The pic’s domestic total stands at $266 million; the foreign tally is $494 million.

 

The first female-led superhero pic from Marvel Studios and Disney — starring Brie Larson — is now assured of ultimately earning $1 billion. And it’s already passed up a slew of superhero pics, including Suicide Squad ($747 million), Captain America: Winter Soldier ($714 million), Doctor Strange ($678 million), Man of Steel ($668 million), Justice League ($658 million), Thor: The Dark World ($645 million), Iron Man 2 ($624 million) and Ant-Man and The Wasp ($623 million), not adjusted for inflation.

 

Overseas, Captain America has also zoomed past Wonder Woman, which finished its run with a foreign tally of $409 million (Wonder Woman‘s global total was $821.8 million).

 

In North America, where it declined less than 55 percent, Captain Marvel scored one of the top 20 second weekends of all time as more females turned out.
