Stephen King has called out the “barely masked gloating” over The Marvels‘ box office shortcomings. The horror author absolutely correct that this particular box office struggle is nothing to be gleeful about.
The Marvels premiered on November 10, just hours after the SAG-AFTRA strike, which lasted for 118 days, officially ended. The female-led film sees Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) forced to team up after their light-based powers became entangled. Under the guidance of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), the trio learn to coordinate their entanglement while trying to stop Kree revolutionary Dar-Benn (Zawe Ashton)’s quest for vengeance.
