  1. Conjecture: China does not have an SJW issue. Deranged people bulling and belittling others for their opinions. In China; people are supportive and naturally helpful to each other. (They may have other issues, but we don’t share the same problems). China see Captain Marvel, as a continuation of the well received Avengers Infinity War; and are eager to see the next instalment, a soup before the entree of EndGame?

    Captain Marvel: Total Foreign Opening weekend is $302,000,000 (Maybe over 4 days?) US Domestic Opening Weekend is $153,000,000. (Over three days?)

    Is Captain Marvel successful?

    Captain Marvel was marketed to the fans of Infinity War. As a replacement hero for the future. Alluding to Brie (Most Powerful) being the one to defeat Thanos. (As you say in the video). You have no choice but to see the film. Captain Marvel should be engaging with Avengers fans; at least the same level as Infinity War (IW), and due to the well received reception of IW; maybe even grow the market?

    Hollywood Reporter – China Opening weekend. Note HR fails to acknowledge AoU.

    “The tentpole’s powerful launch [CM] represents Marvel’s third-biggest opening weekend ever in the country, behind only Avengers: Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War”. — AoU too!!

    Is Captain Marvel successful?

    No, it failed to engage with fans of IW; there is like a ~50% drop of the positive momentum. The Boycott was in part successful. Will the poor reception of CM effect Endgame? What did we get – Internet Censorship + propaganda. All the good from Captain America Civil War to Infinity War – lost.
