After a stellar opening weekend, the latest entry in the MCU, "Captain Marvel," shows no signs of slowing down, with the superhero flick soaring past a huge box office milestone.
As of Tuesday, the film -- which stars Brie Larson as the titular heroine, a.k.a. Carol Danvers -- is on pace to surpass the $500 million mark worldwide. It currently sits just shy of $490 million as of press time, raking in $164.3 million at the domestic box office in its first four days of release, and another $325.6 million since opening in international markets on March 6.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, those numbers easily put the film on pace to crack $1 billion at the global box office, a feat not even the high-flying "Wonder Woman" ($821.8 million total worldwide gross) could achieve. "Captain Marvel" also overtook that rival DC flick in the female-fronted superhero film opening weekend tallies, earning a whopping $153 million during its first frame, versus a then-record $103 million for the Gal Gadot flick back in 2017.
In terms of all-time records, "Captain Marvel" currently sits at number six on the all-time domestic opening weekend charts, and number five on the foreign opening weekend charts. Guess all that trolling was in vain.
