Has Marvel Fallen Off?

Marvel… that’s a name you’ve probably heard when talking about superheroes. It’s grown to be a household name. Ironman, Hulk, Captain America. Those are all very popular superheroes that are associated with Marvel.


Many people agree that Marvel is great but recently the quality has seemed to have gotten worse. Freshman student Peyton Shaw stated, “After Venom 2, Marvel movies went woo womp. All the other movies SUCK!”


Shaw’s opinion made me think about what my other peers thought. So, I created a poll for people to share their Marvel opinions on, and the majority of people agree that Marvel movies aren’t good anymore.


Freshman Bella Thomas says, “I really liked Guardians of the Galaxy 2 because Groot is cute and Drax’s laugh is funny. Captain America Winter Soldier is good too. Overall if you are looking for diversity, then Marvel is for you.”


In my opinion, Marvel quality has deteriorated greatly. People used to get bangers like EndgameInfinity War, and even the entire Iron Man trilogy. All of these movies have an average rating of a whopping 84.8% out of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. 


Marvel movies that come out today usually don’t get anywhere near these numbers. The Marvels which came out late last year had a 62% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. When compared to Iron Man, for example, the difference is clear.


There is also the problem of CGI. Most people who watch modern Marvel movies can agree that the quality is just plain bad. Marvel has been focusing too much on quantity over quality. The issue has become so controversial that even the creator of the MCU, Kevin Feige, had to say something about the current state of Marvel. He acknowledged the fact that the studio has been focusing on quantity over quality and he is finally going to do something about it.


Hopefully Kevin can do something to fix the current issue of Marvel before it is completely unfixable. I and many others alike would love to see a rebooted Marvel Universe because, at this point, a fresh start may be what is needed the most.
