Marvel Studios’s Captain Marvel is gearing up to be one of 2019’s biggest films, and box office projections place its earnings pretty high–well within the $140M range–when it releases in March. Not bad at all for the MCU’s first film with a female lead.

According to BoxOffice Pro, the Brie Larson-starring superhero flick is poised to make between $140M and $180M in its opening weekend. The website counts several major factors in favor of the film’s success at the box office, including the fact that audiences have long been waiting for an MCU film with a lead female protagonist, as well as how the teasing of Carol Danvers at the end of Avengers: Infinity War will make this film a “must-see release” for the connective tissue with the forthcoming Avengers: Endgame. This in turn would pave the way for even higher numbers for the latter film’s release in April. In the meantime, we’ll keep you posted on Captain Marvel‘s box office numbers before and after it hits theaters.

Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.
