According to the Hollywood Reporter, Captain Marvel brought in $153 million in its opening weekend in USA theaters.

The Marvel Studios origin movie raked in a whopping $153 million at the domestic box office, making it the best-performing opening weekend of the year.

Meanwhile, Brie previously revealed she hopes "Captain Marvel" will spark a global conversation about diversity.

Is Captain Marvel destined to be a film in which objectivity is benched in favor of stance-taking?

On a larger scale, the commercial success of "Captain Marvel" sets the stage for an increase in female-led superhero movies. DC's first female-led superhero film - starring Gal Gadot a directed by Patty Jenkins - launched with $103 million at the domestic box office. What could be better than watching the actual Captain Marvel in theaters? The film has opened in most countries except Japan. Some fans were responding to the film's "liberal politics and diverse casting", as well as "Larson's call for more women and people of color in film", according to The Washington Post's Steven Zeitchik. Comscore/Screen Engine's PostTrak survey of audiences resulted in an 81 percent total positive score with a strong 66 percent of audiences saying they would "definitely recommend" the film.

Schuh made the suggestion on Twitter, in which he pointed to a recent update to Chrome's Stable Channel for desktop systems. Chrome OS users can update their version by selecting settings, then going to the menu and selecting "About Chrome OS".

Taff declined to address "Captain Marvel" foes but applauded Marvel and Kevin Feige for propelling a movie that expanded the Marvel universe.

'You see that in their track record.

The box office success - taking $455 million around the world including £13 million in the United Kingdom - comes despite a concerted campaign of online abuse from Marvel diehards opposed to Larson's casting.

In "Captain Marvel's" case, timing isn't everything, but it certainly does help. The opening marks the third-biggest ever for the month of March and the seventh-biggest Marvel Cinematic Universe debut of all time. 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.
