Captain Marvel isn't just making a killing in our hearts--she's actually set a completely new box office record.


Brie Larson, Carol Danvers, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe just made history by grossing over $1 billion--a record held in the superhero genre solely by male superhero movies.

Brie Larson celebrated earlier this weekend with an Instagram post.


This even beat out DC's Wonder Woman, which earned $100 million in its opening weekend.

Captain Marvel earned $153 million. The movie is now Marvel's eighth most successful movie.







Carol Danvers' next appearance is scheduled in Avengers: Endgame at the end of the month, but talk of a Captain Marvel sequel is under way now that the film has crossed this impressive threshold.








Black Panther tops the list of highest grossing Marvel films.

Marvel also has eleven films on its "upcoming" roster, nine of which are as of yet untitled.

Aside from Avengers: Endgame, the other named upcoming film is Spider-Man: Far From Home.






Let's hope we see more of Carol Danvers across the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Captain Marvel is not Larson's first foray into the world of superheroes. Back in 2010 she played Envy Adams in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World which is available here.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
