'Avengers: Infinity War,' buoyed by China, becomes the biggest superhero movie ever

'Avengers: Infinity War,' buoyed by China, becomes the biggest superhero movie ever

The movie, starring Gabrielle Union as a mother who must rescue her two children from a hostage situation, ever-so-slightly bested pre-release predictions of $15 million.

There are several characters from the comic books that are being prepared to grace the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) for the very first time. In this case, Kamala gets her name, Ms. Marvel, from Carol Danvers, who starts her superhero career with that codename.

Marvel is planning to introduce its first Muslim superhero. There was so much emphasis put on him, that when you go "we gotta do reshoots because test screenings loved that character", but having done True Grit with 7 minutes of screen time, but you're talking about him the whole time, he feels like he's in the entire movie.

So there's definitely scope for Ms Marvel to make her appearance at some point.

The latest updates and spoilers for "Captain Marvel" reveal Marvel Studios plans to add comic book fan-favorite Kamala Khan, a.k.a. Disney chief Bob Iger recently confirmed that while Avengers 4 will be a "significant conclusion" for the MCU as we know it, the studio had no plans to stop making more Marvel movies. The superhero film raked in $200 million (1.26 billion RMB) in the world's second-largest market, far surpassing the opening weekend performances of other Marvel movies.

He said: 'Captain Marvel's shooting right now with Brie Larson.

That's the thinking of fans, who couldn't be more excited... But it appears that the MCU is about to get a touch more variety with the inclusion of Ms Marvel.

Hopefully, the success of films like Black Panther and Wonder Woman has shown Hollywood that it's ok to make blockbuster films that embrace diversity and ethnicity.

Box office figures of that size would probably be enough to stop Avengers: Infinity War ending up as 2018's biggest film in the UK. It's a lovely, relatable story ripe for a feature film adaptation.
