'Captain Marvel' star surprises fans at Clifton movie theater

Captain Marvel Theatrical Poster

As excitement for the Avengers: Infinity War follow-up continues to build to near-feverish levels, directors Anthony and Joe Russo have announced on Twitter that the movie is nearly finished, the brothers having now completed their cut of the film.

Similarly, in 2017 Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman totaled the box office at $821.74 million, making it the highest-grossing superhero origin film of all time.

Cast member Brie Larson interacts with fans at the premiere for the movie "Captain Marvel" in Los Angeles, California, U.S., March 4, 2019.

Internationally, Captain Marvel even managed to outperform Black Panther's $371 million global launch (which admittedly didn't open in China right away), raking in $455 million to become sixth-biggest global debut of all time.

"Captain Marvel" also cemented itself in the history books, and was the fifth highest worldwide opening weekend of all time, and the second highest for a superhero movie. Yet the pre-release of Captain Marvel has been rife with controversy, with "fake reviews" on both sides plaguing the film's critical integrity.

Directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, the film stars Brie Larson in the title role. Not bad for Marvel's first movie with a female lead, right? "To be honest, I don't want it to feel different", Larson explained.

"I'm kind of over the 'First female blah blah blah, ' and 'Wow, maybe women can actually do the same things that dudes can do - what a insane concept!'" No, if it wasn't like that before, it's because it was wrong.

She shared: "I'm just doing what I can do, based upon my experience and my one body, which is why representation on screen is so important".

"It'll be what it is, and I think there's gonna be lot there for people to digest and feel", she continued.
