On the same day, Gadot, who had huge success in 2017 with DC’s Wonder Woman, posted on her Instagram story a piece of art from illustrator “Maxy Artwork” showing Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman together, with the added caption, “I’m so happy for you sister, congrats!” Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins also shared fan art in support of Captain Marvel.

Fans shared both messages across social media, celebrating the support between the actresses.
One tweeted: “This comment Anne Hathaway left on Brie Larson’s Instagram is very important to me.”
“anne hathaway telling brie larson aka captain marvel to defeat thanos is the best thing i’ve ever seen,” said another.
Captain Marvel‘s £117 million domestic and £349 million global opening weekend means it overtakes Wonder Woman and Beauty and The Beast to become the biggest opening for a female-fronted film of all time.
Prior to release, Captain Marvel became the target of online trolling and hate from self-described comic book and Marvel Cinematic Universe fans. Trolls spammed Rotten Tomatoes with negative reviews, leading to the website changing its rating policy and no longer allowing review prior to a film’s release.
