Looks like Marvel Studios may have their 21st consecutive victor as Captain Marvel dominated the worldwide box office in her opening weekend. The opening marks the third-biggest ever for the month of March and the seventh-biggest Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of all time.

Set in the 1990s, "Captain Marvel" follows Danvers' journey as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes. The domestic total of $153 million is Marvel's second-highest opening for a movie centered on a new character, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Captain Marvel's box office performance went higher, further, faster than even its sky-high industry tracking estimates.

Captain Marvel shattered expectations, and the hopes of hundreds of angry trolls, this past weekend.

Hollywood is a numbers town and the box office figures don't lie - which is why movie execs will be busy planning a fresh slate of diverse superhero films.

This makes it the fifth highest global opening weekend of all time and the second highest superhero opening weekend of all time - with Avengers: Infinity War taking the top spot at an opening of $640m.

The opening weekend takings are also the biggest for a female-led film. With films like this, that do end up going worldwide, because a lot of the time, with smaller movies, you don't know if they will or not, it means you get to have a really extensive conversation, and I'm so grateful that this film has so many pockets in it. To be honest, I don't want it to feel different.

"I feel like the more we talk about it, the more we perpetuate the myth that it's an impossible task". That was just wrong.

Captain Marvel is now in cinemas.

She shared: "I'm just doing what I can do, based upon my experience and my one body, which is why representation on screen is so important".
