Captain Marvel Soars Past Another Major Box Office Milestone

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel continues to rise higher, further and faster at the box office on its way to $1 billion.

According to Exhibitor Relations Co. on Twitter, the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe managed to earn an estimated $87 million dollars worldwide this weekend, pushing its overall total to $910 million. This means the movie has officially earned more than Thor: Ragnarok ($853 million), Venom, ($855 million), Spider-Man: Homecoming ($880 million) and Spider-Man 3 ($890 million). And those are just the films based on Marvel characters that it has surpassed.

Captain Marvel already surpassed Wonder Woman earlier in the week, but this total also puts it past Batman v Superman ($872.7 million). This means that Captain Marvel is now the 11th highest-grossing superhero movie ever and has officially earned more than every DC film but Aquaman ($1.146 billion), The Dark Knight Rises ($1.084 billion) and The Dark Knight ($1.004 billion).
