The Marvels Review | The MCU Returns to Having Some Lighthearted Fun

The Marvels is the biggest risk of the MCU since the release of Avengers: Endgame. Not only is the movie a sequel to 2019's Captain Marvel, but it also picks up on plot points from two Disney+ shows, WandaVision and Ms. Marvel (don't worry, they wisely pretend Secret Invasion did not happen and that's fine; the less said about it, the better). It also has to deal with a wave of toxic fan criticism against star Brie Larson that has been permeating for years. Not to mention needing to bear the weight of the massive expectations following not only a year of many significantly disappointing superhero movies at the box office, but many fans turning on the MCU after lackluster installments like Moon Knight, Thor: Love and Thunder, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and Secret Invasion.
