The Director of Ms. Marvel Responds to Review-Bombing

Following their success with Bad Boys For Life in 2020, filmmaker pair Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah entered the superhero genre by contracting with Marvel Studios to helm Ms. Marvel. It looked like a marriage made in heaven when they took on the MCU’s first Pakistani hero and one of the youngest major characters in Marvel history, but things haven’t gone well since the first episode aired.

Numerous Phase 4 projects have been subjected to review-bombing by fans, with racist and homophobic rhetoric being used often, like with Ms. Marvel. While many of the concerns focused on Kamala’s new abilities, others complained that Marvel was “bowing to the woke mob” rather than concentrating on what Marvel fans genuinely wanted to see.

With Kamala Khan being such an exciting new character for Marvel Studios to present, it’s obviously disheartening to see so much hostility based on something that shouldn’t be a discussion topic in the first place. This is a problem that Marvel Studios executives recognize, but in a recent interview, Ms. Marvel’s directorial team explained why it’s not something they’re concerned about in the long term.

Review Bombing by Ms. Marvel Directors

Ms. Marvel

Ms. Marvel filmmakers Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah spoke with Gizmondo about fans engaged in online review bombing after Episode 1 broadcast.

El Arbi saw it as taking “the good with the bad,” saying that the fans is their main motivation for being in the company in the first place. He and Fallah primarily intended to “concentrate only on the good parts” and ensure that the fanbase only sees the best of the MCU, expecting that younger fans, in particular, would love digging into this new story:

“Well, I believe that fandom ideals are a mirror of society, so you have to have both the good and the terrible. We feel it is mostly positive. I mean, fandom is what drives us to create these TV series and films. They make the Marvel MCU heroes famous, which is why we have AvengerCon. We make an effort to pay tribute to the fanbase. That’s why Kamala Khan likes her. You must also appreciate the fanbase since they are so dedicated to it. I believe that we tend to concentrate only on the good parts of it because of the love and attention that they provide. You won’t find it in any other work, and it’s a tremendous treat. We hope that our little addition to the MCU will satisfy fans all across the globe, particularly younger fans.”


El Arbi also said how Ms. Marvel assisted the team in discovering their own identity, as they had similar issues going through that internal conflict as Kamala Khan:

“We identified with the character when we found the comics since we are Moroccan, Belgian, and Muslim. We were searching for our own identities as youths. ‘What is our place?’ you know. Are we Moroccans or Muslims? Are we Belgian?’ and not knowing where we fit in any of those as kids, with that identity issue and everything.”


This same premise applied to Kamala Khan, and Iman Vellani completely understood it because of her own Pakistani heritage.

El Arbi mentioned how he and Fallah incorporated some of their actual experiences in the program, particularly those that occurred in Ms. Marvel comics. This was just the beginning of the connections, as he considered how much of a passionate MCU fan Vellani is while portraying a character who idolizes Earth’s Mightiest Heroes:

“And this is similar to Kamala Khan’s encounter with Pakistani Muslim-American society. Iman Vellani is a Pakistani Canadian who completely grasped that character. And we included a lot of our experiences, our cultural background, the connection with the family, the parents—all the other cultural things, like going to the mosque, were also there in the very recognized comic book. And, like the character, Iman Vellani is the greatest MCU fan there is. Kevin Feige is her hero, and she adores him. Her favorite film is Iron Man. She never saw herself as a member of the MCU. And then she becomes an actress. She’s the primary character, and she’s a superhero! And it’s the same as Kamala Khan idolizing Captain Marvel. And then she gains superhuman abilities. So there are many parallels between our experience, the story of [Ms. Marvel comic creator] Sana Amanat, and the story of Iman Vellani.”


Fallah then discussed the last moment in Episode 1 in which Kamala sneaks back into her room and runs into her mother, something the filmmaker claimed occurred to him when he was younger. While emphasizing that Kamala’s circumstances are similar to those of individuals in the real world, he added that the program is intended to highlight the importance of friends and family in Kamala’s life:

“You know, when I was younger, I went out and my mother found me in the middle of the night. Everything is really relevant, especially the [common] issue since my parents are traditional Moroccans and I’m young and wanted to do that. So everything was incredibly relevant and intimate to me. But, much as in my life, my family and friends supported me while I pursued my ambition. And it’s clear from this TV program that Kamala Khan’s family and friends are her true superpowers. And she must go deep into her origins to really comprehend where she is and who she is.”

Marvel Ignores the Critics

Ms. Marvel

Although the makers of Ms. Marvel can’t totally avoid the show’s bad critiques, they’re focusing on the positives that have been offered so far.

Given how much the MCU fandom’s ideals mirror societal values, it seems natural that Marvel Studios is incorporating some of that real-world vibe into the tale, particularly given how much the series is working to enhance its representation on screen. It’s also an opportunity to demonstrate how much the audience has grown over the last decade, with Kamala Khan having the opportunity to represent that passion for Marvel’s characters inside the program itself.

Hopefully, Marvel’s collaboration with Ms. Marvel will avoid the type of online comments that certain fans unleashed after Episode 1, which is now occurring with Star Wars as Obi-Wan Kenobi runs concurrently on Disney+. Thankfully, El Arbi and Fallah don’t seem to be thinking negatively, as they seize the opportunity to add a new layer of thrilling narrative to the MCU’s burgeoning heritage.

Ms. Marvel’s debut episode is now available to watch on Disney+. The second episode will air on Wednesday, June 15.

Armor Wars Movie: from Marvel Disney+ Series To A Film

Due to creative adjustments, the TV series starring Don Cheadle will now be turned into an MCU – Armor Wars movie. The most of the Disney+ series that Marvel Studios had planned have already been released, but Armor Wars has been stuck in development for a while. Even though it had been announced in 2020, James Rhodes’ spinoff show hadn’t received any updates until 2022. In 2008’s Iron Man, Terrence Howard played Rhodes; in Iron Man 2, Cheadle took over as War Machine, and he has since continued to feature in several MCU projects.

Despite being a part of Phase 5, the Armor Wars TV series on Disney+ is being redesigned as an MCU – Armor Wars movie, with Don Cheadle remaining attached to play War Machine.

Due to creative adjustments, the TV series starring Don Cheadle will now be turned into an MCU – Armor Wars movie. The most of the Disney+ series that Marvel Studios had planned have already been released, but Armor Wars has been stuck in development for a while. Even though it had been announced in 2020, James Rhodes’ spinoff show hadn’t received any updates until 2022. In 2008’s Iron Man, Terrence Howard played Rhodes; in Iron Man 2, Cheadle took over as War Machine, and he has since continued to feature in several MCU projects.

War Machine is followed by Armor Wars following Phase 3, which resulted in the demise of his closest friend, Tony Stark. The Disney+ drama will, according to confirmation, follow the events of Secret Invasion, in which Cheadle will next play the Marvel character. Despite Disney’s commitment to creating the series, Armor Wars was not included in any of the Phases 5 or 6 slates that Marvel Studios presented at San Diego Comic-Con. One of the key Armor Wars stories, according to Cheadle in an interview from earlier this month, would include Tony Stark’s technology going out into the open, with Rhodey having to stop the wrong people from using it.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Armor Wars is being retooled into a feature picture, causing a significant shake-up within Marvel Studios. The company decided that a movie would be a better choice as opposed to a 6-episode series since they were dedicated to “having the tale conveyed the proper way.” The movie’s screenplay will be written by the film’s head writer, Yassir Lester, who is still employed. Production had been planned to begin in 2023, but this most recent development has forced a postponement. The Armor Wars information was released shortly after the director of the Blade reboot was fired.

How the MCU Will Be Affected by the Filming of Armor Wars Movie

Armor Wars

While Armor Wars’ continual postponement is a problem in and of itself, Cheadle’s character might gain from the film’s decision. Despite the fact that War Machine has been in a lot of MCU movies, he has never been the main character in any of the plots. Despite Rhodes having his own show at first, a feature film offers him a greater stage for obvious reasons. Additionally, this would give War Machine his own cinematic prominence after serving as Iron Man’s sidekick throughout the duration of the MCU. Marvel has adapted a product from one medium to another before, and Armor Wars is hardly the only instance of this. The Royal Family was supposed to have its own Phase 3 movie before The Inhumans became a TV show, but instead received a short series on ABC that had a poor outcome.

The length of Armor Wars’ delay as a result of the move from Disney+ to theaters is yet unknown. Armor Wars may have to wait until Phase 6 even if it takes place after Secret Invasion unless Marvel discovers a window in Phase 5 that makes sense. Due to the enormous lag between the conclusion of Secret Invasion and the release of Cheadle’s movie, it’s probable that the tie-ins from Secret Invasion will be eliminated if Armor Wars is redeveloped as a feature film. There is a likelihood that Armor Wars was always a Phase 6 project because the slate wasn’t fully revealed at San Diego Comic-Con. It is unclear how Armor Wars will fare as a movie unless Cheadle, Feige, and Marvel Studios make announcements.

Everything you need to know about Wolverine

Wolverine

Wolverine is a fictional character that appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, typically in conjunction with the X-Men. His real name is James Howlett, but he also goes by the aliases Logan and Weapon X.

Wolverine, a comic book character whose stern, aggressive demeanor established the bar It became quickly obvious that his initial yellow-and-blue clothing did not conjure up images of a furious the early 21st century…

James Howlett – Wolverine – Logan – Weapon X

Here is some facts about Wolverine

Habitat. These hardy creatures live alone and require a lot of space to wander.
Diet. Wolverines are stubborn, so while they occasionally consume vegetarian food like plants and berries in the summer, it does not constitute a significant portion of their diet.

What role does Wolverine play in X-Men Apocalypse?

Professor Charles Xavier invites Wolverine to join up for his new superhero-mutant team, called the X-Men, where Logan creates a close friendship with Cyclops and Jean Grey. Later it was discovered that Xavier, erased Logan’s memory and forced him to join the X-Men team by purpose. Professor X had to delete all Wolverine memories because he was sent to kill X-Men team leader a.k.a. – Charles Xavier.

Cyclops and Jean Grey

James Howlett (Wolverine) is also called Logan and Weapon X. He is a mutant with three retractable claws in each hand and animal-keen senses. He also has heightened physical powers, a strong regeneration ability known as a healing factor, and animal-keen senses.

Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine a.k.a. Logan

So Wolverine is from DC (Detective Comic) or MCU ( Marvel Cinematic Universe)?

Offten fans wonder is Wolverine a DC or a Marvel hero? Well, Wolverine was allegedly inspired by the DC superhero Timberwolf. Due to his ability to heal, the color of his outfit, and his hair, he is Wolverine’s polar opposite. The only thing that separates them is their claws, which are quite similar to each other despite Timberwolf’s sharp claws not being like Wolverine’s retractable ones. But, officially Wolverine was created for Marvel Comics by writer Len Wein and artist John Romita.

What is Wolverine’s history?

Did you know that Wolverine actually are father to Jimmy Hudson? James Hudson and Wolverine served together in the Iraq War, and James was given guardianship of Wolverine’s infant kid. To make the adoption legitimate, Jimmy’s surname name was changed from Howlett to Hudson. Jimmy’s origins were kept a mystery up until his senior year of high school. Wolverines son – Jimmy didn’t realize he was a mutant when he was a child, but he always felt unique and rejected the idea that he might be one.

In movies we saw that Hugh Jackman who played Logan in several movies, had to play very different scenario/story line whan it’s in comic books. For the first time Wolverine appeared in our TV screens in 2009. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) showed us remarcable MCU story line with new characters. At the movie we saw that Logan a.k.a. Wolverine was made in laboratory. But did you know that in comics, originally he got such powers from his birth parent.
