Captain Marvel has crossed the $800 million mark at the worldwide box office, with over $519.3 million earned overseas.

Less than three weeks into its wide theatrical release, the film has surpassed the lifetime earnings of previous Marvel Cinematic Universe film Ant-Man and the Wasp, which earned $622.7 million, and Fox's Deadpool 2, which earned $785 million.

Captain Marvel is expected to lose the top spot at the domestic box office to Jordan Peele's latest horror movie Us, which opens this coming weekend. However, given the success of the MCU film overseas, it is unknown if Captain Marvel will retain the top international box office spot for the third weekend in a row.

With nearly $300 million at the domestic box office and counting, it now simply becomes a question of when Captain Marvel will become the latest solo superhero film to reach the $1 billion mark.
