If there's one thing that the DCEU has over the MCU, it's the highly-anticipated Wonder Woman film that will come out this year. Gil Gadot's performance of the Amazon Princess might be a record-breaker in the way that superwomen can finally carry a film on their own.

Marvel does have Captain Marvel waiting by the wings. When it comes to power levels, she can take on DC's Superman, and certainly Wonder Woman. But the character itself does not have the name recall of DC's First Lady, and maybe that's why she's getting an introduction in Avengers: Infinity War.

Brie Larson, who plays Carol Danvers, is well aware of fan expectation, and the "great responsibility" she is carrying on her shoulders. She shares with Total Film:

"I have so many conversations with fans about the universe and this character in particular. I'm grateful for social media for that, actually—it's such a great way to connect with people, to understand what it is they love about this character, what it is they hope to see.
"Where this character's at in the comic books is such an inspiring space, right now. I'm so grateful to be part of it."

A Black Widow movie is far from happening, and so all eyes are on Captain Marvel to take the lead as far as female superheroes are concerned. With still a year on our calendar before Avengers: Infinity War opens in cinemas, the clip below explains how Captain Marvel is the most powerful superhero in Marvel's land.

Who knows? Maybe she'll be the one who'll take Thanos down.
