The newest super-powered addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is on her way and it looks like she’s going to make an impressive landing when she arrives. Captain Marvel is set to hit screens this weekend and the latest projections have the film making a whopping $350 million worldwide in its first few days.
Captain Marvel has quickly become a highly anticipated new chapter in the MCU. It marks the first female-led feature in the Marvel series of films and has already garnered a mostly positive critical reception. Projections are now putting the film’s opening weekend to reach $150 million domestically which added to global box office figures would put the film well above the $300 million mark. Ticket presales for the new film are already above those for Avengers: Infinity War, but it’s expected that Captain Marvel can break Infinity War’s massive opening weekend of $640.5 million.
These projections would put Captain Marvel right behind Black Panther which took in $371.4 million on its opening weekend. Even though that means it would still not beat other big MCU openings like the first Avengers which made a $392.5 million opening, it’s still a very strong debut for a new character and would continue Marvel’s pattern success. Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jude Law. The story follows Airforce pilot Carol Danvers as she discovers secrets about her past while trying to protect Earth from an intergalactic war. We got a small tease of the character at the end of Avengers: Infinity war, signaling her involvement in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, this May. Captain Marvel debuts in theaters on March 8th.
