Captain Marvel tracking for $100 million+ opening weekend

With only three weeks left to go until the highly-anticipated premiere of Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel, Variety reports that Marvel’s first female-led superhero film is on track to earn more than a $100 million when it finally makes its debut on March 8. Should the early tracking numbers hold, this would put the film on par with DC’s Wonder Woman which debuted in 2017 with a whopping $103 million during its opening weekend.

Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers (Brie Larson, Room) as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, the film is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Reprising their roles from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy are Djimon Hounsou and Lee Pace, and returning once again to a Marvel Studios film will be Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson.

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel is directed by the writing/directing team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, whose credits include Mississippi Grind and Half Nelson. An all-star collective of accomplished writers penned the screenplay, including Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch (Glow) and Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck.
