I'll give it this much, I wasn't bored for a second.
There are MUCH worse Marvel films than this, but this is still pretty awful. I get why folks hate it so much, but I also think it's more of a symptom that people are tired of this formula than I think Disney realizes. Phase four of the MCU has really struggled to find a sense of identity and this is no exception. When it isn't constantly trying to make you laugh at jokes that fall on their face, it's setting the table for something that never comes to fruition or adds up to anything all that interesting.
I shit on these movies a lot, but it's mostly because I grew up with a lot of really amazing Marvel stuff and I think the brand deserves better than what we're looking at right now. There's a real sense of inauthenticity to this movie and I think that might be what brought folks together the most for their hatred of it.
Marvel has to start thinking of ways to reinvent themselves. Fast. I'd say that maybe taking a short break would benefit Disney in the long run, but you know just as well as I do, there's no stopping this train until it crashes, is there?
