We are living a certainly interesting time for those who are fan of stories of super powerful heroes. This is largely thanks to Disney and its investments in the cinematic universe. Marvel since the last decade, and intensified in recent years with television series or via streaming of other characters from this vast collection.
But believe me, the most popular show at least in terms of online repercussions is not the billionaire mouse, but a production run by Amazon by Jeff Bezos.
Yes, he is another billionaire, but less well known for the audiovisual business: It turns out that The Boys had a longer repercussion among those who watched or became interested in the series than among those who opted for Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage and others. Who shows this is Parrot Analytics, in an article in Screen Rant.
The merit is in much of the marketing, which was not only limited to the weeks prior to the show's premiere, but remained intense throughout the first few weeks of the show, which is not usually the case with Netflix, which soon releases a awaited show, changes your marketing machine to the next release.
As a result, the series remained at the same level of repercussion as the first week over the other four, when Netflix series popularity was already low again.
Another reason listed is the fact that The Boys is a more familiar, broad-based heroes show, as series Marvel on Netflix were nicely niche.
This shows that Netflix, despite being the giant of this sector can also suffer losses. Not yet very significant for its operations, but with the arrival of Disney Plus and the Apple TV Plus in November, this market may reconfigure faster than we think.
Remember, the Amazon launched Prime in Brazil, and with that, the monthly video service of the company not only dropped, but also included free shipping in the brand's e-commerce, Amazon Music and other services only $ 9.90.
