Captain Marvel Blasts Past $1 Billion Worldwide

Just one month after its release, Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel has officially blasted past the coveted $1 billion mark, hauling in $358 million in North America alone and $645 million internationally.

Of course, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is no stranger to billion-dollar blockbusters, already having six other films reach this milestone. However, Captain Marvel is one of the few solo super-flicks to reach this status.

The other members of the MCU's billion-dollar elites are Captain America: Civil War ($1.15 billion), Iron Man 3 ($1.2 billion), Black Panther ($1.35 billion), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.4 billion), The Avengers ($1.5 billion), and Avengers: Infinity War ($2.05 billion). In terms of Disney overall, Carol Danvers' debut film is now the 18th of the studio's movies to pass this milestone.

Just where exactly the movie will rank in terms of the MCU's top-earners (and for superhero movies as a whole) has yet to be fully determined, as the interstellar blockbuster is still in theaters. However, as it stands, Captain Marvel is currently the 11th highest earning superhero movie of all-time, falling right behind 2008's The Dark Knight.

Captain Marvel holds significance as being the MCU's first female-led movie and as of today, it's also the first female-led superhero movie to cross the $1 billion mark at the global box office. In fact, the film is one of the few female-led films of any genre to achieve this feat, ushering in a new era for action movies and joining the ranks of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Frozen and Titanic.

Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Yon-Rogg, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, Algenis Perez Soto as Att-Lass, McKenna Grace as a young Carol Danvers and Annette Bening as the Supreme Intelligence.
