    Our overlords ALWAYS profit from war, both monetarily and in terms of control. They are now creating a war between men and women, the 2 biggest populations on earth. We, the decent human beings, will suffer, and the psychopaths will watch and laugh, like they always do.

        It's WHO PLAYS captain marvel not the fact it's a woman ffs ! There's plenty of brilliant lead female actresses already ! And has been for years ! Brie larson is a wooden sexist actress !

          I cancelled my preorder weeks ago. I don't even want to watch the movie again. I may get it at some point down the road only because it's part of the MCU.

            Captain Marvel made over a billion dollars so it didn't suffer that much. It's not a great movie but I liked it nonetheless. You're full of too much hate dude.

              Wonder Woman doesn't care about 2nd Lieutenant Marvel.
              Wonder Woman is smart.
              Be like Wonder Woman. 🤣😂🤤😅

                Exactly. Be someone who values the strength of women and doesn’t cry over movies that beat it

              I agree the best parts if the movie is when she is not acting and is full CGI. I don't care about her comments about social media and about white people I don't care about her political views or her b******* I only care if the movie was good on the movie was terrible her acting was completely monotone and no emotions.

                  3rd wave feminists are like the latest generation of monster slayers ... living in a time where all the monsters are gone. so they decide to "create" monsters to fight in a desperate attempt to remain relevant.

                            Captain Marvel is the 22nd highest grossing film of all time. While I agree with you that toxic feminism is awful and Captain Marvel isn't a good movie, character etc, your prediction that those factors would hurt the film's Box office was just way off the mark. Unfortunately, we now live in a post liberal sjw society where toxic feminism is not only accepted but promoted.

                              I dont know how the movie was toxic feminism

                              I agree that liberal propaganda is annoying but so are conservative propaganda like this

                              Just nothing but complaining and exaggerating every little problem they have with the world

                              Actually she is pretty mediocre as any other actress and actor goes

                              I just dont feed into propaganda

                              I mean look at this video for instance
                              "Its failing cause it had a 70% drop on a monday"
                              Idiots that spread this sort of false info is why our youth is so dumb. Large drops on Mondays are very common for even the best movies. It's a Monday. No one goes to the movies this day of the week unless it's a holiday

                            I reckon even Kaley Cuoco would have been better than Brie Larson. I love Captain Marvel, male or female & Brie has done nothing for this movie short of destroy it...... :-( ....

                                  I think that the only reason it did so well in its opening weekend is because a lot of marvel fans wanted to see if the movie was actually worth watching a second time and also because the reviews hadn’t been released yet, once reviews became available and initial people had watched it they didn’t feel like going to watch it anymore

                                    Actually it reached a billion in box office

                                    Based on the "71%" drop on a Monday you should have realized this video was dumb to begin with

                                    All movies have a large drop on a Monday. Its Monday. No one goes to the movies on Mondays. Probably not on Sundays either since that's church

                                  I am a huge fan of the MCU. love all the Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk etc. But I haven't seen Captain marvel yet! I'll probably wait until it comes out on Netflix. I only have one reason why is, because Brie Larson plays as Captain marvel. I can wait...

                                      it is absolutely necessary to write to disney emails to ask that brie larson be replaced for the future films. me anyway, if she plays in future movies, I will not go see them, I do not want to pay for someone who spits in my face. besides, she is not a good actress, she should be limited to series B.

                                          Y'know for someone who wants more seats for women of colour, Brie Larson, the pastiest of white privileged woman whose parents went around trying to buy her fame sure did take the role of a black chick Monica Rambeu

                                            I just don’t like Brie as a person or an actor, would have much rather have got a Scarlet Witch or Black Widow movie.

I mean forget Linda Hamilton , Carrie Fisher, Gillian Anderson, and Sigourney Weaver , ... etc ...RIGHT? .. its just fucking ridiculously bombastic when the new woke Hollywood tries to act like their breaking some glass fucking sealing. On top of that you give this new generation of woman character such a little box to live in their utterly boring ... See you take a white male dude like THOR put him in fat suit make him a drunk and give him PTSD and then invite the audience to have a good laugh at his expense and no one gives a shit ... when you can do that to a woman character or minority character you will find true equality .... but right now the regressive left Hollywood types are just jerking each other off for making a flat assed blond dike feminist into a super hero ....LOL

                                                She’s at 994 million dollars. Stop hating!!! Brie Larson was fantastic as Captain Marvel,and I can’t wait to see her take Chris Evans’ place as leader of the Avengers in upcoming movies. It seems like they’re going down the line of her comic book love interest being War Machine. That’s why Don Cheadle was being all extra mean to her in the press run and even in End Game. They’re working on their chemistry. That would be great.

                                                  Oops we made a bit of a mistake there now didn't we. OK yes CM rode the coat tails of Endgame somewhat but then Disney aren't stupid, that was their plan all along, similar to Ant-Man & the Wasp, Black Panther and Infinity War last year. The figures you quote are Monday figures and yeah they're shit I'll give you that but Monday figures ALWAYS take a dive. Also it fits your agenda NOT to mention the steep rise over Friday/Saturday (Sunday's have always been down). The subsequent Friday/Saturday figures since release have been for Friday between +102.7% and +149.8% with Saturday being +14.6% and +74.6%. (The 2 maximum gains were on consecutive days 5 weeks in and pushed the Domestic gross to nearly $384m) The following Mondays have been VERY bad but it's still hitting higher than, say, Wonder Woman was after this period of time and WW still had the benefit an additional 1400 theaters added in August for 2 weeks and it still wasn't taking as much as its theater prescence wasn't as high.

                                                  Will I see a video saying "Sorry I got Captain Marvel wrong, it DIDN'T crater" ? No, as it doesn't fit your agenda of hate towards it. Nothing could have redeemed this movie in your eyes and that's your personal opinion. I don't care much for Larson and she hasn't done herself any favours.

                                                  btw your favourite film Shazam really bombed at the Box Office and looking at Box Office Mojo was down 77.2% on the Monday following release, even further down than Captain Marvel but you failed to mention that. They released it at the wrong time as it could have done quite well otherwise. Also Shazam openned in just 4, yes 4, less theters and an average of $12,688, CM had an average of $35,599, WW was 150 theaters down but average was only $24,790. All were pissed on by Endgame with an average of $76,601 over 4662 theaters. (Actually it's kind of sad that Hellboy did SO badly (hasn't even grossed $100m total yet) and had an RT score of only 15 I mean that is really, really terrible.)

                                                  To me a movie is a movie, end of. CM isn't a great movie don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not defending it on that basis, but I don't see anything overtly politically offensive in it either. Last year's Black Panther was in my opinion a worse movie as it was so damned boring and I have said so many times, although even that was better than Wonder Woman. Each to their own. PS Don't write me off as an SJW defender, I can't stand them either, all I am quoting to you are actual facts and figures from BOM in the same way you do. If you choose to block this then that will only reinforce my opinion that anti SJWs are no better than the SJWs.

                                                      Brie Larson’s stoic, bland, awful acting ass being the “Head” of the MCU will ruin the entirety of Phase 4. Disney pushing these propagandas in EVERY DAMN MOVIE is what will ruin entertainment.

                                                      Show don’t tell has been completely thrown out the window by big studios and it infuriates me to no end.

                                                        You have me incredibly intrigued by the idea of Dwayne Johnson playing Capt. Marvel wearing a blonde wig.

                                                          I still don’t know why I loved Wonder Woman as much as I did but I know that I did. And it shocked me. A lot. It was beautifully executed. Not an easy character to sell either. Great superhero movie. And Alita Battle Angel was amazing. Captain FlatAss and Brie Larson is a dumpster fire.

                                                            I haven’t seen CM, and after everything I have seen of Brie Larson I don’t intend to see CM.
                                                            Marvel has really made a game changing mistake by casting this far left, man hating, totally unlike able woman.
                                                            On a different subject, in my opinion another mistake of Marvel is how they have wasted the talent of Sebastian Stan. This guy, from all accounts is very humble and has worked really hard to put in a stellar performance for Marvel. And what has Marvel done? Given him virtually no screen time (less and less it seems with each movie). Big mistake, Marvel, big mistake. Given the chance Stan would eclipse Chris Evans as Captain America.
