Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes. The only movie with a female lead that's opened better globally was "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", which grossed $529 million when it debuted in 2015.
Marvel also shared a few photos of Larson serving fans popcorn from the concession stand.
The 70-year-old actor has played top S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since it began with the 2008 film Iron Man and has since gone on to star in movies with nearly all the franchise's heroes.
For a start, the group lacks the presence of any version of Captain Marvel or Yon-Rogg, making them a far more minor team in the comics.
Cast member Brie Larson interacts with fans at the premiere for the movie "Captain Marvel" in Los Angeles, California, U.S., March 4, 2019.

The anti-"Captain Marvel" campaign included the flooding of Rotten Tomatoes audience scores, which artificially drove down the film's score to 55 per cent fresh from more than 44,000 votes as of Sunday. "I want to know who's on the end of that thing".
CinemaScore, which relies on interviews with audience members coming out of theatres, found crowds very much liked "Captain Marvel", giving it an A rating. Yes, the number is definitely lesser than Avengers:Infinity War that released past year, but as a solo outing, it deserves a round of applause.
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. Thi alludes to the fact that Fury and Marvel have been in communication for years.
