Disney and Marvel’s first female superhero, Captain Marvel, is about to hit screens and the anticipation for the newest Avenger is increasing. Captain Marvel is set to debut in theaters on March 8 and now there’s talk that the newest Marvel blockbuster could hit $100 million in ticket sales in its first weekend. Early box office estimates are tracking the latest chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to perform extremely well on its first few days with some predicting sales well above the $100 million mark.
The news of Captain Marvel’s expected success comes as a good omen to theaters who have been dealing with a continual decline in overall ticket sales this year, compared to 2018. It comes as no surprise really, as Marvel films have consistently done well with audiences and made billions for Disney. Captain Marvel follows the success of Ant-Man and The Wasp, which raked in over $600 million globally, and the immensely popular Avengers: Infinity War. Infinity War ultimately earned over $2 billion worldwide and helped to prop up ticket sales for domestic theaters last year.
Set in 1995, Captain Marvel will follow the journey of Air Force Pilot Carol Danvers as she protects Earth from warring alien factions while searching for clues about a past she can’t remember. The film stars Brie Larson as Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers and features Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, Gemma Chan and Samuel L. Jackson reprising his iconic role of Nick Fury. Captain Marvel premieres in theaters on March 8th and is expected to lead into Avengers: Endgame, which is set to hit theaters on April 26.
