Following the very successful and lucrative Avengers Infinity War, Captain Marvel has joined Marvel‘s billion-dollar club, with the film earning over a $1 billion USD worldwide. Brie Larson and Marvel Studios crossed the milestone earlier this week with $358.1 million USD earned domestically and $644.5 million accumulated internationally.
Captain Marvel debuted with a $455.7 million USD global opening, making it the 6th greatest worldwide debut of all time, coming in as the second best opening for a superhero film. This is the seventh Marvel Studios film to cross the billion-dollar threshold, behind all three Avengers movies, Black Panther, Iron Man 3, and Captain America: Civil War. The standard Marvel movie is poised to make over $880 million USD on average.
In other MCU news, Marvel’s first gay superhero may be Hercules in The Eternals.
