    Despite several setbacks, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has not slowed down. With the decreased quality of the storyline, problematic VFX, and superhero fatigue, the fans have grown tired of their beloved superhero film.

    While speaking with the Hollywood Reporter, the Disney CEO revealed that he has made several calls and was also forced to cut off several projects, keeping in mind the integrity of the brand. Bob Iger said, “I’ve been spending a lot of time with the creators, watching these films, giving detailed notes in these films, engaging in a respectful process that results in improvement.”

    Although the Disney boss does not support the idea of superhero fatigue, instead he addresses the true nightmare for the franchise saying, “A lot of people think it’s audience fatigue. It’s not audience fatigue.”

    He further added, “They want great films. And if you build it great, they will come and there are countless examples of that. Some are ours and some are others’. Oppenheimer is a perfect example of that. Just a fantastic film. Focus is really important. We reduced the output of Marvel, both number of films they make and the number of TV shows, and that really becomes critical, but I feel good about the team. I feel good about the IP we’re making. I talked about a lot of the projects. We look years ahead, really. And it’s iterative. And again, the track record speaks for itself.”

    The Disney CEO asked the fans to lay down their criticism and instead focus on the process behind it. Observing the process of filmmaking, Bob Iger said, “Who the directors are, who’s being cast, reading scripts, I personally watch films three to five times with the team and just create a culture of excellence and respect, which is really important with the creative community.”

    As the fans have acknowledged the decline in the quality of MCU films, they stand by Iger’s statement, praising him for the strategies he has considered.

    While Iger’s promises look convincing, there are still a lot of elements that the MCU has to consider. Meanwhile, fans are excited for ‘Deadpool and Wolverine‘ to hit the big screens on 26 July 2024.
