Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson which will be opened this March 8 have already defeated DC's biggest runners like Aquaman and Wonder Woman in advance ticket sales, according to Fandango. Although Fandango did not release the dollar figures of the total ticket presales, it claimed that "Captain Marvel" is now the second-highest advance ticket seller for superhero origin stories just behind the Oscar-nominated "Black Panther."
Erik Davis, managing editor at Fandango, said on Thursday, "Captain Marvel' has a great '90s sci-fi vibe with a tone unlike any other Marvel movie."It's one of the most unique superhero origin stories we've ever seen. With surging advance ticket sales, thanks partially to the positive critics' reactions from this week's first screenings, it's clear that this 'Cap' has the right stuff when it comes to moviegoer appeal."
"Wonder Woman" was always going to be the benchmark for comparison when it came to the theatrical debut of "Captain Marvel." At the time of its release, "Wonder Woman" was the first female-led superhero film in more than a decade. It earned $103 million in its opening weekend, a feat "Captain Marvel" hopes to beat on March 8.
Captain Marvel, which hit the theaters on March 8th stars Academy Award winner Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou (Korath), Lee Pace (Ronan), Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan (Minn-Erva), Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Kenneth Mitchell (Joseph Danvers), with Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson), and Jude Law.
