Marvel Studios’ ‘Captain Marvel‘, which hit theatres worldwide last week, emerged as the biggest blockbusters ever led by a woman. The twenty-first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) ‘Captain Marvel’ which released on International Women’s Day, is the Marvel Studios’ first female-led superhero film.

According to Studio estimates, the film opened to $153 million domestically and $455 million globally. This is not the only record it set up, it created history by setting a new worldwide mark for a film directed or co-directed by a woman. The film was directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who previously made the indies “Half Nelson” and “Mississippi Grind.”

“She definitely pushed us higher, further, faster,” said Disney distribution chief Cathleen Taff.

“What they believe is that the more you diversify perspective and experience in front of and behind the camera, the better the movies and the stories are,” said Taff. “You see that in their track record. I think you see that in their box office. And I think you see that in the broadening of their fan base.”

The film is the sixth largest worldwide debut ever and the second one with a female lead. The only movie with a female lead that has started better globally was ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, it grossed 529 million dollars when it debuted in 2015.

The film is produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The movie stars Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law and it is set in 1995.

The film features Carol Danvers who is a Marvel Comic character. Just like her character in the comic books, she is a superhero, who is gifted with extraordinary superpowers.
