The trailer for The Marvels aired recently through YouTube, showcasing the latest MCU team-up flick, bringing together Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau and Iman Vellani’s Miss Marvel. It’s a trailer that’s set records for all the wrong reasons.
In just 24 hours of the trailer being live on Marvel’s official YouTube channels, it has unfortunately become the most disliked MCU trailer on the platform, amassing over 200,000 dislikes and counting.
While the reaction to the upcoming film has been less than supportive, it’s wasn’t entirely unexpected as a similar trend could be seen throughout almost all of the marketing for Captain Marvel prior to its release, as well as heavy criticism against the Disney+ TV show Ms Marvel.
The film and TV show were accused of being “too woke” and forcing an agenda, leading to review bombing and baby rage on social media, with one criticism of Captain Marvel, in particular, being that she doesn’t smile enough.
Attentive Marvel fans may have noticed a subtle nod to this criticism in the opening few seconds of The Marvels trailer, which plays the Beastie Boys’ song ‘Intergalactic’ with the opening lyric “Well, now, don’t you tell me to smile.”
Fans quickly called out the dislike trolls via Twitter, with one user saying: “Who hurt these people? Wait. Better question: who cares what these people think?”
Other users drew attention to the comment section of the trailer, drawing comparisons to the backlash of the upcoming Little Mermaid trailer, which also features an inclusive cast of characters.
The Marvels is set to release on November 10, with additional trailers likely to debut before the release date.
