Captain Marvel becomes world’s number one film

Studio’s first female super hero led film has made $760 million globally.

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel continues to dominate at the box office, having notched up $760 million globally.

In the UK and Ireland, it has taken £23.65 million after two weeks on release.

In addition, the movie has already taken more than DC’s Wonder Woman and has overtaken a number of films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe including both the first and second instalments of the Iron Man, Thor and Captain America films.

The film stars Academy Award winning Brie Larson as Marvel Studios’ first female lead super hero and last week opened as the biggest ever origin film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
