Avengers: Infinity War smashes superhero box office record with £60m takings

Share

The Marvel Cinematic Universe produced its biggest ever hit with Avengers: Infinity War, the 19th film in the superhero franchise that began with 2008's Iron Man.

This would be a huge leap for muslim representation in superhero movies. Should Thanos and Star-Lord have had a dance-off in the recent Avengers film?

In a BBC interview, Feige explained that the embiggening hero's debut would follow that of her namesake, Captain Marvel, who debuts in her own solo film in early 2019. Just like all other new Marvel fans, he did not feel shy to admit that it is quite hard to understand the movie if you haven't already watched the movie.

Gillan admits her regret that Marvel was not the first to release a female-led superhero movie, saying "look at the success of Wonder Woman".

Ms. Marvel was only recently introduced in the comic books.

Now, AIW is the fifth highest-grossing film of all-time in global markets, only behind Avatar ($2.02 billion), Titanic ($1.52 billion), Furious 7 ($1.16 billion), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($1.13 billion). The teenage character, Kamala Khan, was first introduced in 2014 by Muslim writer G. Willow Wilson, artist Adrian Alphona, and with the help of their editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker. I'm sure some of you are wondering: who is Ms. Marvel aka Kamala Khan?

Will Avengers: Infinity War become the highest grossing film of all time?

Fellow Marvel adventure Black Panther is also continuing to pull in audiences 12 weeks after its release.

At the present time in the MCU, we know that the following films are coming; Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel, Avengers 4, Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3 and a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Kamala adopted the name Ms Marvel after drawing inspiration from her idol Carol Danvers, who became Captain Marvel. She has even had the honor to join a new Avengers team for the greater good.

I couldn't be more excited for a potential Ms. Marvel movie featuring Kamala Khan.
