In a day when DEI is prioritized over experience and talent, it’s no surprise that even big-budget movies are flopping left and right.
The upcoming “The Marvels” movie featuring Brie Larson is projected to follow the same abysmal trajectory as nearly all the preceding films with woke agendas.
Director Nia DaCosta’s work experience and even some of her own comments about the movie hint that the sequel will be a failure and that her role as director might be tied to DEI initiatives.
“Two months out from its premiere date, all of the cast and crew should be absolutely buzzing with excitement,” says Lauren Chen, “but instead for some reason we have headlines like this … ‘Director Nia DaCosta Implies She’s Done With Marvel Studios Productions After “The Marvels.”‘”
The article reported, “In an interview with Vanity Fair, DaCosta complained throughout the interview about how stressful and demanding the production was for the film.”
“Sometimes you’d be in a scene and you’d be like, ‘What the hell does any of this s*** mean?’ … There were obviously hard days, and days where you’re like, ‘This just isn’t working,”’ DaCosta told interviewers.
“I’m not saying it’s a bad thing that this director was maybe taken out of her comfort zone with ‘The Marvels,’” says Lauren, “but it seems like … she was just ill-suited to the project to begin with.”
But Lauren isn’t really surprised by this.
“The MCU lately has been on this kick where they like to take directors who are really not familiar with big-budget, sci-fi action blockbusters and then give them Marvel movies,” she says, “and also if you ask me the reason why this is done is largely for diversity; they’re just like looking to get women or people of color behind the camera even if they’re not qualified for it.”
“When you prize things like skin color or gender over actual experience, then yes, you should expect to get people behind the camera that do feel overwhelmed,” says Lauren in reference to DaCosta’s comments.
