"Captain Marvel" also cemented itself in the history books, and was the fifth highest global opening weekend of all time, and the second highest for a superhero movie. Brie Larson gave fans catching a screening of "Captain Marvel" a thrill by serving them snacks, taking selfies and thanking them for seeing her new flick. It seems likely that many felt drawn to the film's societal benchmarks, being the first female-led Marvel movie, as well as the first to feature a female director.

"Captain Marvel" has responded to doubters, trolls and a pernicious Hollywood myth in the strongest way possible - with a monster first weekend. Internationally, the film pulled in a whopping $302 million, which makes the movie the second-highest internationally grossing superhero movie behind Avengers: Infinity War. Oh, and it had the sixth best worldwide opening of any film ever.

"Mostly, I'm thrilled for the doors this will open", DeConnick, who was a consultant on "Captain Marvel", told The Washington Post.

As Variety reports, the movie pulled in $153 million in over 4,000 theaters in North America alone (soaring past the $125 million opening weekend projections).

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

It's been a sluggish start to the year at the movies. Males accounted for 55 percent of audiences, while 74 percent of moviegoers were over the age of 25. Disney, the box-office leader in recent years, has several additional blockbuster films lined up in the coming weeks, including a "Dumbo" live-action remake and "Avengers: Endgame" in late April. It's made $45.9 million in 10 days. With $242.2 million worldwide, "Green Book" is the highest grossing best picture-winner since "The King's Speech".
