The 29-year-old actress - who stars as the titular character in "Captain Marvel" - has admitted to loving her on-screen character's relatability.

It's no coincidence that the two solo movies set prior to, and released in-between, Avengers Infinity War and Avengers Endgame were Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel.

After beating Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu's Badla on day 1, Captain Marvel continued racing ahead than him.

This weekend, Captain Marvel's Brie Larson made a surprise appearance at AMC Clifton Commons theater in New Jersey.

The movie starring Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson takes place in 1995 when a former U.S air force fighter Carol Dancers (Larson) turns into Captain Marvel when she is infused with alien superpowers when the Earth is caught in the centre of "galactic conflict".

Brie Larson's "Captain Marvel" is showing plenty of global power with a $302 million worldwide launch - the fifth highest of all-time.

Brie felt it was important to play a superhero character that the movie-watching public could identify with. "I want to know who's on the end of that thing".

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

CinemaScore, which relies on interviews with audience members coming out of theatres, found crowds very much liked "Captain Marvel", giving it an A rating. "You guys are so awesome to come opening weekend". Through March 3, ticket sales were down 26 per cent according to Comscore. "The film recorded the second highest opening for a Hollywood release, however, remained far behind the highest opening record of ' Avengers - Infinity War".

Universal's third weekend of "How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World" led the rest of the pack with $14.7 million at 4,402 locations for a 17-day domestic total of $119.7 million.
