Box Office Mojo and Variety report the superhero flick has made an easy $358 million across North America and $645 million overseas.

Captain Marvel is now the seventh film to crack a billion dollars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It joins The Avengers, Avengers: Infinity, and Black Panther (to name a few). All three hours and two minutes of Avengers: Endgame will undoubtedly do the same in a month’s time. On a wider scale, this is Disney‘s 18th movie to pull in over a billion bucks.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and starring Brie Larson, Captain Marvel is the MCU’s first blockbuster to focus on a female superhero. The film follows Carol Danvers (Larson) as she’s caught smack bang in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.

On Instagram, Larson celebrated the ginormous achievement.

“Our girl Carol Danvers just joined the One Billion Club! Thank you endlessly to everyone for helping us cross this milestone. It has been an absolute pleasure sharing this character with the world. I’ve loved seeing the cosplay, fan art and passionate words about our HERo. Cheers to you all! Higher, Further, Faster baby!

If you’re a fan of Larson, her directorial debut Unicorn Store hits Netflix on April 5. 

In Unicorn Store, whimsical painter Kit (Larson) takes a dry office job after being kicked out of art school. Just when she thinks she’s doomed for the rest of her life, Kit receives an invitation from a mysterious salesman (Samuel L. Jackson) who promises to fulfil her childhood dreams.

The indie comedy, which also stars Joan Cusack, made its debut back in 2017 at the Toronto International Film Festival.
