This film, which also featured Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, wasn’t that well-received by the fans of the franchise, despite having a great box office run. But now, it seems like the sentiments have changed, as more fans have come forward to defend this film and claim that it was a lot better than how people remember it.

It’s hard to satisfy everyone, as they say, which is more than evident in the entertainment industry where the audience has varied tastes and likings. In the superhero space, the biggest name right now is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has some of the highest grossing films of all time under it’s belt.

Yet catering to the fans isn’t an easy job, which is something that the franchise learned the hard way when many of its films started to underperform at the box office with each subsequent movie. For example, Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

The film also starring Elizabeth Olsen was not received as expected by Marvel Studios, at least on the critical scale, though it did fairly well for itself on the commercial front, earning $955 million at the box office. But now, fans who have got the chance to revisit or have decided to give their opinions on the film have claimed it wasn’t as bad as it was claimed by most.

Many also claim that the negative reviews that were left for the film made everyone else’s preconception of it just as negative, which stayed with them even while watching the film in theatres, creating a negative bias for most of the audience.

And now, fans have conflicting opinions on the internet about how the film was and whether it was actually bad or just misunderstood.

What Do the Fans Have to Say About This?
