According to a report by Forbes, Brie Larson's debut as Marvel's strongest and most powerful Avenger reached $1 billion at the box office on Monday, putting the film in the $1 billion dollar club along with other Disney and Marvel entries.
Captain Marvel is Marvel Studio's 7th addition to the top 10 superhero films of all time. The film is also the Mickey Mouse House's 21st addition to the $1 billion dollar club.
