“No Real Substance”

Being such a vast universe, there are many people who are involved in the process of making one MCU film. While the timeline, which is divided into different phases, has been built intricately. However, there are always some people who like to criticise the franchise, like John Oliver.

Regardless of the MCU dominating the box office, John Oliver talked about the internet misinformation. He pointed out how a few small changes on a meme can help misinformation spread on social media apps.

It is then when he jokingly said, “All it takes is a few superficial labels and style choices to convince people that something with no real substance is actually meaningful and good. Or as it is known in America – The Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

He also said “Grow up” to the audience, quickly started to moan and booed the host. However, there was a mixed reaction from people on social media. One user wrote, “I know John Oliver did not just Diss the MCU. I love you, John. But baby, you were in one of the worst Disney live action remakes out here. I don’t think you have the authority to say the MCU is something with no substance with tacky superficial labels to make it look good.”
