New Disney movie “The Marvels” has performed heinously bad at the box office as audiences grow tired of ham-fisted woke premises in their content.
David A. Gross, who leads a movie consulting firm, Franchise Research Entertainment, said that these numbers represent “an unprecedented Marvel box-office collapse.”

‘THE MARVELS’ HAS THE WORST OPENING WEEKEND EVER FOR ANY FILM IN THE MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE
— Evan (@StockMKTNewz) November 12, 2023
“The Marvels” was a historic movie in other aspects besides its failure. It was the first Marvel super hero movie directed by a black woman, Nia DaCosta. Additionally, its three main stars, Bree Larson, Teyonah Parris and Iman Vellani, are all women as well.
DaCosta, of course, predictably whined about racism and sexism while giving promotional interviews for her turd of a flick.
“There are pockets where you go because you’re like, ‘I’m a super fan. I want to exist in the space of just adoration — which includes civilized critique,” explains DaCosta. “Then there are pockets that are really virulent and violent and racist — and sexist and homophobic and all those awful things. And I choose the side of the light. That’s the part of fandom I’m most attracted to.”
Big League Politics has reported on other times Hollywood lost money after pushing their political agenda too hard in entertainment media projects:
The superhero movie starring Margot Robbie as comic book heroine Harley Quinn grossed $13 million on Friday on 4,236 screens. It is projected to gross under $34 million for the entire weekend. It is set to have the worst-performing opening weekend for a movie based on DC Comics since “Jonah Hex” debuted with a dismal $5.3 million opening one decade ago.
Warner Bros. Pictures hoped to gross as much $55 million over the weekend, with $45 million being seen as a more conservative estimate for the film. The movie has feminist themes throughout the plot, and was promoted as a girl power movie that struck back against the patriarchy.
