Date: 11th March 2019
Captain Marvel netted the sixth-largest worldwide opening weekend at the box office, and the second-largest global debut for a comic book film.
With an impressive $153 million debut in North America, Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe title totaled a global opening weekend of $455 million, or the sixth highest global debut and the biggest opening of 2019, surpassing the entire top 10 total of the same weekend last year.
Disney distribution chief Cathleen Taff told Variety that the results show that "Captain Marvel" again tapped into the worldwide fan base for McU movies and credited Marvel president Kevin Feige with expanding the diversity of superheroes, with Brie Larson as the first female lead character.
"With Marvel, nothing surprises me", she added. "The fans are loyal and come out. Kevin Feige continues to deliver amazing content that pushes the envelope on diversity so anyone can see themselves as a superhero."
