Industry experts are predicting that Captain America: Civil War could have the biggest opening for a Marvel movie yet.
With glowing reviews from Variety‘s Justin Chang, who hailed the film as “the most mature and substantive picture to have yet emerged from the Marvel Cinematic Universe”, and superlative word of mouth from preview audiences, this could see the film debuting to the tune of $200 million in the US.
If it does succeed in breaking the magic $200 million barrier then it will be the fourth film in Hollywood history to do so. To date only Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World and the first Avengers movie have achieved that accolade. Considering that Cap’s first two cinematic adventures opened to $65.1 million and $95 million respectively, it shows just how much of an event a Marvel movie has become since Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk debuted in 2008.
The excitement of seeing Team Cap face off against Team Iron Man, with the introductions of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther into the MCU, is also bolstering interest.
