Brie Larson Surprises Captain Marvel Fans on Opening Weekend

"Captain Marvel" also breaks new ground for Disney in that it's the first female-led superhero movie from Marvel.

It did that and then some. That makes it the seventh-largest domestic opening weekend for a Marvel Studios movie, coming in above Guardians of the Galaxy and below Iron Man 3.

"Captain Marvel" has responded to doubters, trolls and a pernicious Hollywood myth in the strongest way possible - with a monster first weekend.

Forbes reports that Captain Marvel is also the second-biggest solo superhero effort since Black Panther raked in $202 million in 2018.

"We have high expectations for a blockbuster like Captain Marvel".

Similarly, in 2017 Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman totaled the box office at $821.74 million, making it the highest-grossing superhero origin film of all time.

Helmed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel has largely received a positive response from the audience as well as film critics. It is the second MCU prequel and potentially one of Marvel's most important films to date, spotlighting Brie Larson's Carol Danvers as she rediscovers her past, and the roots of a centuries-old conflict between two alien civilisations. It opened up at No. 1 in the box office and brought in about $150 million for its opening weekend. It's not just her presence that might have surprised you but the fact that she was working the concessions stand.

It's the sixth largest worldwide debut ever. Some fans claimed Larson's hero didn't smile enough, a charge she responded to with doctored pictures of previous male Marvel superheroes with awkwardly full grins. Conversely, it's possible that the same benchmarks drew increased vitriol from the other side, who questioned star Brie Larson's apparent dismissive nature during a press run. Disney positioned "Captain Marvel" to be a key link between "Avengers: Infinity War" and its follow-up, "Avengers: Endgame", the epic conclusion that arrives in theaters this summer. "You see that in their track record".

"Mostly, I'm thrilled for the doors this will open", DeConnick, who was a consultant on "Captain Marvel", told The Washington Post.
