Marvel Studios has done it again. Despite what some internet trolls may have thought Captain Marvel has joined the billion-dollar club.
The 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has earned $1.003 billion at the worldwide box office and has shown no signs of slowing down. Domestically, the film hauled in $358 million, but the bulk of its haul came from international ticket sales. Outside the U.S., it earned $645 million. Action-packed films like Captain Marvel have become increasingly popular in foreign countries, particularly in China, and have boosted their box office tremendously.
With Disney’s bi-annual D23 Expo, and San Diego Comic-Con right around the corner, it’s very possible a sequel could be officially announced. Now, whether or not it’s a prequel again or takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Captain Marvel stars Academy Award® winner Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou (Korath), Lee Pace (Ronan), Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan (Minn-Erva), Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Kenneth Mitchell (Joseph Danvers), with Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson), and Jude Law (Marv-Vell).
