Iman Vellani would rather receive positive feedback on her film The wondersinstead of focusing on its performance at the box office.
The actress spoke with Yahoo Entertainment about the latest disclosure in an interview published online Thursday. During the conversation, Vellani referenced Disney CEO Bob Iger when asked about the financial return on the film, which opened last weekend in North America to $46.1 million, marking the worst start in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe represents.
“I don’t want to focus on something that’s not even in my control because what’s the point?” said Vellani, who plays Kamala Khan in the feature film. “This is for Bob Iger.”
The actress whose character was created in the Disney+ series last year Ms. Marvelsaid she is encouraged to hear from viewers who enjoyed the film.
“[The box office] has nothing to do with me,” Vellani told the Oulet. “I am happy with the finished product and the people I care about enjoyed the film. This film is really fun to watch and that’s all we can expect from these films. There are superheroes, it’s set in space, it’s not that deep, and it’s about teamwork and sisterhood. It’s a fun movie and I’m just so happy that I can share it with people.”
Alluding to author Stephen King’s use of social media criticize Despite the negative reaction to the film, Vellani said, “It’s pretty awesome to have Stephen King in some corner.”
The landscape for The wonders didn’t get any easier this weekend. The film is currently experiencing Marvel Studios’ worst second weekend decline ever and the worst decline of any Hollywood superhero film.
