What is the most watched Marvel movie in 2022 on the Disney+ platform? The answer comes as a surprise to most fans of the Marvel Universe.
Curious to find out what the film Marvel most seen in streaming in the 2022? The answer might surprise you, considering that the title in question has so far been underestimated by the MCU and left on the sidelines, even with regard to the Phase 5 departing with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. The previous stage (the fourth) ended with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, a sequel that brought audiences back to Wakanda without King T’Challa. But what is the most watched movie in streaming of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2022 on Disney+?
Marvel, the most watched film in 2022 in streaming
To the astonishment of most, the most watched streaming movie in the Marvel universe is Eternals. The film directed by Chloe Zhao debuted in 2021 in cinemas with a noteworthy ensemble cast led by Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan e Richard Madden to mention a few. The plot tells the story of a group of Eternals sent to Earth for an apparently very specific reason: to protect human beings from monstrous creatures, called Deviants. But, as the narrative progresses, it turns out that their goal has always been different and extremely dangerous for human beings. Despite the vast number of characters and actors involved, Eternals has so far been one of the most underrated films in the Marvel universe, also due to the low score (both on IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes).
Despite the criticisms received, Eternals seems to be the most watched film in streaming on the Disney + platform during 2022. As reputed Nielsenthe Eternals film placed at ninth place in the standings of the most-watched films on Disney+ during the year that just ended, bringing home 4.236 billion hours of viewing. In addition, Eternals is the only Marvel Cinematic Universe film to be included in the Top 10 of the most watched Disney films. An unexpected success, considering the way the film was received at the box office. As it reports ScreenRant, Eternals earned $402 million at the box office on a $200 million budget. It is also true that the film was brought to the cinema in a still particularly delicate phase caused by the pandemic. Released in November 2021, the film arrived in theaters shortly after the reopening of cinemas with the necessary anti-contagion rules. This could have prompted many of the viewers to postpone the vision and wait for the streaming film to arrive, as evidenced by the success achieved on Disney + in 2022.
