Early Reactions Call ‘The Marvels’ “Crazy” and a Fun Time at the Movies, Praise Iman Vellani

Ahead of its wide release this weekend, The Marvels screened for select members of the media across the globe and at its own red carpet premiere yesterday. While the film is currently tracking to have a woeful opening weekend, there’s some hope that positive reviews and word of mouth may give it a boost. While full reviews are embargoed a bit longer, first reactions have hit social media and are–to nobody’s surprise–overwhelmingly positive.

The short run time is a big seller…

One of the dumbest social media trends of our time is to prejudge projects based on their runtime. The Marvels is officially the shortest entry in the MCU’s long history…and nobody that has seen it is complaining.

Iman Vellani is the truth…

Anyone who watched Marvel Studios Disney Plus streaming series Ms. Marvel knows how wonderful Iman Vellani was as Kamala Khan. It seems nothing has changed on that front.

There’s some crazy surprises…

Apparently, director Nia DaCosta understood the assignment and made sure to pack the short runtime with a wild surprise or two.

It’s not all good….

Though it sounds like it’s no fault of Zawe Ashton’s, the film’s villain, Dar-Benn, seems to be a Phase 2 level miss.
