This isn’t the news those people who have been screaming that Captain Marvel would “flop” will want to hear. Just like last year when Black Panther‘s advanced ticket sales silenced those people claiming it wouldn’t be a hit; Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel is out performing all other MCU movies with the exception of Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther in its first 24 hours.

I checked my local theaters, and at this point two months out most of the opening night showings are nearly sold out and there are some theaters that already are. So people hoping the movie will flop because of who the lead character is are probably not going to have a good couple of months as the movie looks like it’ll be another success for Marvel.
