Vellani is proud of The Marvels, box office earnings be damned

While speaking with Yahoo Entertainment, Vellani, who plays Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel, reflected on her feelings towards the movie’s low box office earnings compared to other MCU films.

“[The box office] has nothing to do with me,” Vellani said, “I’m happy with the finished product, and the people that I care about enjoyed the film. It’s genuinely a good time watching this movie, and that’s all we can ask for with these films.

“It has superheroes, it take place 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.”

Vellani went on to add, “I don’t want to focus on something that’s not even in my control, because what’s the point? That’s for Bob Iger.”

As of right now, The Marvels has earned a total of $161 million at the box office which makes it at the lowest MCU film to debut in theaters even behind Edward Norton’s The Incredible Hulk.
