The “what occurred with Secret Invasion” tales don’t appear to wish to finish, as director Ali Selim simply…loves speaking. He’s commented on the size of Rhodey being a Skrull, which he doesn’t even appear to know. He says he feels “nice” about its blended evaluations as a result of Marvel’s “rabid” fanbase. Now he’s deflecting on one of many present’s most controversial moments.
Director Ali Selim has revealed that the season (sequence?) finale Tremendous Skrull struggle was Kevin Feige’s mandate from the beginning.
“It begins with Kevin Feige, who says ‘We’re gonna have a Tremendous Skrull struggle and all superpowers are honest sport.’ I believe that’s truly finest communicated within the second the place Gravik takes the vial from Fury and places it within the pc for evaluation. We see oh, it’s all the superpowers scrolling up right here.”
This makes it seem to be it was undoubtedly Feige’s thought personally relatively than them coming to him and asking permission.
The struggle itself between G’iah and Gravik has been mocked for each its CGI, together with a broadly circulated shot of Emilia Clarke flexing a “Drax arm,” and for its wild shift in tone. The joke is “actually, that is Marvel’s Andor,” a reference to the grounded, critically acclaimed Star Wars sequence. This was imagined to be a Chilly Battle spy sequence set within the Marvel universe, and but right here we’re, with two CGI creatures slugging it out with laser powers within the finale.
I believe the finest a part of all that is that that is precisely the ultimate sequence that She-Hulk was making enjoyable of in its personal finale. It’s virtually the identical plot too, somebody unhealthy was attempting to reap Hulk DNA to make use of on themselves which might lead to an enormous villain-Hulk-She-Hulk struggle that the present broke the fourth wall to erase and rescript. That’s…fairly actually the top of Secret Invasion right here. To not point out the present has now broke universe guidelines and let G’iah reside as probably the most highly effective particular person in the whole universe.
The top result’s the one lowest rated episode of any Marvel sequence ever. Nothing is even shut, even the review-bombed She-Hulk. It presently has an 8% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not an 80%, an 8%. That’s…genuinely exhausting to perform.
So, I’m unsure you’ll be able to blame the MCU’s just lately missteps on untested administrators or writers. If one thing like this got here straight from Feige itself, it looks like the principle architect himself could also be shedding the plot.
