The Marvels: Shocking Rotten Tomatoes Score; A Surprising Place To Draw Inspiration From!

MOVIE NEWS – Rotten Tomatoes scores of The Marvels were revealed when the first reviews were released. For now, the Captain Marvel sequel has a lot to offer…



The Rotten Tomatoes score of The Marvels was revealed when the first reviews were released. (Ours doesn’t have to wait long, either; it arrives today.) While many critics have praised the Captain Marvel sequel, that’s not enough to keep the film from debuting with one of the MCU’s lowest Rotten Tomatoes scores right now.

Captain Marvel 2 had a rough run before its release: while Captain Marvel was a $1 billion box office hit, The Marvels’ box office projections dropped just days before release, an unusual and ominous sign for the sequel.

Some hoped that positive reactions would boost the film’s box office prospects. However, according to the first reviews, this may not be the case.

As of the morning of November 9, the title’s Rotten Tomatoes rating is 59% based on 133 reviews. Although The Marvels’ score fluctuated throughout the day, it generally hovered around 54%. As of now, the film’s Rotten Tomatoes score is currently behind all other MCU movies, with the rare exceptions of Ant-Man 3 (46%) and Eternals (47%), which received negative reviews. The Rotten Tomatoes score is likely to change in the coming days. But after so much criticism, it is questionable whether he has a chance to improve.

Given that positive reviews could have boosted interest in The Marvels and reversed low revenue projections, this Rotten Tomatoes score is a worrying sign.

Fans believe that Marvel Studios is aware of the problem. According to some, recent promotional material for the film has focused on the Avengers and the possible MCU debut of the X-Men. However, many fans believe that the spotlight should be on Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers, Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau, and Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan. A superhero movie with three female leads, let alone two of them being women of colour, is unheard of. Unfortunately, Marvel Studios seems to believe that it’s the Avengers and mutants that should entice audiences.

Could The Marvels have been inspired by Final Fantasy animation?!


Final Fantasy 7 is a work of great influence. Marvel director Nia DeCosta seems to have taken inspiration from the animated sequel to Advent Children when making the upcoming superhero blockbuster. Before Final Fantasy 7 Remake offered an expanded look at Square Enix’s landmark JRPG, the story of Cloud Strife and friends continued in Compilation of Final Fantasy 7. It was an expanded universe based on the original story, consisting of games, novels, and even a full-length feature film.

One of the biggest elements of this expanded universe was the animated film Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children, which was released in 2005.

Advent Children takes place two years after the events of the original Final Fantasy 7. It shows Cloud and the rest of Team AVALANCHE dealing with the consequences of Sephiroth’s machinations. Meanwhile, they investigate a mysterious disease that infects the children of Midgar. The film is highly regarded among Final Fantasy 7 fans for its stunning animations and lightning-fast action sequences. Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth director Tetsuya Nomura has hinted that the series will somehow connect to Advent Children.

Meanwhile, the upcoming MCU big guns, the Marvels, drew inspiration from Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children. At least according to the film’s director, Nia DeCosta. He recently spoke with IGN (via ) ahead of his film’s premiere this week, where he explained how he pitched the movie to Marvel Studios.

DeCosta described Advent Children as having “really great fight scenes and has a really great ending sequence”, in which Cloud is tossed into the sky by his companions in battle against the raging Bahamut SIN.

Although this and other scenes from Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children were a major inspiration for DeCosta’s Marvel bid, he also noted that he did not want the film to “look like a video game”. This is an all too common criticism of recent superhero movies and their action scenes. Regardless, DeCosta lists cutscenes from other games such as The Last of Us and Horizon Zero Dawn. He says that their cinematic nature inspires him to play with them and make movies like the Marvels, which will be shown in domestic cinemas from today.
