higher, further, faster: Captain Marvel has set a new record for comments….


It’s not entirely surprising to see which movies in “4-Color to 35-Millimeter: The Great Superhero Movie Rewatch” get lots of comments and which ones don’t. If the movie has Superman or Batman or the X-Men in it, or if it’s part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then it’s likely to get tons more comment than if any of those things aren’t true.

But today Captain Marvel finally unseated Avengers: Age of Ultron for the top spot in most comments. Can’t say I’m surprised, given how much this movie meant to a lot of people and, conversely, how many people are really invested in trashing this movie about a powerful woman, gee gosh golly whillikers. Plus there’s the people in the middle who are neither enthusiastic about it nor revolted by it, who have made their voices heard as well.

Here’s the current leaderboard (all those with 75 comments or more):

  1. 180: Captain Marvel
