What a Marvel
Captain Marvel is absolutely killing it at the Box Office since it’s worldwide release last week. As the studio’s first female-lead comic-book movie, it debuted with a MASSIVE $455 million globally, and has now soared past the $500 million mark. That makes it the SIXTH best start for a movie of ALL TIME. Not bad, not bad at all.
While we’re talking Marvel, cast your eyes on the brand new trailer for Avengers: Endgame..
