Four weeks since the its release, The Marvels has officially become the franchise’s lowest-earning film ever, having generated $80 million in North America and $197 million worldwide, per Variety.

In a statement released on Sunday (December 3), the studio announced it “will stop weekend reporting of international/global grosses on this title.”

Recently, Disney CEO Bob Iger implied that a lack of corporate oversight was to blame for the movie’s poor box-office performance, and cast doubt on the MCU’s future concerning follow-up projects.

“I don’t want to apologize for making sequels. Some of them have done extraordinarily well and they’ve been good films, too,” he said. “I think you there has to be a reason to make them, you have to have a good story. And often the story doesn’t hold up to is not as strong as the original story. That can be a problem. It doesn’t mean we’re not going to continue to make them. We’re making a number of them now right as a matter of fact. But we will only greenlight a sequel if we believe the story that the creators want to tell is worth telling.”
