Something I posted on fagland before they banned me. https://old.reddit.com/r/Random_Shit/comments/13pug57/in_offense_against_the_mcu/
It's become a cliché at this point, but the MCU really was good up until Endgame. (Well, really, Infinity War; Endgame is pure fanservice and had that cringe "Girl Power" scene in it. And you know, all the continuity errors and plotholes.) But then, after Phase 3, Gunn got fired and Victoria Alonzo happened.
I think the most passionate fans are the ones who hold the creators to a higher standard. That's how you separate the fans from the fanboys in any property. I gave Wandavision, Black Widow, and all the other Phase 4 stuff a shot. Even saw Ant Man Quantummania (online.) I know this is an uphill battle for you, but there IS no defending Phase 4 and 5 of the MCU, and the biggest Marvel fans should be the ones the most pissed off. It's not that complicated: They stopped giving the fans what they liked and what they wanted, and that was mostly due to Victoria Alonzo.
Look at what they did to my boy Taskmaster! Look how they massacred Jen Walters! She-Hulk is my favorite female Marvel character and I even liked the Dan Slott books, as much as an asshole Dan Slott is. Making the "antagonist" of the show "literally the TV audience" because your lead writer is the troll behind Pickle Rick isn't being "funny." She Hulk doesn't have a single ounce of humor in it. It's dripping with pure man-hatred, from top to bottom, and Jen herself is a contradictory character, who lives an upper middle class lifestyle as a (terribly incompetent) lawyer in LA and has no actual problems whatsoever, but is going to lecture her suicidal former-fugitive cousin about how catcalling is worse than anything he's been through. ANY Marvel fan, comics or not, should be pissed at that.
Politics aside, She Hulk is still literally the worst show I've ever seen (never watched Velma or the Rings of Power) due to there being no character arc, no memorable episodes, and NO POINT TO ANYTHING. They never even explain where Titania came from, what she was doing in the courtroom in the first episode, why she never got arrested, or why she's She-Hulk's enemy. If the writers don't care, why should we? And do we even need to get into what they did to Loki? Not even Phase 3 Loki, but end-of-Phase-1 Loki, no less.
And people don't hate "Women in leading roles" in the MCU; they hate the female replacements belittling and replacing the male characters in the MCU and being given the A-list treatment and spotlight without having earned it, which is LITERALLY what Victoria Alonzo wanted. She thought "Iron Man" and "Captain America" are nothing more than their powers and name. And it's not just female replacements, but ANY replacements of the main MCU heroes, including Florence Pugh as "Black Widow 2.0" and Falcon as "Captain America 2.0" because "we need a black man to wear the stars and stripes." These characters are more than just their powers, and any true Marvel fan understands that. Thor isn't "a title" and the name "Captain America" is meaningless without Steve Rogers.
Thor Ragnarok was good, Thor Love and Thunder wasn't. It's that simple. Sure it's subjective opinion, but people are allowed to have it. The bigger problem people have with the MCU is that it's aimless and not building up to anything. Even if it was building up to Kang, that bitch-ass got his butt handed to him by Ant Man, a street-level hero, and before that, lost to Feminist Loki. He ain't a threat, in the eyes of the MCU audience. Also, Johnathan Majors isn't threatening either, assuming he even still stays in the MCU, which is unlikely. Chukwudi Iwuji acting circles around Majors and winning over the audience in Guardians 3, kinda proves that, at this point.
As far as the Disney+ shows are concerned, What If was the only half-decent one, and that show ONLY suffers cause its runtime is too short at half an hour. Just when things get good, the episode abruptly ends. The only stand-out episode was the Doctor Strange one, although it breaks multiverse lore in itself by implying "there is no multiverse" and things are kinda set in stone. Besides that one episode, the rest of them suffer for having such a small runtime. I don't know ANYONE who liked Loki, let alone Shang Chi or The Eternals. Wandavision would've been better as just the "sitcoms in the multiverse" thing, and not that garbage plot they attached to it that ends in the people Wanda tortured "never knowing what she sacrificed" (which was nothing, as she could just recreate her fake family somewhere else, far away from other people.) Saying "it was to set-up Doctor Strange 2" doesn't make the show itself good or worth the investment in time, and nobody should have to see Wandavision as homework to understand Doctor Strange 2, especially if you aren't going to explain anything to the people who missed out on it (which Guardians 3 avoided having the issue with, by just adding a line or two, cause James Gunn actually knows what he's doing.) And many people had checked-out of the MCU shows by the time Hawkeye, Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel came around, and they weren't popular either. So really, everything in Phase 4 has been contentious except No Way Home, and even that movie isn't universally loved.
Telling people what they can like or dislike, especially if they're PAYING MONEY to see these movies (in most cases and aren't on the high seas.) That kind of attitude is exactly what spawned the "Don't Ask Questions, Just Consume Product" meme. People don't like the MCU anymore because the movies SUCK. It's that simple. (And no, Rotten Tomatoes critic reviews aren't an accurate metric of "quality.")
Phase 4 has more content than the previous three phases did, so having ONE actual good movie, No Way Home, compared to one or two stinkers per phase, like Captain Marvel, is WHY Phase 4 is different. Simple math. More trash than gems, is why people hate Phase 4. People also AREN'T expecting perfection on the same level of Phase 2 and 3, hence why people liked Guardians of the Galaxy 3, even after the dumpster fires of Wakanda Forever, Thor 4, and Doctor Strange being sidelined in his own movie by America Chavez. People are more than willing to settle for mediocre at this point, and the MCU can't even give audiences that anymore.
The MCU hasn't been giving the people what they want, and that's because of Victoria Alonzo, among others. No, you have to give the people want they WANT, not what you THINK they should get. Otherwise, they'll stop supporting you. This is Business 101 that even little kids with lemonade stands understand.
