The Marvels opens with one of the lowest Rotten Tomatoes scores in the MCU

After receiving a mediocre 54%, The Marvels has landed in the 31st position, out of all 33 MCU movies

It's the movie everyone's talking about - and no, it isn't the brand new Mean Girls musical...

The earliest critiques of Marvel's latest instalment - aptly named The Marvels - have officially begun rolling in, days ahead of the potential blockbuster's release to cinemas.

Unfortunately, however, it doesn't look as though many earlybird fans of the Marvel Comics Universe (MCU) have been left satisfied by the new movie, after it landed a mediocre score of just 54% on review-aggregation site, Rotten Tomatoes.

This makes the superhero movie the THIRD LOWEST rated of all the MCU instalments on the website, despite it not yet having hit the silver screen.

Amongst the hundreds of professional reviews, which have been flooding in over the last 24 hours ahead of the movie's release in cinemas tomorrow (9 November), one viewer sensationally dubbed it a 'mediocre superhero flick.'

They went on: "Neither the characters, nor the story or themes are particularly developed, the humor mostly falls flat and the juxtaposition of end-of-the-world scenarios and fun nonsense is off-putting."

Another - who gave the movie an eyebrow-raising rating of just 2/10 - also wrote on Rotten Tomatoes: "A tired hodgepodge of muddled storytelling and wearisome superhero cliché a franchise that has become a worn-out pastiche of the innovative, escapist behemoth it once was."

Many social media users have been quick to comment on The Marvels' bad publicity.

"How does a marvel movie get such a low rating?" one fan questioned on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Another disgruntled viewer added, "Disney and Marvel really be flopping lately huh...", to which a third replied, "the movies they're releasing are of poor quality".

Of the now 33 Marvel movies, unfortunately, The Marvels has shockingly landed in the 31st spot, despite starring Hollywood favourite, Brie Larson.

The Marvels has received some scathing reviews.

The only movies in the MCU to have received a lower rating so far are Eternals, which bagged a cringe-worthy 47%, and Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which scored 46%.

Sitting proudly at the top of the list - and far from The Marvels - are the likes of 2018's Black Panther (96%), 2019's Avengers: Endgame (94%), and 2008's Ironman (also 94%).

Other viewers have attempted to defend The Marvels, however, with one Rotten Tomatoes contributor giving it a reasonable 7/10.

"The characters and performances are strong enough to offset the film's shortcomings..." they wrote. "The Marvels is a ton of fun, and unlike several of the recent MCU offerings, I'm genuinely looking forward to seeing it again."

Another added a higher score, writing: "The Marvels feels like a return to form for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it is a film focused on telling the story of its three leading ladies and not future endeavors, and those three ladies are all a ton of fun to watch."
