Actor Brie Larson starred as Captain Marvel in the 2019 namesake movie and is all set to return in its sequel, The Marvels, set to release in 2023, alongside Teyonah Parris and Iman Vellani. Captain Marvel successfully found its place in the billion-dollar club, gaining over $1.1 billion at the box office worldwide. Even though the movie received mixed reviews from the fans and critics, it’s safe to say that Captain Marvel was a hit in terms of box office revenue.

One can’t help but wonder how much would Brie Larson have earned from her very first superhero movie, especially since Captain Marvel was MCU’s first female-led film and had a budget of $150 million.

The Oscar and Emmy awards winner recently paid a visit to the studios of ABC’s late-night talk show where she talked about Captain Marvel becoming a billion-dollar film. She joked about how the movie “did okay.” The host Jimmy Kimmel and Brie Larson exchanged a short and humorous banter, with Jimmy Kimmel asking her if she got half of the billion dollars earned by the movie. Brie Larson went along with him and replied that she was indeed a “secret billionaire.”

“100% of the proceeds go to me.Yes! The perks! I am a secret billionaire.”

Since Captain Marvel broke quite a few records at the box office, how much did she actually make by starring as Carol Danvers, jokes aside?


Brie Larson’s Actual Earnings For Captain Marvel

Brie Larson reportedly made an earning of $5 million for Captain Marvel, one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. This paycheck is a significant improvement for a superhero’s first standalone film, as Robert Downey Jr. earned $500,000 for his first Iron Man film and Chadwick Boseman made $2 million for Black Panther.

Given the fact that the Room actor tremendously increased her fitness game for Captain Marvel, the $5 million paycheck seems to be a proper fit. She stated to have transformed her body from not being able to climb a hill without being breathless to pushing jeeps.

Being able to hip thrust 400 Lbs, deadlift 200 Lbs, push my trainer’s Jeep, I mean, it’s an experience to realise what’s inside of you is well beyond what you knew was possible.”

With The Marvels releasing in 2023, it is reported that Brie Larson might be walking away with a much-increased paycheck with a deal worth $15 million on the minimum side. Her contract also has her a guaranteed additional increase based on how well the movie does. This just might make her the highest-paid female actor in the MCU.
