Fans are now counting days until Brie Larson's Captain Marvel hits the theatres. The film is all set for a worldwide release on March 8 but the film's early booking commenced in the US as early as January and has ever since been soaring high. The film has been receiving positive responses from its previews and now we hear that the film has got a strong response for advance tickets. According to reports, the film will turn out to be a huge money spinner given its early tickets sale.
Buzz is that Captain Marvel has surpassed the pre-sale tickets numbers that DC's Wonder Woman had managed to gather. Captain Marvel is preceding the release of Avengers: End Game and there's no doubt that fans are going to look for clues for the Avengers finale in this one. In terms of superhero origin stories, Captain Marvel is second-highest after 2018's Black Panther which until now has the highest advance-ticket sales. What's amazing is that the Brie Larson film has gone beyond DC's Aquaman too. It is amazing considering Aquaman had a positive response in its favour from the start whereas Captain Marvel has been through immense negative buzz.

After collecting as much as $2.2 billion worldwide with Avengers Infinity War and Black Panther, Marvels studios is now aiming at a bigger number with Captain Marvel and Avengers: End Game release. Predictions for the opening weekend box office collections of Captain Marvel by trade analysts have been in the range of $100 million. Considering Wonder Woman was the first female superhero led film, its comparisons with Captain Marvel are bound to happen and hence will Captain Marvel surpass Wonder Woman's $103 million opening weekend is the question.
Captain Marvel traces the story of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers (her alter ego) who steps into an intergalactic war after realising her powers to save the planet. It also stars Jude Law and Samuel L Jackson as a young Nick Fury, The film is releasing on March 8 worldwide and it is a double whammy of sorts because the film releases over International Women's Day and what's better than a strong feminist superhero icon in theatres.
