Captain Marvel becomes the latest Marvel film to bring in $1 billion for Disney

It’s the seventh movie based on Marvel Comics’ intellectual property to hit that milestone, indicating that Disney may be the house that Mickey Mouse built, Marvel’s comic empire is adding a few more stories.

Captain Marvel’s success also underscores the notion that superheroines can perform just as well at the box office as their male counterparts.

It’s also a blow to the online trolls who sought to derail the movie early on with a concerted effort to post negative reviews and drive down audience ratings for the film upon its release.

Brie Larson’s superhero turn netted $358 million in North America, so far, and another $645 million in overseas ticket sales. The movie joins Marvel titles “Avengers: Infinity War”, “The Avengers”, “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, “Black Panther”, “Captain America: Civil War”, and “Iron Man 3” in the billion dollar movie club.

It’s the 18th Disney movie to gross over $1 billion, and, all-told, the 21 Marvel films have brought in $18.5 billion at the box office so far, according to Variety.
