‘Captain Marvel’ Cheers Theaters After a Dismal Start to 2019

'Captain Marvel' box office collection Day 1: The Brie Larson starrer records the second highest opening for a Hollywood release Captain Marvel soars to Marvel’s seventh biggest opening with $61.4 million

The presentation of the roster is also far more fitting with its medium, due to how the characters on the roster sport unique, colourful costumes instead of the uniformed attire of the movie, with Dr. Minerva wearing an outfit similar to Danvers' original Ms. Marvel costume and Atlas wearing the exact same costume that Mar-Vell wore in his MU debut.

South Korea led the rest of the pack with $24.1 million, marking the highest March opening weekend ever, 22% ahead of Black Panther.

According to Lashana Lynch, Brie Larson is the flawless person to play Captain Marvel.

The 70-year-old actor has played top S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since it began with the 2008 film Iron Man and has since gone on to star in movies with nearly all the franchise's heroes.

With that in mind, us expecting to see a pure adaptation of any Captain Marvel comic was probably foolish from the very start.

Carol Danvers herself popped up at a screening of the film and the crowd completely lost it. Watch Larson, wearing a Captain Marvel track jacket, stroll in with a movie soda and hear the crowd react. I brought my 12 year old son with me for his perspective as he has seen all the superhero movies and loves them, though he wasn't sure he would care for this one as much since he didn't think he would identify with the lead character.

Captain Marvel hit theaters this weekend and introduced the world to some seriously powerful women.

The scene centers around Captain Marvel meeting the other heroes, and it explains why Fury has never used the handy pager to call her in before.

Brie stressed that the new superhero movie can be enjoyed without even considering the issue of diversity.

"With Marvel, nothing surprises me", she added. The film has opened better than two of the major grossers of 2019, "Uri: The Surgical Strike" and "Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi". (US readers should check out Fandango or Atom Tickets.) It follows on from last year's Avengers: Infinity War post-credit end scene, in which Shield boss Nick Fury was shown in the last few seconds before he turned to dust paging someone for help.

Internationally, the film has grossed an estimated $302 million, making it the fifth highest worldwide opening weekend of all time and the second highest superhero opening weekend of all time, behind only "Avengers: Infinity War".
