The latest instalment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - which features Brie Larson in the titular role - also managed an impressive figure in the U.S. box office, raking in a whopping $455 million overall.

The film, which is Marvel Studios' first female-led feature, wrapped up the weekend with $153 million at the North American domestic box office.

The result came in at the high end of expectations for Captain Marvel, and ranks as one of Marvel's most successful character debuts.

It has been revealed that Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo directed the mid-credits scene in Captain Marvel. "It just took me using the power that I've been given now as Captain Marvel".

Actress Brie Larson, star of "Captain Marvel", appeared at the Clifton AMC Theater Saturday night, much to the delight of fans.

It's also earned another pretty wonderful honor: becoming the biggest opening weekend box office earnings ever for a female-fronted film.

Captain Marvel's box office performance went higher, further, faster than even its sky-high industry tracking estimates.

It wasn't just young women who turned out to see the on-screen adventures of Carol Danvers, the Air Force pilot who becomes an intergalactic hero.

"I don't know if it's ever going to make sense to me", she admitted, later stating, "I feel so lucky that I found, at this stage of my life, like, my person". In 2017, "Wonder Woman" paved the way in hinting to Hollywood that (shocker!) audiences will still turn out for a movie centered on a female protagonist. This success all but ensures a sequel and, presumably, opens the door for more female-led superhero films in the future.

Captain Marvel featured select scenes specially formatted for IMAX theatres with an expanded aspect ratio, which means audiences get to see up to 26% more picture than standard theatres, only in IMAX.

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