Now Playing: Captain Marvel Eyeing Massive Opening That Could Be On Par With Wonder Woman - GameSpot Universe News Update

Marvel's next big superhero film, Captain Marvel, hits theatres in March, and it's expected to make a lot of money. Variety reports that early tracking estimates peg the movie at bringing in around $100 million for its opening in the US and Canada. If word of mouth stays strong and grows more positive still, the opening-weekend figure could balloon to $120 million or more, the report said.

If Captain Marvel makes around $100 million for its opening, that would put it in line with another major comic book movie featuring a female hero for the first time: Wonder Woman. That film made $103 million in the domestic market for its opening weekend. It went on to bank around $412 million during its domestic run and $821 million worldwide.

Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers AKA Captain Marvel. The film also stars Jude Law, Samuel L. Jakcosn, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, and Ben Mendelsohn. There's also Goose the cat

Larson will play Captain Marvel again in April's Avengers: Endgame. She could play a big role in the film, as the end-credits sequence of Avengers: Infinity War saw Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury reached out to Captain Marvel to save the world. Captain Marvel features our MCU introduction to the Skrulls.

In other news, here's a video of Larson pushing a 5,000-pound truck to train for Captain Marvel. You can watch the latest TV trailer for Captain Marvel in the video embed above.
