Not many fans manage to find Hawkeye and Venom: Let There Be Carnage, though they have to break the law to see them.
MUSO, an anti-piracy and analytics firm, has revealed that Marvel’s live-action heroes are among the most pirated shows and movies. As reported by Deadline, MUSO’s results show that Hawkeye attracted 26.7% of all illegal TV shows, torrents and streams downloaded on 22-28. November. That’s what makes Hawkeye the most haunted show of the week, ahead of The Wheel of Time, Dexter: New Blood, Star Trek: Discovery, and Arcane. Venom: Let There Be Carnage was the most pirated movie of the week, with 38.3% of all copies pirated. Other films on the list include No Time to Die, Shang-Chi and Legend of the Ten Rings, Red Notice, and Dune.
Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye made its Thanksgiving debut with a two-part debut series on Disney +. Rotten Tomatoes certified Hawkeye as “Fresh” with a 93% critical approval score and 83% audience score. Despite this boom in support, the series has not reached as many viewers as the Marvel Cinematic Universe TVs previously shown on the platform. Within five days of the Hawkeye premiere, 1.5 million families watched the first episode, and 1.3 million families watched the second. That’s almost half of Loki’s audience, which had 2.5 million families when it premiered in June. The former MCU offers WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which top the overall Hawkeye chart, with 1.6 million and 1.8 families, respectively, watching their previews. While it is impossible to explain all of the factors that led to Hawkeye’s downfall, hockey probably did not help.
As for Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Deadline says the film’s latest video on demand release is crucial to ruining its popularity. After Sony saw 45 days on its theatrical release, Sony made the film available online for fans to purchase. With a high-quality copy of the film being distributed on the Internet at will, Let There Be Carnage is expected to attract a new audience. Fortunately, the film is already doing well for Sony. It raised over $ 469.6 million worldwide, making it one of the year’s most successful films. Following the ticketing success of Let There Be Carnage, Sony has booked two dates for 2022 for anonymous Marvel projects.
Despite the proliferation of piracy, Marvel Studios wants to keep pushing for more streaming content through Disney +. The company will add Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, Secret Invasion, Agatha: House of Darkness, and She-Hulk to their live-action offerings in the coming months. In addition, the streaming service has announced plans for a series of Echo, which will come straight out of the events in Hawkeye.
Hawkeye will go to Disney +, and Venom: Let There Be Carnage will be available via video-on-demand services for those who legally want to see Marvel heroes. The home video release is scheduled for December 14th.
