While everyone’s talking about Avengers: Endgame, our attention has turned to Captain Marvel. The highly anticipated film has earned its fair share of critics from every turn. Fortunately for Marvel Studios, the cash pouring in from this movie is extremely high.

A Marvel At The Box Office

So far, Captain Marvel has earned well over $575 million worldwide. Its opening weekend total of $456.7 million gives it the second biggest superhero film opening ever. Avengers: Infinity War still holds the title with $640.5 million.

Captain Marvel also takes the title of highest opening weekend for a female-led film. The title originally went to Beauty and the Beast, which earned $357 million. In the United States, Captain Marvel has the third biggest March opening behind Batman v. Superman and Beauty and the Beast. The film also currently holds the title of the biggest opening weekend of 2019.

Let’s Get Physical

For Brie Larson, working on Captain Marvel was a completely different experience. One major aspect involved getting in shape for the role.

“I was not athletic in any way, which is why I took nine months to learn how to be athletic and moonlight as an athlete. It was just a lot, it was an hour and a half every day. Just going really hard cardio and weightlifting and then three months before (filming) we added in fight training as well,” she told Screen Rant.

Cashing It In

Captain Marvel costs Disney around $300 million to produce and promote. In order for it to break even, the film needs to earn $750 million worldwide. It’s safe to say it won’t be a struggle to land that milestone. While no official sequel has been revealed, it won’t be surprising if it gets revealed in the near future.

Captain Marvel will also take part in Avengers: Endgame, which drops on April 26, 2019.
