Is it possible for a movie to bomb despite taking the #1 spot at the box office?  Somehow, The Marvels managed to do both.

The movie drew $47 million in its opening weekend for an easy first place – but that total makes it the worst opening ever for an MCU movie.

By comparison, Marvel’s other two 2023 films, Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 both drew more than $100 million in their opening weekends.

Elsewhere, Five Nights at Freddy’s finished second with $9 million, while Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour took third with $5.9 million.

The Priscilla Presley biopic Priscilla ($4.79 million) and Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon ($4.6 million) rounded out the top five.

Why did The Marvels disappoint?  What does the MCU need to change to stay relevant?
