The HERo arrived and she absolutely dominated the box office. Captain Marvel can now hang her hat with the others in the billion dollar club as the Marvel film has officially surpassed the highly coveted $1 billion worldwide box office number. Captain Marvel, which is Marvel’s first female-led superhero film managed to earn $358 million in the United States and an impressive $645 million overseas, according to Variety. Larson celebrated with a post on social media.

It’s just another win for Marvel who has quite the array of films there to greet Captain Marvel, including Iron Man 3, The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. Seeing that the upcoming Avengers: Endgame managed to break the record for most first-day presales in six hours, we think it’s a fair share that film is well on it’s way to joining the Marvel ranks as well.
Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as she becomes one of the most powerful superheroes after finding herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls. It features a supporting cast of Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Annette Bening, Ben Mendelsohn, Lee Pace, and Lashana Lynch. To see our full review of the film head here!

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
