  • Iman Vellani appreciates Stephen King’s support of The Marvels and finds it awesome to have him on their side.
  • Vellani believes that the box office performance is beyond her control and focuses on the enjoyment of the finished product.
  • According to Vellani, The Marvels is a fun movie about teamwork and sisterhood set in space, and she is happy to share it with others.

Iman Vellani has shared a response to Stephen King, who recently defended The Marvels among backlash to the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. The Marvels has been a divisive film for many audiences, and that translated to the box office as it has performed lower than expectations. It’s the latest MCU movie from Marvel Studios with a divisive response, and some are relishing the film’s downfall. Amid this backlash, Stephen King defended The Marvels despite not being a fan of the MCU.

He also said some of the backlash toward The Marvels could be “adolescent fanboy hate.” In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Vellani responded to King’s words, saying, Having Stephen King in anyone’s corner is pretty awesome. The Ms. Marvel actor previously addressed The Marvels’ performance at the box office, saying she doesn’t want to focus on something outside of her control and “that’s for Bob Iger.”

[The box office] has nothing to do with me. I’m happy with the finished product, and the people that I care about enjoyed the film. It’s genuinely a good time watching this movie, and that’s all we can ask for with these films. It has superheroes, it take place in space, it’s not that deep and it’s about teamwork and sisterhood. It’s a fun movie, and I’m just so happy that I can share it with people.

The Marvels is getting backlash for two main reasons. The first is that there is a loud crowd of people who claim the film is “woke” and are rooting for it to fail. This has been a common trend in recent years, especially with Disney movies that have diverse women in leading roles. While this crowd does have an impact, it isn’t the driving force behind The Marvels‘ failing box office performance.

The other reason for the movie’s hate is that Marvel has been on a downtrend recently for certain viewers and many are getting tired of the same Marvel shtick. The Marvels is an entertaining film, but it does contain much of the same humor and messy storytelling that MCU audiences have been complaining about. While these viewers typically want Marvel to succeed, they see The Marvels‘ box office as a wake-up call to the studio that it’s time for them to take a break and focus harder on delivering the same quality as before.
