While the world has been comparing the two films, Gal Gadot who plays Wonder Woman has praised Brie Larson's performance.
This is what sisterhood stands for. As Marvel released its first female superhero film 'Captain Marvel' on 8th March, the film was instantly compared to DC's 'Wonder Woman' which also had a female superhero. But while the world has been comparing the two films, Gal Gadot who plays Wonder Woman has praised Brie Larson's performance.
Over the weekend 'Captain Marvel' made the biggest worldwide box office debut for a female-led film, surpassing 2017`s Gal Gadot`s 'Wonder Woman'.
While the Marvel film managed to break the record of DC’s ‘Wonder Woman’ and it seems like for the ladies, this is much more than the competition. It is about celebrating women empowerment. Taking to her Instagram story, Gadot posted an animated image of herself standing alongside Brie Larson character, arm in arm, and wrote, “I`m so happy for you sister! Congrats.”

Shortly after the film was released on March 8, it managed to come up as the second largest opening for a comic book movie behind 2018`s `Avengers: Infinity War`.
