Captain Marvel: 20 Easter Eggs And References Explained

Captain Marvel

As was expected, the newly released Captain Marvel movie offers a few answers, and since we're going to be discussing them here, be warned that spoilers lie ahead.

While the hype around Captain Marvel was huge leading up to its March 7 release, there was some chatter about if the world was indeed ready for a female superhero to lead its own series.

The character is expected to play a key role in Marvel's next film Avengers: Endgame, which is released in the United Kingdom on 25 April. It was also the second most successful for any superhero pic behind Avengers: Infinity War ($640.5 million), according to The Hollywood Reporter. Happily, after the movie's opening weekend, it seems the flick has gone higher, further, and faster at the box office.

Overall, it's the sixth-best worldwide opener of all time, beating out the global debuts other smash hits such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($281 million).

By grossing $153 million in its domestic debut, "Captain Marvel" topped another female-led action franchise, 2012's "The Hunger Games" ($152.5 million), and slid in behind another: 2016's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" ($155 million).

Oh, there will plenty of more chances for Brie to bust out the Captain Marvel tracksuit for more surprise appearances.

Brie Larson stunned Captain Marvel fans by showing up to a number of screenings of the film during its opening weekend. Living on Earth in 1995, she keeps having recurring memories of another life as U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers.

On a larger scale, the commercial success of "Captain Marvel" sets the stage for an increase in female-led superhero movies.

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. DC's "Birds of Prey" and "Wonder Woman 1984" are scheduled to arrive next year.

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