Development of the film began as early as May 2013, and was officially announced in October 2014, making it Marvel Studios' first female-led superhero film. Thus, according to the track record of previous films earning between $150 and $160 million in their opening weekends, "Captain Marvel" appears likely to gross somewhere between $400 and $535 million domestically.

Imagine, you're about to see one of the most anticipated films of the year, and the movie's star turns up to serve you popcorn. The plot follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. In its total opening weekend earnings, "Captain Marvel" ranks 7th among all Marvel films. It has raked in a worldwide box office total of $455 million over the weekend.

Interestingly, Captain Marvel will also be seen in the conclusion of the Avengers franchise, Avengers: Endgame, which releases on April 26.

"Captain Marvel" will wind up with the 18th biggest domestic opening weekend of all time. It is also the best IMAX March opening globally and delivered the second-best IMAX Marvel opening globally behind last year's Avengers: Infinity War.

The movie, starring Brie Larson as Danvers, took in $153 million USA in its first weekend in North American theatres.

That aside, Marvel's done wonders with "Captain Marvel", which could be their counterpart to DC's "Wonder Woman", an origin story that also offers fresh looks at familiar faces - and not in the way you'd expect, either! You have to figure out whether she wanted this life, "and if I can imagine such a life as fulfilling and inspiring and happy".
