Captain Marvel Advance ticket sales soar high
Following the start of advance ticket sales for Captain Marvel on Monday, Fandango has revealed that in its first 24 hours the film ahs entered the top three MCU first-day pre-sellers, surpassed only by Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther.
“We’re seeing fantastic advance ticket sales for ‘Captain Marvel’ because it’s a historic film for Marvel Studios, one that fans have been waiting to see for a decade,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “As the studio’s first female-driven superhero film, ‘Captain Marvel’ is a benchmark moment for the genre, for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and for star Brie Larson, who will play the most powerful Marvel superhero to date.”
Captain Marvel is beating Marvel Cinematic Universe ensemble movies like Captain America: Civil War and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, as well as MCU solo outings like Ant-Man and The Wasp, Thor: Ragnarok and Doctor Strange, in their first 24 hours of presales on Fandango.
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.

Brie Larson is joined in the film by Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, with Annette Bening, and Jude Law. 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.
