The Downfall of Marvel:

Writers Making Lazy Efforts

The minute Tony Stark snapped his fingers in Avengers End Game, the Marvel industry took a turn for the worse. 

One by one, our favorite characters shared their last moments on screen. This change didn’t happen gradually, but almost all in this one movie, leaving us with a lot to think about while leaving the theater. 

However, the loss of these heroes wasn’t the worst part, but when Disney attempted to replace the characters we grew up with. 

In the past few years, Disney has been throwing out teasers of what’s to come in the next few years, including a spinoff of Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and many others.

There is a noticeable pattern, as all of these teasers include a female versions of the heroes we have come to love. For example, the new Marvel’s She-Hulk TV show felt uninspired in its script and storyline which the lesser known female character didn’t deserves as she has been around since 1979.

 It is understandable that Disney is taking strides to be more inclusive. However, he lackluster quality leave many fans dissapointed and angry with the franchise. 

The original comic characters are often more carefully designed inside and out, and it just doesn’t feel like that same work is being put into their TV adaptations. 

The oversaturation of new Marvel content on Disney Plus is beginning to feel overdone. Now almost everything Marvel is coming out with feels shallow and inauthentic. 

Even for the new characters it’s not as easy to connect to them as it felt for the originals. 

When it came to the old Marvel, people weren’t just watching their favorite heroes save cities. They could connect and relate to them almost as if they were real people, without feeling scripted. 

Without that connection to the characters, it’s hard become invested in the movies. 

As this goes on, Marvel continues to lose more and more supporters, leaving them in the dust.
