Disney CEO Bob Iger attributed recent failures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to a lack of on-set executive management, particularly during the peak of COVID.
This excuse comes in stark contrast to critics who claim the company is deliberating promoting left-wing propaganda that is crippling its creativity and success.
Iger emphasized the need to focus on the quality of upcoming projects over a high volume of movie production, acknowledging that “quantity diluted quality.” (Trending: Disgraced Democrat Sued For Sexual Assault)
Iger expressed plans to help the studio turn around creatively and stated that Marvel and Disney will prioritize a smaller selection of movies with superior quality.
“There wasn’t as much supervision on the set, so to speak, where we have executives there really looking over what’s being done day after day after day,” he said.
“I would say, right now, my No. 1 priority is to help the studio turn around creatively,” Iger added.
“The Marvels” generating a disappointing $47 million in November. This is the lowest-ever opening for an MCU movie.
Iger repeated Marvel and Disney as a whole will slow down the actual number of movies they produce in favor of a smaller selection with superior quality, IGN reported. But Iger insisted making sequels had nothing to do with the downward trajectory of the MCU.
“Some of them have done extraordinarily well, and they’ve been good films, too,” Iger said. “I think there has to be a reason to make them. You have to have a good story. And often the story doesn’t hold up to is not as strong as the original story. That can be a problem.”
He also highlighted the importance of strong storytelling for successful sequels.
These issues are prompting a reevaluation of the franchise’s approach.
