In the highest, fastest, furthest Empire Podcast spoiler special to date, we do a deep dive into the 21st movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Captain Marvel.

Larson noted last month how movies that are landmarks for representation, like "Captain Marvel", often come with the weight of huge expectations, with a lot riding on their successes or failures.

How much did Captain Marvel make at the Box Office? Domestically, it surpasses the opening weekends of the first two Iron Man films, The Incredible Hulk, the first two Captain America films, all three Thor films, Doctor Strange, both Ant-Man films, both Guardians of the Galaxy films, as well as all Spider-Man films, Venom, Suicide Squad, Man of Steel, Justice League, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, both Deadpool films and all X-Men films.

The global figure puts Captain Marvel in sixth place in terms of all-time worldwide box office weekends, with Avengers: Infinity War the only Marvel film to experience a more lucrative debut.

The domestic haul of $153 million represents the third-biggest debut for a movie in March in the history of film, only behind Beauty and the Beast ($174.7 million) and Batman v. Superman ($166 million).

Malaysia: Kim Jong Nam murder suspect freed by court
Malaysian officials have never officially accused North Korea and have made it clear they don't want the trial politicized. Huong was supposed to testify for the first time Monday, but her trial was postponed following the surprise decision.

After years of waiting, Captain Marvel finally crashed into theatres last week.

A Madea Family Funeral, writer/director/star Tyler Perry's swan song as the title character, dropped 55% in its second weekend with $12 million for a $45.8 million domestic total.

As with many female-led blockbusters in recent years, sexist trolls tried to torpedo "Captain Marvel" even before its release, which led review-aggregating site Rotten Tomatoes to change its policy, restricting comments and reviews until a movie is released. I want to go out of my way to connect the dots.

Brie Larson said: "I don't know how it's any different". "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!' I feel like the more we talk about it, the more we perpetuate the myth that it's an impossible task". Now we're just doing what's natural. Captain Marvel is in theaters now.
