‘Captain Marvel’ crosses $1 billion mark and star Brie Larson celebrates

Entertainment

Joining the likes of “Black Panther” and the last “Avengers” film, “Captain Marvel” just crossed the $1 billion-mark and the film’s star Brie Larson couldn’t be happier.

“Our girl Carol Danvers just joined the One Billion Club!” Larson tweeted on Wednesday. “Thank you endlessly for helping us cross this milestone.”

She continued, “It has been a pleasure sharing this character with the world. I’ve loved seeing the cosplay, fan art and passionate words about our HERo. Higher Further Faster baby!”

The milestone is quite a feat considering “Captain Marvel” just came out less than a month ago on March 8.

Marvel also shared the news, writing, “In celebration of Marvel Studios’ #CaptainMarvel soaring past the $1 billion mark at the global box office, here’s your look at this new poster by artist @TracieChing. #HigherFurtherFaster.”

But the Captain is not even close to finished. She’ll appear later this month in “Avengers: Endgame,” which is also setting box office milestones of it’s own.

Tickets went on sale yesterday and Fandango is already reporting that “Endgame” broke its pre-sale records, topping the previous holder, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Don’t think for one second the Captain didn’t have a hand in the feeding frenzy to gobble up tickets for this upcoming epic on April 26.

Way to go Carol. Now go kick some Thanos butt.
