The film's box office success comes after a months-long campaign of negative user reviews from people who had not yet seen it, but were angry about Brie Larson's comments relating to diversity in Hollywood ... or just, y'know angry in general.

It did that and then some.

The box office success - taking $455 million around the world including £13 million in the United Kingdom - comes despite a concerted campaign of online abuse from Marvel diehards opposed to Larson's casting.

According to trade analysts, the film is eyeing to collect over Rs 40 crore in the opening weekend.

Brie Larson-led Captain Marvel witnessed a limited growth on the second day of its release. 9 of the top 10 Captain Marvel locations in China were IMAX theatres. And it's not just special because the huge box office haul from last weekend is making sad little fanboys cry while holding their blankies. But it's rarer for the star of a film to appear in a random theater on the other side of the country.

Captain Marvel has already sky rocketed up the box office charts.

She was a former boxer herself, compiling a 5-1 record before retiring from the ring in 2001, the Houston Chronicle reported . After her sixth bout, in which she lost, she retired.

More than likely Spider-Man: Far From Home will be the final Stan Lee cameo in a Marvel Studios movie. That puts Captain Marvel in the company of movies like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Star Wars.

Even without the same kind of name recognition that Wonder Woman benefitted from, "Captain Marvel" soared past that start.

As if to prove how little added hype this movie needs, Marvel's own Avengers: Endgame web page remains more or less blank: There's a countdown clock, the trailer from last December that's been viewed almost 90 million times. and not much else.

'You see that in their track record.

Those numbers have earned Captain Marvel the title of sixth biggest global debut, 18th biggest domestic opening, and the biggest opening of 2019. The post-credit scene of the Infinity War surely hyped up the buzz for everyone who is waiting for Avengers: Endgame, and it had Captain Marvel connect to it.

In "Captain Marvel's" case, timing isn't everything, but it certainly does help.
