New York (The Verge) — Captain Marvel is the latest Marvel movie to cross the billion-dollar mark theverge.com/2019/4/3/18294….
Marvel’s latest superhero flick, Captain Marvel, just crossed a big milestone: it’s earned more than $1 billion at the global box office, and joins films like Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War.
After being teased in last year’s Infinity War, fans were eagerly anticipating the film and its titular character to arrive in a standalone spot, given Captain Marvel’s expected role in the forthcoming Avengers: Endgame. The milestone comes as the buildup to Endgame has begun. Marvel released a new teaser yesterday in conjunction with advance tickets going on sale, which broke the record set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015. The question isn’t will Endgame hit the billion-dollar mark, but how fast? — Andrew Liptak/@verge
