As recently as 5 years ago, it was relatively easy to follow the storyline of the entire MCU universe and its characters, but with the arrival of the fourth and fifth phases, which also include series, it became much more complicated for many. For example, the events of the series began to spill over into the movies, so for certain viewers it was basically a pleasure to navigate the storylines and motivations of certain characters, if they had not seen one of the previous titles. This is not helped by the abundance of more and more Marvel projects, of which some fans are already well and truly tired, which then has a negative effect not only on sales, but also on reviews.
But Marvel decided to do something about it. We recently got the first trailer for the MCU series Echo, which will focus on the titular deaf anti-heroine. According to the company, it will also be the first series title to be part of the new name tag Marvel Spotlight. And what exactly is it?
The title is based on the comic book line of the same name that started in 1971. Basically, it was content aimed at fans who didn’t care the onefantastic” Marvel, in which flying superheroes with magical and supernatural powers fight cosmic threats and save worlds. It was also content that worked more independently, so fans didn’t need to know the events of any previous titles to understand it.
Basically the same thing awaits us with the upcoming serial designation. Brad Winderbaumhead of streaming for Marvel Studios, said that Marvel Spotlight will give fans more grounded stories led by interesting characters. Instead of saving the worlds, we will see “street” conflicts that will be more realistic.
The above-mentioned Echo series is also supposed to offer us all of this, to understand which, according to Winderbaum, it is not necessary to watch the previous MCU titles. Marvel Spotlight will also reportedly have its own custom intro and jingle musicwhich will be taken care of by the talented Michael Giacchinoa composer who has composed music for MCU films such as Doctor Strange (2016), a trilogy Spider-Man (2017-2021) a Thor: Love Like Thunder (2022).
In the future, other serial projects will fit into Marvel Spotlight, but will this also apply to the currently remade Daredevilis still a question.
It’s one of the ways that Marvel wants to combat the declining interest from the audience. It also includes others cuts, surveys and longer breaks between individual filmsso that the creators can not only prepare a really high-quality script, but also so that they don’t have to constantly overwhelm the audience with comic content and give them some time to relax.
