Marvel is one of the most popular and reliable brands in the history of film.

The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson and Jude Law.

Having opened on March 8, International Women's Day, Disney and Marvel's superheroine film "Captain Marvel" took 596 million yuan, or 89 million USA dollars, in China. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have directed the feature.

Disney CEO Bob Iger has congratulated the cast and crew of Brie Larson's Captain Marvel, saying it's a movie the studio is "very proud of".

Still, she's knocked out all the other solo hero flicks, including all the Iron Mans, Thors and Captain Americas, as well as the first two Avengers movies AND Civil War.

The movie is projected to earn between $156 million to $160 million during its debut weekend at the theatres - expecting this movie to be the biggest blockbuster so far in 2019. Additionally this global launch has also marked the second-largest for any superhero film, for which Avengers: Infinity War still maintains the top spot with $640.5 million.

But "Captain Marvel" continues a streak of box-office juggernauts about women and people of color. Fans who were going in to watch Captain Marvel were probably taken by the greatest surprise of their lives.

Larson has been delighting fans all over the world while she's been promoting "Captain Marvel".

"It was an incredible experience to see her selling popcorn and interacting with her fans", said Susana Moimenta, who attended the movie with her younger cousins, told NJ.com. Despite trolls continuing to post negative reviews, audiences overwhelmingly loved it, giving the film an A Cinemascore, with 80 percent of critics liking it as well, according to Rotten Tomatoes.
