The Marvels is in theaters, and we’re breaking down all the big moments and MCU fallout on our podcast review. When Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, and Monica Rambeau (codename TBD) get entangled, they start switching bodies and fun ensues. But don’t worry, there’s also a plot involving bad guy Dar-Benn, the Kree, some wormhole things, and of course some big teases for what’s coming forward.
…And since we taped this two weekends in, we also know that The Marvels plummeted at the box office. We discuss why we think the movie is imploding, at least when it comes to box office receipts, and what this might mean for the MCU going forward. Plus, how Marvel Studios can pivot off the teases in the pre- and post-credits scenes.
