Anyways, box office success is never equal to the quality of the movie.
Captain obvious everyone!
But Captain Marvel being the highest female superhero movie is not a bold claim. It’s called reality. On that note, Captain Marvel only happens to be a part of the biggest film franchise and most revered
superhero film franchise, so this isn’t your typical mediocre-movie-made -a-lotta-of-money kinda a deal. The film still sucks? Yeah, yeah... naysayers and their broken records. But although CM far from won over everyone, the majority (which includes critics) still had far more good things to say about this film. (Spare me the ludicrous reactionary talking points/conspiracies.)
WW will be remembered more fondly? That’ll be a first for a DCEU movie. It nonetheless won’t be that simple, fella. 5 years from now Captain Marvel will still be around and you can bet she’ll be more popular than ever. What’s more, the franchise she’s a part of remains stronger than ever and Captain Marvel will officially be the face of this franchise moving forward. And if in true Marvel fashion the CM sequel manages to impress many more, then her first movie will only be forgotten by naysayers such as yourself. Wonder Woman? Doesn’t matter if her sequel lives up to the first one or not because she’s already a beloved character. Yet, one lousy movie can hold her cinematic self back—similar to what happened to Batman. Captain Marvel? She was a character that was unknown to mainstream audiences, and despite that her first movie left WW in the dust.
Furthermore, with this being the meticulous and quality-striving Marvel Studios, you srlsy think there will be no room for improvement when it comes to a CM sequel (useless question to ask if you’re against this franchise)? Oh, predictably there will be those that will trash it no matter how well it does with critics and audiences. However, if Marvel doesn’t lose any steam within the next 5 years (and there’s nothing that suggests it will), then you can bet your ass Captain Marvel is going to be taking the world by storm... the film’s box office numbers and the buzz surrounding it say she already has... and likely won’t be outshined by the currently more recognizable Wonder Woman. So sorry not sorry but this “forgettable” first Captain Marvel movie will at worst be seen as a decent origin story that had more potential (MCU connection notwithstanding). But that potential, partner, is something I’m certain audiences will witness in the next few years.
So yeah, Captain Marvel isn’t going away anytime soon. And as always, bring it on haters/incels! Haters were so convinced Captain Marvel was going to be a complete failure, and then when the film painfully proved them wrong, loser haters unsurprisingly made hundreds of pathetic excuses. Lolz. I can’t wait for round 2!
Why so desperate to prove a point? But lets continue this useless discussion.
"But Captain Marvel being the highest female superhero movie is not a bold claim. It’s called reality"
The original claim in the OP was Captain Marvel is the "most popular female superhero CHARACTER" and not "highest grossing female superhero MOVIE", and that is not reality. Yes, it is the highest grossing female superhero MOVIE right now, nobody is denying that, do a bit of reading before you go all gaga next time.
"On that note, Captain Marvel only happens to be a part of the biggest film franchise and most revered superhero film franchise, so this isn’t your typical mediocre-movie-made -a-lotta-of-money kinda a deal"
Such bland logic. Captain Marvel being part of the biggest film franchise and most revered superhero film franchise does not automatically make it a revered superhero film, its still a mediocre-movie-made -a-lotta-of-money kinda a deal only, just like Iron Man 3 thanks only to the goodwill that people have on MCU. The franchise is in such a good position that it can release any unknown character, have a average story and its still going to set the cash registers ringing.
"WW will be remembered more fondly? That’ll be a first for a DCEU movie."
Lol lol lol....I am no DCEU fan, I just like good movies and that includes the comic book genre. I hope you were not expecting me to get triggered. Let me try and get you triggered, DC has produced the greatest comic book film and the greatest comic book film trilogy, hell marvel based movies like Logan, Spider Man 2 are much greater than anything MCU has produced yet. Just please don't come up with "but....but...billions of dollars".
Everything else you said are just assumptions about future and you know future just happens to be the right tool for keyboard warriors to predict and have a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment in their lives.
5 years down the line, the sequel for Captain Marvel can be the next TDK and Wonder Woman 1984 can be the next......you know a mediocre film like Captain Marvel. 5 years from now the entire DCEU may burn down and all MCU's irritating fanboys wet dreams of world domination may come true. But how will they live with nothing to scream about in online forums.
But right now as things stand, Wonder Woman the CHARACTER is more popular than Captain Marvel the CHARACTER. People will remember Wonder Woman the 2017 film more fondly than Captain Marvel the 2019 film.
By the way, I personally feel Wonder Woman is the 2nd most overrated comic book film after Black Panther while Captain Marvel got a lot of undeserved hate.
Wow, just reading your posts makes me feel so bad for you. Lol.
You must really love Captain Marvel. Hey, whatever makes you happy.
I'm personally not a fan of flawless characters who go through no challenges and never have anything to overcome. I find characters like that very bland and boring. I'm glad she wasn't in Endgame very much.
And the constant preaching and lecturing from "strongest avenger" Brie Larson 24/7 assures me that I won't be watching Captain Marvel anytime soon. She acts like she started all the Marvel movies and she runs the show the way she's talking. It's getting pretty obnoxious. I've got nothing against her personally...I thought she was amazing in Room, but the self righteous preaching since she's become Captain Marvel really turns me off. When Thanos decked her with the inifinity stone I wasn't upset about that, haha.
Wonder Woman is a much more popular character. In my opinion Captain Marvel benefited a lot from the overall success of the Marvel films in general that have been going for 11 years now, and being sandwiched in between the two biggest Marvel movies to ever grace the screen.
I'm not making excuses though. Good for Captain Marvel and the feminazis. They have a well earned victory in their constant battle and struggle against the evil patriarchy that is holding them down so much (eye roll). Haha.
Still, Marvel could release a movie about a turd floating in the toilet and it would break box office records, so it is what it is.
I haven't seen Captain Marvel, and I wasn't a fan of the character from the short time she was in Endgame, so I probably will bow out of The Marvel movies from here on out. If Captain Marvel and her Justin Beiber haircut is the new "leader" of the Avengers, then I'm not very interested anymore.
I don't go to the movies for 2 hour public service announcements. I'm sure millions of people will though, and the movies will still take in the cash until people finally get sick of them.
