Captain Marvel is currently ruling the global Box Office right now. With more than enough money in its bank account to make up for its operating budget right in the opening weekend itself, the movie is going places. As more and more people flock to the theatres to watch the movie in all its glory, new information, information that is utterly bizarre and strange, is coming up!! One new theory has been proposed by a diehard fan that claims that the Captain Marvel movie is somehow related to the Umbrella Academy Universe, and both share a connection that is much too deep to be comprehended by the human mind.
Now, this might be a lot to take in. How is a superhero from another universe, called the Marvel Cinematic Universe, be related by any chance to a superhero team from another universe, shared by a group of superheroes belonging to an entirely different publication? It just does not make any sense!! But the fact is – there is one striking similarity between the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie and the Netflix TV Series that has defied all odds. It is based on this fact that the entire theory of Captain Marvel and Umbrella Academy being from the same universe checks out completely!
Captain Marvel has already crossed over the 500 Million USD mark in just about four days and is still going extremely strong at the box Office. The initial projections which claimed that Captain Marvel will earn about 1 Billion dollars at the Box Office is about to be proved wrong. It will earn way more if it manages to keep up the current pace. But with so much money in the bank already, why did Marvel have to go and make this reference to the Umbrella Academy to grab more fans? Were they unsure about the performance of the movie and wanted to ensure it had earned a name for itself by referencing the greatest Marvel Comics superhero TV Show of 2019??
The connection is even more bizarre than the questions posed! The connection between Captain Marvel and the Umbrella Academy is simple – the birth date of the superheroes of the Umbrella Academy is the same as Carol Danvers’. What does that even mean??
In the Umbrella Academy, a group of 43 children were born all over the world at the same time, to women who were not even pregnant the previous day. All of these children share one amazing attribute – they each have one unique ability or superpower. Sir Reginald Hargreeves, eccentric billionaire, collects seven of these children and trains them into becoming superheroes. But after the billionaire is mysteriously found dead in his room, the now estranged family comes together to solve his murder.
Our question still remains – what is the significance of the similarity of the birth date of Captain Marvel and the superhero members of the Umbrella Academy??
