Here’s Why Captain Marvel’s Success Is An Important Milestone in Cinematic World
The Marvel Cinematic Universe, otherwise known as the MCU, has reached heights never thought possible when it comes to displaying comic superheroes on the big screen. For over a decade, fans have enjoyed a coming-to-life of their all-time heroes, from Iron Man to The Hulk, to The Avengers, and most recently, Captain Marvel.
The movie is a first of sorts, being Marvel’s first superhero flick with a female lead. And as if to announce its triumphant entry, the film exceeded its box office expectation before its opening weekend was even over.
The expectations were conservative, to say the least, with the figure standing at $125 million. However, the movie premiered strong, pushing up its earning to anywhere between $145 and $155 million, as Disney expect. The significant audience the film is drawing in has led to some analysts predicting that it could rack up as much as $195 million.
Between the previews on Thursday and the showings on Friday in its opening week, the movie lined up its production team’s pockets with $61.4 million. This figure cements the film’s place in the top ten list of the best MCU movie domestic opening days, coming in at seventh place. In this regard, Captain Marvel is only bested by Iron Man 3, Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, and the three Avengers films.
Without a doubt, fans have been in untold anticipation for this movie owing to the cliffhanger in the MCU’s previous film, Avengers: Infinity War. Its final scenes seemed to suggest something to the tune of Captain Marvel being the most powerful of the Universe’s vast array of superheroes, and thus the one who would put the mad Titan Thanos in his place.
Although most MCU fans are also comic book fans, seeing the demonstration of Captain Marvel’s complete glory motion pictures was, and still is, undoubtedly too good a deal to pass on. Even more enticing is the lead actress Brie Larson who plays the lead character, and known for among other shows, the United States of Tara.
Ahead of the film’s opening, NBCUniversal’s Fandango reported that Captain Marvel had sold more advance tickets than Black Panther, replacing Avengers: Infinity War in second place.
A section of MCU fans happen to be non-comic readers and only know of Marvel superheroes from film and television. This simple fact makes Captain Marvel’s reception so far an incredible feat, seeing as her character is not that popular among this section of fans. Truth be told, not many of them knew that Carol Danvers is Captain Marvel’s alter ego. Thanks to the latest MCU installment, now they do.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been nothing but heaven on earth for superhero lovers. Several factors combine synergistically to make this possible, with its success tipped to stand the test of time. Timing, novelty, and perfect casting lay the groundwork for the MCU with the release of Iron Man in 2008, a trend that has been replicated over and over.
