HOLLYWOOD- Actress Brie Larson who featured as Captain Marvel in the eponymous Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie is amused that some people are not able to comprehend that the film crossed $1 billion at the global box office.

Captain Marvel is the first MCU movie to be fronted by a woman.

During an interview at the Women in the World conference in New York City, 29-year-old Larson said, “This weird idea that women maybe can't open movies or are not important to storytelling or the female story is not high art, it's bogus. I don't want to for a second buy into it.

"I don't know why that was so hard to comprehend in the first place. It's just like we're human, whatever. If people needed this to be another reminder this decade (that minority groups can open movies and make a billion dollars) then great, I'm here, I did it," she added.

Larson will reprise her role of Captain Marvel in Avengers: Endgame scheduled for an April 26 release.
