A Marvel Movie Review

Updated: Jul 4, 2023

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has become one of the most successful movie franchises of all time. Since the release of Iron Man in 2008, the MCU has grown to include over 20 movies, with more on the way. The movies have been praised for their strong characters, exciting action, and interconnected storylines.


One of the strengths of the Marvel movies is their characters. From Iron Man to Captain America to Black Panther, the Marvel movies have introduced a wide variety of heroes that are all unique and interesting. The casting has been spot-on, with actors like Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, and Scarlett Johansson bringing their A-game to each movie.


The action in the early Marvel movies is also top-notch. The fight scenes are well choreographed and exciting, and the early phase special effects are impressive. The movies also have a great sense of humor, with witty one-liners and comedic moments that keep the audience laughing throughout. Which was ok in the beginning.


While the  movies have been criticized for being formulaic, they have also been praised for their consistency. The movies have a certain style and tone that is consistent throughout, and they have been able to maintain this consistency while still introducing new characters and storylines.


So where did it actually gone wrong? The success of the formulaic consistency was actually their problem I believe.However, like any large franchise, the MCU has had its fair share of troubles and controversies.


One of the biggest controversies in the MCU has been the issue of diversity and representation. While the franchise has introduced a number of diverse characters, including Black Panther and Captain Marvel, there has been criticism that these characters are not given enough screen time or development. There has also been criticism of the lack of LGBTQ+ representation in the franchise.


Another issue in the MCU has been the departure of key actors and directors. Robert Downey Jr., who played Iron Man, and Chris Evans, who played Captain America, have both left the franchise, leaving a void in the core Avengers team. Additionally, directors like James Gunn, who directed the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, have been fired or left the franchise due to controversial tweets or creative differences.


The COVID-19 pandemic has also had an impact on the MCU, with several movies and TV shows being delayed or postponed. This has caused frustration among fans who were eagerly anticipating the release of these projects.


Despite these troubles, the MCU has introduced new characters and storylines that have kept fans engaged. Marvel has also made efforts to address the issues of diversity and representation, with the movie Eternals featuring a diverse cast and the TV show Loki introducing a gender-fluid character.


In conclusion, while the MCU has had its share of troubles and controversies, it still has been struggling to be the successful franchise that has been in the past. They have introduced new characters and storylines trying to keep the fans engaged. The new characters however are showing no interest to fans as of yet. It will be interesting to see how the franchise continues to evolve in the coming years.
