Despite the mediocre performances of Thor: Love and Thunder and Ms. Marvel, the hype for the following roster of the MCU is going to grow tenfold after all the SDCC 2022 announcements. This is where we are also supposed to get updates for The Marvels. But before Kevin Feige reveals it at Comic-Con, we’ve got scoops from several trusted industry insiders that could make fans angry. If these scoops are to be believed, then The Marvels will be a musical, or at least parts of it will be!
Recently during her Weekly Movie Math Episode, Grace Randolph from Beyond the Trailer stated that The Marvels has a very silly aspect. She didn’t spoil what it was, but she did share her reaction to it. She said:
“I’d also like to add there are non-Marvel superhero stories out there right now that are blowing our socks off. We got The Boys, The Batman, which are more serious and adult as Marvel gets more silly and family focused. I just heard something about The Marvels which was so silly that I was shocked it wasn’t in the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I was like, ‘What’s that doing in The Marvels?’
I mean, I think that some movies should be silly and are very successfully silly but I don’t think they should all be silly. Some people felt Thor: Love and Thunder was too silly. So… I don’t know, man. I mean, it’s hard to eat vanilla all the time no matter how good it is, no matter how many great specs of vanilla bean are in it, you don’t want to eat vanilla every week and that’s how much they’re serving it these days…
I like Thor: Love and Thunder from a fan perspective but business-wise and from a filmmaking perspective – oh, yeah – it’s got major problems. I want the four hour cut but Taika Waitit says ‘he will never deliver it,’ but then why did he film it? Is he like, ‘Yeah, I just wasted a lot of money filming additional two hours of content and hiring talent that I didn’t use.’ I mean I don’t think that’s the support of Disney that he thinks it is.”
She didn’t want to reveal the silly aspect, but it has been revealed by MCU insiders and Scoopers on Twitter. Geeks Worldwide editor-in-chief KC Walsh tweeted whether anybody had heard about the unique musical element in The Marvels. He wrote:
“Anyone else hearing that The Marvels has a “musical” element to it?”
Twitter user @UpToTASK then tweeted:
“Yea they go to a planet where they can only communicate in song.”
Insider @MyTimeToShineH also corroborated this claim. She wrote:
“Yes it’s true The Marvels is a musical (in parts).”
Brie Larson began her career as a professional pop star in 2005 as she even launched an album. So, we might just get to see her sing along with others. Again, it is something unique that Marvel wants to do. They’ve covered several genres within their superhero house as Doctor Strange 2 treaded in the horror territory while Thor: Love and Thunder was a rom-com. Now it seems we’ll also get a musical element in Ms. Marvel.
Grace Randolph is right. This element doesn’t really deserve to be in The Marvels, which is supposed to be a serious movie. Instead, it would have fit perfectly in the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. But what are your thoughts on it all? Let us know in the comments.
