Captain Marvel came out last month, marking the debut of the first female-led solo movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In case, the new box office reports suggest anything, its that the film is going to cross a huge milestone.
Captain Marvel Has Made $990 Million At Box Office
In its fourth weekend, Captain Marvel earned around $20.4 million at the box office. This places the movie’s overall worldwide run at $990.6 million. It’s not been a month since the film released, which means that the film is on the brink of touching the $1 billion mark at the box office.
If this happens, it will make Captain Marvel to be the seventh film to enter the billion-dollar club after Iron Man 3, Avengers, Civil War, Age of Ultron, Infinity War and Black Panther. While we can’t predict its final box office total, the fact that it will be crossing one billion is worth a celebration.
Brie Larson On Playing Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel marked the onscreen debut of Carol Danvers, played by Academy Award winner Brie Larson, as a pilot who gets caught amid a Kree-Skrull war.
“I think who she is is just so dynamic and unique, because she is really strong and steadfast and knows who she is, but she also is emotional and feels terrible when she makes a mistake and is deeply flawed, and says the wrong thing.” Larson revealed in a previous interview. “And those were really the things that I was excited about because just playing a superhero that was some like idealized version of perfection just didn’t feel right to me. I like the fact that she doesn’t always do the right thing, and when she doesn’t do the right thing she goes out of her way to make sure that she can fix the mistake.”

Captain Marvel To Lead MCU In Phase 4
Now that Captain Marvel has made its way into the MCU, it’s safe to assume that she will be a prominent role in phase 4 of MCU.
“When we found out that Brie Larson might be interested in joining our world, we had a number of meetings.” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige explained in a recent Captain Marvel special. “She was a huge fan of the character in the comics. One of the highlights of my career at Marvel was introducing her at Comic-Con and having her come out on stage and stand there with literally almost everybody else from our movies. There she was at the forefront, and it was a great foreshadowing – not just for how audiences are going to embrace Brie as this character, but also for how Captain Marvel is about to take the lead and be at the forefront of the entire Cinematic Universe.”
