marvels Was A Spectacular Failure At The Box Office

The Marvels starring Brie Larson, Iman Vellani, and Teyonah Parris were released on November 10th, 2023. Despite the high-profile cast, the film didn’t really set the world on fire in any way, which was a sign that fans were just done with anything related to Marvel – with Captain Marvel’s character bearing the brunt of the damage.

As per Variety, the film made the record for the lowest-grossing domestic weekend opening for any Marvel movie in history, as it crossed just $47 million domestically. It also has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 62% and IMDB of 6/10, making it somewhat above average but not a worthwhile watch whatsoever.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie received a 78-80% drop-off in its second weekend at the box office, making it the worst drop of any Hollywood superhero movie ever. The film also finally ended its run this week, as it is now officially the lowest-grossing Marvel film in history.

Brie Larson Fans Clutched At Straws Trying To Defend The Marvels‘ Failure

Despite the glaring flaws in the movie and abysmal Box Office record, there are still some Marvel stans, notably Brie Larson fans, who defend the movie no matter what. In fact, one pro-Brie Larson fan took to Twitter and commented on a post which noted how the movie is the lowest-grossing Marvel film in history.

The fan noted that the film will be the only MCU film in history to be affected by the SAG-AFTRA strike, claiming that the strike is the reason for the film’s failure – which many felt was a pathetic excuse at best. Other people on Twitter understandably went after the fan for this, calling them out for being in denial so much.



It’s become apparent that Marvel has to think of a new plan for their next slew of movies if they want to capture fan attention again. Regardless, The Marvel Cinematic Universe is in a terrible state right now, so we’ll have to see if they will be able to fix their issues soon.
