Marvel’s Legal Action Against Reddit for Leaking Plot Details of its Multiverse Saga has Sparked an Unparalleled Level of Public Derision

In the mere weeks since Phase Five commenced, audiences have already responded with tremendous enthusiasm for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. This fervor has positioned Marvel’s Cinematic Universe in an unprecedentedly precarious state.

While it’s certainly an exaggeration to claim the long-running superhero juggernaut is on its way out, there is no denying that the Multiverse Saga has brought about a series of worrisome lows — from franchise low scores in Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic reviews to all seven second weekend box office drops with dismal figures.

Given the situation, one would think that Kevin Feige and his team should take Disney CEO Bob Iger’s advice to heart: prioritize quality control and make an effort to address declining success. Instead of doing so, Marvel made headlines by subpoenaing Reddit for leaking their entire Quantumania script ahead of time—causing a sensation on the internet.

 

The single most successful film and television franchise in the history of the industry seeking legal action against Redditors most definitely wasn’t on our bingo card for 2023, but with one of the entire site’s most popular subreddits now having been temporarily – or permanently – suspended, sh*t just got real.

While it may be humorous to joke about Marvel keeping snipers on the roof for their stars, even that wouldn’t prevent an anonymous forum-dweller from leaking Quantumania‘s screenplay onto Reddit. The only hope of stopping such a secret is finding and uncovering the culprit themselves.

If the company gets its way, there will be serious consequences.
