It is clear that Disney is not as popular these days as many would like to think, as every film released is no longer considered a box office success, as we have seen in its recent productions e.g. Lightyears, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantummania and even Marvels. After that, even the CEO of the company, Bob Igercame out to make statements that really wouldn’t be the most encouraging in the world.
In a recent conference call with the company’s investors, Iger Accepted as production Indiana Jones: The Dial of Destiny and The Little Mermaid They did not collect the expected amount in live action, which is not positive at all in the stock market. Noting that these kinds of issues also stem from the streaming services they have, given that months after they hit Billboard people prefer to watch them at home rather than pay for tickets.
Here is his comment:
If we look at the productions we have released, it is clear that the pandemic has created many creative challenges for everyone, including us. Moreover, when the pandemic hit, we aimed to significantly increase the number of series and movies released every year. And I always believe that quantity plays against quality. And I think what happened is, we lost our focus.
Even with all this, he made it clear to investors that they have had box office success in the last five years, including the first Avengers EndgameWhich managed to surpass the then cinema champion, we mention its first part avatar of James Cameron. On the other hand, and in a somewhat ironic way with Neel’s film, there was also talk that the second part they made last year has now catapulted into the hit list.
Let’s not forget that they also have a new plan up their sleeve, which includes a return to the original Avengers to flood movie theaters with multi-problems again, and secret war It will be a perfect opportunity to visit again Robert Downey Jr. o Scarlett Johansson. However, those are more advanced plans, since now there are many tapes Marvel has been delayed until 2025 And that will expand more production.
Editor’s note: The truth is that it is positive that they accept the disaster of their latest products launched in the market, which did not succeed, we are not going to deny it. Nevertheless, this could be the first step towards positive change and for them to put the remakes aside and focus on more interesting things.
