Is the Franchise Model Starting to Fatigue in Hollywood?

After poor showings from ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ and ‘The Mandalorian,’ Matt and Lucas speculate on the future of the franchise entertainment model

Marvel Studios

Matt is joined by Bloomberg’s Lucas Shaw to discuss whether we are starting to see signs of decline in the franchise entertainment model. After the poor box-office showing of Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and a slow start to Season 3 of The Mandalorian, they speculate about whether the bankable franchise model of spinoffs, sequels, prequels, and universes is still as safe a bet as it once was. Matt finishes the show with a prediction about Hulu’s future and the upcoming film Flamin’ Hot.
