Marvel Studios has begun principal photography in Los Angeles, California, on its newest film, “Captain Marvel.” The production is shooting in and around the greater Los Angeles area, which will also serve as the production base for the film. The production will also shoot on location in Fresno, California, as well as locations in Louisiana, including Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, the story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.  Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther crossed the $1 billion mark at the global box office on March 10, its 26th day of release. With $561.8 million domestically and $518.2 million internationally through March 11 for a combined $1.08 billion, the film is now the seventh highest-grossing film of all time in the U.S. and ranks at No. 21 globally, just a month into its release.

Black Panther is the 16th release from The Walt Disney Studios to reach the $1 billion milestone and the fifth to do so in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, joining The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Civil War.

The film continues to break records domestically and now stands as the No. 2 Super-Hero release of all time behind only The Avengers. Having kicked off its run over President’s Day weekend with $202 million in its first three days and $242.1 million over its first four, Black Panther is also the No. 1 February debut and February release of all time. It amassed the highest Monday of all time ($40.1 million on February 19), and the second-highest Sunday of all time ($60 million on February 18) in its opening week.

Boasting a rare A+ CinemaScore from audiences and an exceptional 97-percent Certified Fresh aggregate critics score on RottenTomatoes, the film’s record-setting opening weekend was followed by the No. 2 second weekend of all time, earning $111.6 million and becoming one of only four films to surpass the $100 million mark in its second weekend. The film’s phenomenal momentum also drove Black Panther to the highest non-holiday third weekend ever, with $66.3 million domestic. It has held the No. 1 spot at the box office for four consecutive weekends.

Black Panther crossed the $500 million mark internationally this weekend, bolstered by an impressive estimated $66.5 million debut in its final market, China, where it opened March 9.
