Brie Larson is perfect, full stop. The opening weekend for Captain Marvel just proved that by becoming the biggest launch for a female-lead film in history, the second-largest superhero film ever after Avengers: Infinity War, and the sixth-best opening of all time. Does this mean we can get more female superhero films now, please? Captain Marvel is also the first MCU film with a female director, Anna Boden, who wrote the script in addition to co-directing the movie. If you want to know the exact numbers, Captain Marvel made $455 million in ticket sales worldwide during its opening weekend. Super, indeed.
