Now Disney is destroying the Marvel Comic Universe:
I previously wrote how Brie Larson is a huge gamble for Disney and Kevin Feige – especially following the failure of Star Wars: The Last Jedi – and now the Captain Marvel movie looks to be in big, big trouble, unfortunately.
Back in January, following the NCAA trailer, it was reported that Captain Marvel was projected to have a massive $160 million opening weekend with some estimates even offering $180 million.
However, the bad news for Kevin Feige and Captain Marvel is that those projections have now dropped upwards of $80 million (note: article has been updated to reflect million and not percent), as it is reported the flick may only open around $100 million.
The latest projections come from Deadline, with the site offering Captain Marvel will now open in line with other Marvel origin films, but won’t come anywhere near Black Panther’s $202 million. Interestingly enough, further evidence Captain Marvel is not as highly regarded among fans comes from the fact that Black Panther supporters have not supported the Captain Marvel gofundme to get girls to go see the movie.
There is also a huge problem with Brie Larson who has been spinning Captain Marvel as a feminist movie, essentially isolating the audience, and she even recently came out against white males for some reason. I’m actually surprised and disappointed in Kevin Feige that he is allowing Larson to destroy the MCU audience, and that Disney and CEO Bob Iger haven’t learned anything from Star Wars.
It’s mildly amusing to observe that the media simply can’t grasp that Disney WANTS to destroy Star Wars and Marvel and everything else that appeals to white men. That’s why they acquired it in the first place.
