    That looks fun. I think the power entanglement and place swapping is a fun idea.

    Said in the general thread, but I enjoyed that trailer. Looks like the kind of knockabout, goofball fun sorely missing from much of the recent MCU. The premise alone turned my head and hopefully the movie really makes imaginative use of it.

    First time in a while I've said "yeah, go on, you have my attention" to a MCU trailer.

    Iman Vellani just oozes charisma and I think will steal every scene she is in just like she did in the Ms Marvel series.

    Disney have found a real star in her.

    Disney just love losing money don't they.


    Looks terrible, not sure who target market is.

    they have reduced their audience going by that trailer to pre teen girls, you cant do that for a 200m movie.

    It looks a bit too silly. But sure we'll see.



  • Registered Users Posts: 134 ✭✭CWMMC


    This doesn't look like a Marvel movie ill be watching. It seems like they forgot what audience range they normally aim for.

    Looks fun.. most interested i've been in catching a Marvel movie in theatres for quite a while.

    Ms Marvel has been a very popular new character, and not like adults are immediately allergic to anything starring a teenager; if this reviews as being as fun as the trailer suggests, more likely it becomes a hit that arrests the slump.



  • Registered Users Posts: 32,274 ✭✭✭✭gmisk


    Or are they....

    Flerkens!!! Lol



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,926 ✭✭✭✭flazio


    It's aimed squarely at the Tom Holland Spider-Man fans with Kamala stepping into Peter Parkers shoes. Now I doubt it will reach Spider-Man numbers (be interesting to compare it with "Across the Spider-Verse" though.) but it should do OK.

    Nia DaCosta was on Blank Check this week chatting about Trance, but she was very candid speaking about her issues with the way a lot of modern blockbusters are filmed. She also said she’s openly spoken to Marvel bosses about some of the stuff she hasn’t liked in the MCU films, and went to town on Endgame’s infamous ‘female heroes assemble’ sequence. She’s an interesting choice for a film like this and a director I like, so I’m intrigued to see how she fares here. The MCU has defeated many directors before, of course, but hopefully she’ll find a particular groove like James Gunn or Taika Waititi (first time around… let’s ignore the second) did.

    I literally just finished that episode and was quite surprised how candidly she spoke of the MCU, to the extent I stopped what I was doing to make sure I heard her right. Not often you have someone do that before their film is even out!

    Brave move cos if this fails she'll be thrown under the bus quick enough, but it's a sign of her confidence in herself she basically criticised her employers' prior work without pause or diplomacy. By all accounts the trailer doesn't suggest something half àssed or without confidence, insofar as one can read into those things from a trailer.

    Why isn't it aimed at Captain Marvel fans 🤨



  • Registered Users Posts: 17,849 ✭✭✭✭silverharp


    The show was Disney's lowest viewed show in 2022, it doesnt scream high demand for a big budget movie?, though liked the opening lines of the Beastie Boys song "Well now, dont you tell me to smile"


    Ms. Marvel is the least-watched Marvel series on Disney+, according to reports.

    The show, which has the highest score of any Marvel Studios series so far on Rotten Tomatoes at 95 per cent, has recorded the lowest viewership in its opening five days.

    According to Samba TV, 775,000 US households watched the premiere of Ms. Marvel in the first five days following its release on June 8.

    In comparison, Loki earned the biggest opening numbers with 2.5million. This is followed by Moon Knight and The Falcon And The Winter Soldier at 1.8million, WandaVision at 1.6million and Hawkeye with 1.5million.

    Looks fun!


    Also, @Agent Coulson, you're back from Tahiti! 😁

    The low viewership was put down to being brought out on the same day and time as the business end of Obi-Wan Kenobi, which had a 3 week head start. Disney+ made adjustments and brought out She-Hulk on Thursdays instead of a Wednesdays so that the same wouldn't happen between She-Hulk and Andor. In my opinion Ms Marvel was one of the better Phase 4 projects, very Shang Chi in tone.

    "in it's opening five days" is a pretty important qualifier there. Which makes sense as a new character few people knew anything about, and with other shows up against it in those opening couple of days too. But the reviews and word of mouth have been great, so I'd imagine by this stage it's picked up plenty of fans.

    People were critical of Ms. Marvel before it was even released. Some not liking the teen side of it, some not liking the change in powers and even some not liking it due to the race and culture portrayed.

    I really enjoyed it and going by this trailer it seems Ms Marvel's upbeat personality is intact. I believe the word is adorkable?

    Now if they manage to give Captain Marvel a personality she didn't have for the 5 seconds she appeared in the previous ensemble movies, they'll be doing well.

    Still looks like an eminently fun premise; let's hope they actually have some goofy, exciting set pieces using the idea of body swapping and it isn't just abandoned halfway in for generic hand lasers.

    Anyone liked Ms.Marvel? I don't have any expectations for this team[marvels]. There is some connection with Secret invasion, Right?



  • Registered Users Posts: 31,217 ✭✭✭✭~Rebel~


    Haven't seen Secret Invasion yet, but I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Marvel. One of the better shows for me, good coming-of-age superhero fun.
