The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a box-office juggernaut for 15 years, but viewership for The Marvels paints a concerning picture for the franchises’ burgeoning Young Avengers project. It’s little secret that the MCU has failed to reach its early years’ consistent critical and commercial highs in the post-Endgame Multiverse Saga. Despite standout hits like Spider-Man: No Way Home and Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3, franchise veterans and newcomers alike have struggled to find solid footing. That continues with The Marvels‘s historically bad opening weekend, and specific viewership data lays bare a larger problem.
