“Captain Marvel” isn’t going any higher, further, or faster at the box office.
The wondersthe joint continuation of Captain Marvel, WandaVisionAnd Ms. Marvel, featuring heroes from all three films and shows, struggled to find a large audience in theaters over the weekend. The film grossed an estimated $47 million from Friday to Sunday – and that’s bad enough to make it the worst opening weekend in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The worst franchise for the MCU to date was 2008 The incredible Hulkwhich grossed $55 million in its first three days in theaters – and which certainly cost far less to produce than The wonders.
This is appreciated worldwide The wonders grossed around $110 million over the weekend, which is also one of the worst (worldwide) opening weekends in all of Marvel. From a financial perspective, the news is simply not good.

From a creative perspective, the news isn’t much better. The wonders received a “B” from CinemaScore, which isn’t a strong showing either. (For comparison: Eternal got a B. The incredible Hulk got an A.) On Rotten Tomatoes, The wonders has 62 percent – good enough to be considered “fresh” (and not to be considered the worst MCU film), but not by much. In our own review of the film here at ScreenCrush, we wrote:
I wouldn’t call The wonders the worst movie Marvel has ever made. But it’s definitely the messiest and sweatiest. It barely lets up for 100 frantic but strangely unexciting minutes, as if everyone on screen was worried that if they paused for even a moment everything around them would dissolve into nothingness, as the Sacred Timeline continues Loki.
So what went wrong? Well, the just-ended writers’ strike and the inability of the film’s many stars to promote the film until the very last minute certainly didn’t help. The same goes for the mixed and lukewarm reviews. But the bigger problem may be Marvel itself, which has released a lot of product in both film and television in recent years, more and more of which has fallen short of its once fairly high and consistent standard. I talked to people who liked it The wondersbut I haven’t really met many people who feel special passionate About that – their reviews, which are positive at best, are that it was a pleasant 100 minutes in the cinema. Compare that to the intensity of the reaction to something like Avengers: Endgameor even the first Captain Marvelwhich grossed $1.1 billion worldwide.
Sure, Marvel’s last film (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was great), but before that it was so-so Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniaalong with the very disappointing Secret invasion TV show. The fans had become so loyal to Marvel that they came anything with her name on it. It seems like they’ve had to take revenge on this strategy so many times that they’re now becoming a little more selective. Despite it, The wonders is still in the cinema.
