In the face of all of the annoying trolling, Captain Marvel stood atop the box office in its opening weekend.

Per Box Office Mojo, the Brie Larson-led film grossed $153M domestically and a whopping $455M worldwide making Captain Marvel the third-highest March opening of all-time and the fifth largest film opening in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU.)

The is the first film in the MCU to star a female superhero, and compared to the 2017 DC hit Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel managed to outgross by over $50M. (Wonder Woman grossed $100.5M in its opening weekend.)  

The next test for Captain Marvel will come in the following week’s box office numbers and how much of a drop in gross there will be, but with all of the attention Goose the Cat has been receiving, don’t be surprised if the second-week drop isn’t as much as expected.

If there’s one thing most people can rally behind besides a comic book movie, it’s a comic book movie that also features a scene-stealing cat.
