    Marvel Studios’ epic franchise “Avengers: Endgame” has recorded the biggest global opening in film history, having taken in $1.2 billion at the box office worldwide.

    USA Today’s TV Critic Kelly Lawler has lamented too little screen time was devoted to Captain Marvel, played by Brie Larson, in the superhero movie, “Avengers: Endgame”.

    In her article, the self-confessed binge-watcher emphasised that Captain Marvel, a.k.a. Carol Danvers, is “shockingly absent” from most of the movie, and when this happens, she’s awkwardly inserted into scenes and underutilised as a character and hero”.

    Lawler points out that Larson appeared four times in the film, and basically without introduction, so, if someone didn’t watch her solo movie, they wouldn’t even know her name until the 45th minute of “Endgame”.

    “Carol is Marvel Studios' first female hero to headline her own film solo. As the original Avengers start to close the books on their Marvel careers (be they dead, stuck in the past or hanging out in space), newer characters like Carol are supposed to represent the future of the mega-billion-dollar franchise. But her role in the film didn't make that future seem very bright”, the critic added.

    Apparently, many social media users agree with Lawler: Captain Marvel should have gotten a fair share of screen time:

    Some, however, think that her appearance was, in fact, a waste of time:

    “Avengers: Endgame”, which is the fourth movie about the Avengers team, focuses on the life-and-death battle between a team of superheroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and The Hulk, and super villain Thanos.

    The film has already recorded the biggest global opening in film history, having amassed $1.2 billion at the box office worldwide, Walt Disney Co. revealed on Sunday.
