As of Tuesday, the combined domestic and international box office grosses for Captain Marvel — which has been in theatres since early March — have topped a billion dollars. Deadline reports it is the seventh Marvel film to achieve that milestone and is now the number 10 superhero movie of all time.
According to Box Office Mojo, there are over three dozen films that have grossed over a billion dollars worldwide, though only one solely focuses on a female superhero. Deadline further notes that the film, from directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, had “the 6th highest worldwide debut of all time, the 2nd best for a superhero film and the biggest ever for March” with its “$455.7M global opening.”
After all, as star Brie Larson was happy to point out, a billion’s a billion:
Our girl Carol Danvers just joined the One Billion Club! Thank you endlessly for helping us cross this milestone. It has been a pleasure sharing this character with the world. I’ve loved seeing the cosplay, fan art and passionate words about our HERo. Higher Further Faster baby! pic.twitter.com/mOZcUt8L5q
