The Marvel Universe is undoubtedly one of most loved fictional universes that has been created. However DC also gives Marvel competition and Dc’s loyal devotees stand by it. While film affectionados tend to enjoy both the universes, its still Marvel that has taken the world by storm.
Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame has sent fans into frenzy. The film is all set to release on 26th April worldwide and its advanced booking has broken all records in North America.
While there is always going to be rivalry between DC and Marvel, never have Marvel and DC released their films together. Releasing DC and Marvel films together may just be a fitting way of gauging the popularity of the two.
Well this Friday, Pakistan will see the release DC’s Shazam! and Marvel’s Captain Marvel. Captain Marvel released on 8th March worldwide however it was unable to release in Pakistan. The film will now be releasing alongside Shazam!
The two films will be fighting for footfalls. Captain Marvel is a crucial film as it plays a vital role in the completion of Avengers saga. As Avengers 4 approaches, many will be rushing to see Captain Marvels in order to fill in all the blanks. Apart from that, Marvel generally enjoys more popularity over DC in Pakistan.
Marvel has evolved into a brand over the years in Pakistan whereas DC films have never been able to do well here. Although Dc’s Wonder woman and Aquaman’s performance were decent however it is still Marvel’s Thor and Black Panther which raked in more business.
Shazam on the other hand has received raving reviews from North America. The film has 95 rotten tomatoes which is an amazing rating. Shazam’s raving reviews and Captain Marvel’s pull due to its significance to Endgame will be in a tough competition this Friday!
However, Captain Marvel is anticipated to outperform Shazam. Previously, Avengers: Infinity War collected around 2 million USD last year in Pakistan beating DC films with a good margin.
