Right up front, I’m hesitant to write this post because, on the one hand, if Captain Marvel doesn’t beat every single comic book movie by a trillion dollars, low-level “men” on the internet will move the goalposts and argue that it’s a failure even though it is clearly not. On the other hand, my absolute jam is making sure those low-level “men” know that their thoughts and opinion are hilariously insignificant because despite all of their proclamations that Captain Marvel is a flop, its advance ticket sales are already outpacing a buttload of superhero films to the point where it’s only behind Black Panther.

SYFY WIRE reports:

“If we’re looking at superhero origin stories, Black Panther is No. 1, Captain Marvel is now No. 2,” Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis tells SYFY WIRE. “So it’s outpacing films like Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Deadpool, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange. It’s outpacing all of those films in advance ticket sales at the same point in the sales cycle.”

The early reviews for Captain Marvel are overwhelmingly positive, and according to Davis, that’s definitely playing a role in its already steady climb in presale tickets. It’s almost like Marvel knows what it’s doing, and only a complete f*cking idiot would bet against them at this point. You’d have to be severely triggered to not see these glowing reviews coming a mile away:

#ComicsGate is nothing.
