According to an alleged source, Marvel Studios’ latest diversity campaign is not intended to send a smear message toward the outspoken white man’s ‘acceptable target’ demographic, but rather to cynically pressure the additional money that can come from American audiences in order to earn due to the fact that their sales are in China is going a lot less exciting than they expected – to the point that the brand is largely “dead” within the confines of the communist state.

Supposed insiders provided their insight on Marvel’s death spiral to Disney scooper WDW Pro, who in turn rescinded his letter of identification and published its contents to a Disney-centric news outlet. The Park Place.
They were asked to share their information after they found themselves fanning the previous post scoop for an purported explanation from within Disney as to why the company Marvel and Star Wars Game sales are decliningMarvel Insider told WDW Pro that “new things don’t sell.”
They explained that “what is happening now with Marvel is the same thing that happened with Star Wars.” “It’s a vicious cycle. It all comes down to two big factors > China and ego.”

Expanding on this assertion, the insider revealed that “Marvel is dead in China. Not the brand. Sales,” where the Chinese government wants to play a tough role, wants to cut the MCU off the box office.”
“It’s all politics and propaganda,” they said. “They want the biggest movies made in China, and shown in China. But that was the big driving force behind Marvel’s strategy for a decade. We were supposed to finish the Infinity Stone saga, saturate Western markets, and then the growth was in Beijing. Now we’re in a closed position.” “.
Then the insider made the comparison, “Same star Wars But a different reason. “
They recall: “Lucasfilm mismanaged Star Wars in China, making it very difficult to reach a new audience, killing the market.” “For Marvel, Beijing has a revenge on us. We’ve grown so much and been slapped by the communist hand. So now we have to find a new place to grow. That’s why we’ve pushed so hard for ‘diversity’.”

Going to explain their use of quotes around the term “diversity” in their letter, the insider told WDW Pro, “Marvel’s diversity doesn’t mean what you think it means. It’s not races, religions, and disabilities. Diversity equals representation.”
“So the idea was then Black PantherThey said about Marvel’s supposed battle plans. “Not all of this. But [also]We’re not supposed to represent everything and everyone.”
“We don’t do Christians or Jews, we don’t do strong white male leads in heroic positions,” they admitted to the elephant in the room, though this was followed by the surprising revelation that “it’s not that these are bad at henceforth, We’ve been told that Marvel already has a market for those kits.”
“Why achieve more when you can slow down your burning big stuff for those demographics and parents keep buying them at the same rate?” they suggested.

In the end, the insider came up with the main reason they wanted WDW Pro, warning Spade, “Representation and diversity are political. That’s why I’m concerned, with others, that this is going into a Star Wars black hole.”
They claimed “they don’t mean to make it political, they are only politicians and they don’t know it”. “They don’t leave their bubbles. Instead of doing new things based on race or gender, we have to do it based on behaviors. Then in meetings, we are told that behaviors are representations.”
The insider added, “It is not enough to have diversity based on background, we must have diversity based on the way people act.” “why do you think Strong woman How is it that they’re trying to create a new Marvel marketplace for the new feminists. We’re trying to grow in every direction at once and have faith that old fans will stick with it through all of this.”
Unfortunately for Marvel, the insider confirmed, “That’s not the case.”
They said, “They know it and they can’t hide it.” “The failures were a massive embarrassment. People don’t turn to Disney+ for Marvel shows the way they were planned. At the same time, they’re not ready for change because this is a Feige layer and it’s all about itself.”
They asserted that he “did not want to be known as the greatest IP manager of all time”. “He wants to be known as the greatest studio head ever => creative, financial, everything.”
“But the Feige class is failing,” the insider continued. “Everyone knows it. Your game expert knows it. Our partners know it. But then, people ask when the phones are away, ‘Why don’t you adapt — why don’t you go back to what works?’ That goes back to the ego.”
“Feige thinks he can hold out long enough to build new markets with every DEI on screen, and then thinks he can buy back old fans with a massive spending spree on multiverse things,” they said.

Noting that Feige is planning to bring back “everyone they can get” in the building stages of the upcoming Secret War in the MCU – with the exception of Robert Downey Jr., with whom they claimed Disney’s relationship soured – the insider admitted that although she’ll be working for a while, They eventually “put bandages on the boat.”
They predicted “when Hugh Jackman Wolverine shows up through the gate, fans will go crazy like Spider-Man.” “But then what? That’s the problem with Star Wars. We’re going to blow everything up to win back fans but the holes will still be there. After we spend all that money, all that investment, Feige will still be pushing DEI and new stories so he can change his legacy.”
Drawing their message to the end, the insider provided two slides to WDW Pro, explaining that while CEO “Bob Chapek says he wants the company out of politics,” he “doesn’t want to get out of politics the way you guys think.”
They explained, “He wants Disney out of politics but he wants to put a lot of effort into the acting we talked about.” “Only one way though. It’s $$. They already have the white market, the Christian market, the moderate market. And they don’t boycott. At least they don’t. The strategy may change now that we see a dip.”

However, despite this suggestion that boycotting such demographics might have an impact on Disney’s direction, such pressure would not apply to the company’s LGBT+ activity, such as “even if [Chapek] He wants Disney out of the political sausage industry, and he still wants to deal with the alphabet issues — he wants to act on things.”
“This is where they think the new markets are,” they claimed. They want to increase Disney’s minority proportions. They want to increase sales of single women merchandise.”
Second, provide an answer to the question “Why does Disney allow Feige’s current strategy to continue if it is doing poorly? side” in the image of Bob’s son, Brian.
They said, “This displeases a lot of people in the studio because it’s blatant nepotism.” “But it keeps Bob in a quandary. And Brian is totally co-operative with everything Feige is all about.”
Marvel’s upcoming release, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, will hit cinemas on November 11.
