The premiere of Ms Marvel on Disney + has not been exactly as expected. The data speaks for itself: it is the worst premiere of the UCM.
The arrival of mrs marvel a Disney+ It has been one of the most curious events of the year. Although fans of kamala khan In the vignettes we were delighted with its confirmation as a solo project and its subsequent television adaptation, it seems that this time we have been left somewhat alone. At least in comparison. It seems that the UCM already has its first big failure on the streaming platform since the darling began Phase 4 of the studio. The adventures of Kamala Khan from the hand of Iman Vellani They have not had the expected reception and the data is slightly worrying.
According to data reports that have emerged, the audience for the premiere of mrs marvel It reflects the lowest debut yet for a live-action MCU series on Disney+. It barely enjoyed 775,000 views in the United States during the first five days. To give you an idea of the “slump” that this entails with respect to other studio products, the premiere of WandaVision enjoyed a total of 1.6 million US views, while the Hawk Eye reached 1.5 million North American views.
It should not worry that Kamala Khan’s debut has been so weak
Despite mrs marvel has become the biggest failure of the UCM since the streaming window began, that does not mean that the series is a bad adaptation or Kamala Khan a lousy character. Quite the contrary. There are many factors for this “slump” in the data from the study chaired by Kevin Feig. The first of them is that he is a tremendously unknown character, but also a teenager. Not everyone wants to see a markedly ‘teen’ series as is the case with the Iman Vellani series.
Secondly, mrs marvel It has not been immune to sociocultural rejection due to the religious tendency of the protagonist. Ultimately, it is the story of a Muslim woman in America. It is impossible to demarcate the cultural roots of Kamala Khan within the UCM and for this reason the series has suffered the odd boycott recently, as was the case with an aggressive ‘review-bombing’ that could have hindered its premiere. Be that as it may, time will put Kamala in her place. We are sure of it.
