Captain Marvel is coming to theaters next month, and it has already been receiving flak over Brie Larson’s comments about white men. This resulted in angry fans bombing Rotten Tomatoes with negative “reviews.” Recently, the social media embargo lifted, with critics’ reaction being very positive. With all the commotion, Captain Marvel is still on course to be a huge hit at the theaters with presales beating out Wonder Woman, Deadpool and Aquaman.

Fandango, the movie ticketing company, has announced that Captain Marvel is doing great with presales. Of course, Black Panther is still king at the #1 spot for top superhero origin films in presales. Check out the top five superhero origin movies in presales (two weeks before release date) below:

  1. “Black Panther” (2018)
  2. “Captain Marvel” (2019)
  3. “Wonder Woman” (2017)
  4. “Aquaman” (2018)
  5. “Deadpool” (2016)

If we were to include the presales for all the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, Avengers: Infinity War is at the top spot, with Black Panther in second and Captain Marvel in third.
