The year 2019 marked the end of Marvel’s Infinity saga. A comic series adapting television later on, was a great success story. An incredible cinematic tale that has been going on for 21 years has released 29 films. Avengers: Endgame became the then highest-grossing film of all time, with a box office of around 2.8 billion dollars. However, are we seeing Marvel’s decline as of the current situation? Indeed, a fascinating topic to debate.
The first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are known as the Infinity Saga. Currently, we are in Phase Four of MCU. This phase is set to end later this year, with the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in November. This film will take the tally to seven movies released in Phase Four. Moreover, Phase Four had ten television series line up, of which three are yet to be released. However, many believe this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has started the decline of this significant franchise.
On paper, most of the films released in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been a flop considering Marvel standards. Black Widow, Shang-Chi, and Eternals all underperformed. However, we cannot blame the script, directions, or other film-related aspects for poor performance. We must understand that Phase Four coincided with Covid-19, and thus attendance at theatres was restricted. And the reviews were mostly positive about the underperforming films, so we can say that consistency has always been there.
As far as TV series are concerned, they were all very successful. Marvel released them on Disney’s OTT platform Disney+. According to analytics, all Marvel’s series hit the number one spot worldwide. So, the success of these series and the movies (if we give them some breath considering the pandemic) suggest that the MCU is far from dead. Critics say that the hype has got killed, and the recent introduction of too many unknown characters is playing against the franchise. But still, facts and numbers show that fans, hype, and success haven’t gone anywhere. Marvel is all set to shine post-pandemic, and Phase Five will be greater than ever. Our verdict, therefore, is that Marvel is not dying anytime soon
