Marvel studios has officially crossed the $5b mark thanks to massive Thor:Ragnarok opening.

After the $100 million-plus debut of Thor: Ragnarok this weekend, Marvel Studios’ Marvel Cinematic Universe has become the first franchise to hit $5 billion at the domestic box office.

Marvel which is now under Disney has made 17 films and plenty still in various states of post-production, the studio has officially crossed $5 billion at the domestic box office.

Marvel Studios will celebrate ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year, and while we’ve spent nearly a decade with these characters, it often feels as though the studio is only beginning its journey as the universe continue to reach new heights with each release. And with Black PantherAnt-Man and the WaspAvengers: Infinity War, and Captain Marvel still to come? It’s safe to say the best appears yet to come.

Next up for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Black Panther. That film opens on February 16, 2018 and is directed by Ryan Cooler. The film stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, with Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown and John Kani.
