“Captain Marvel” joined an exclusive club on Wednesday. The latest Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbuster officially reached $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

“Captain Marvel” is the first movie of 2019 to do so, but five movies released in 2018 hit that box-office milestone, helping to propel the worldwide box office to a record year.
