The Marvel Studios film was produced primarily in Wilmington, and is the largest film production in state history, with a reported budget of $200 million.
The Hollywood Reporter gave the movie a favorable review, praising both the "refreshed" and "spirited" action sequences and the film's "irreverent and quicksilver humor".
The trade magazine predicts the movie "will be the (early) summer's first massive hit".
