Madame Web‘s Edgy Trailer Pushes Fans to Reevaluate Morbius

Sony Entertainment along with Marvel recently released the first trailer of Madame Web starring Sydney Sweeney and Dakota Johnson. However, fans have come forward on social media such as Instagram and commented that the edgy tone of the movie reminded them of Marvel’s other box office failure, Morbius. The movie which was released in April 2022 has garnered a lot of criticism for its poor graphics and CGI.

Many fans have commented on social media about the trailer and said, “Maybe Morbius wasn’t that bad”, “Perhaps we judged it too harshly”, “My god that is the worst trailer I’ve ever seen. I feel like I’ve just watched the entire movie” and “They just be making anything at Sony”.

However, the film’s trailer was actually praised for its dark and edgy tone. After seeing the Madam Web trailer, many fans are currently saying that they judged Morbius too fast and that the movie is actually better than they imagined. Undoubtedly, the trailer deviates from the standard Marvel fare. The film is set in the Spider-Man universe and follows the story of Madame Web, a mutant with the ability to see the future.

The trailer features a number of dark and disturbing scenes and fans claim that it is a tonic change from the lighthearted and comedic tone of many Marvel films. Fans, however, have also attacked the tone, claiming that the clip is considerably worse than any other flop Marvel film, like Morbius. While it’s too soon to predict if Madame Web will succeed or fail, the teaser has undoubtedly created a lot of talk, and moviegoers are holding out much hope for the film.

Morbius Was a Critical Failure For Marvel Fans

Released in April 2022, Morbius proved to be a critical and commercial disaster for Sony Pictures, the company that holds the film rights to the Spider-Man brand. Critics criticized the movie for having a mediocre plot, uninteresting characters, and subpar CGI. Despite a $75 million production budget, it only made approximately $163 million globally, indicating a lackluster performance at the box office.

Morbius‘s failure was caused by a number of issues, including the movie’s uninspired and boring plot, which reviewers thought was lifted from prior superhero movies. Additionally, the characters in the movie lacked personality and were poorly developed, which made it hard for viewers to relate to them. Furthermore, the movie’s computer graphics received a lot of flak for being shoddy, particularly when compared to previous superhero movies.

Morbius‘s failure was a major blow to Sony’s plans to expand its Spider-Man film universe. The film was supposed to be the first of a planned series of movies based on Spider-Man villains, but its unfavorable reviews have cast doubt on such intentions. Even though Morbius was a commercial and critical failure, it maintains an internet cult following.

The movie’s trailer has gained popularity as a source of online entertainment, and fans have made memes and fan art honoring the movie’s alleged faults. Whether Sony will move forward with its ideas for a Morbius sequel or further movies centered around Spider-Man villains is still to be seen. But the film’s failure has certainly taught the studio a valuable lesson about the importance of creating films that are both critically acclaimed and commercially successful.

Madame Web will premiere at the theatres worldwide on 16 February 2024.
