Thor: Ragnarok has passed the half a billion spot as it goes into its second weekend at the domestic box office.

Since the entrance of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in 2008, the studio backing the films has seen some record earnings. All told, the MCU has passed $5 billion domestically and $13 billion internationally.

Temporarily, only 3 of its 17 films (Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Incredible Hulk) have failed to break $500 million at the global box office.

The third Thor film, however, is already sweeping its forerunner out of the water in that respect.

The movie is now expected to attain the $600 million global gross marker, before its second weekend stateside draws to a close.

With $147.9 Million domestically and $354.4 Million at global markets, Ragnarok currently ranks 16th at home and 14th in total across the world for the MCU.

Ragnarok has already make more around the world than Kenneth Branagh’s Thor did back in 2011 ($449.3 million) and will soon exceed the total global hall for Alan Taylor’s sequel Thor: The Dark World ($644.6 million), which hit theaters in 2013.

Heading into the weekend, Thor: Ragnarok will be up against some rivalry in the forms of Murder on the Orient Express and Daddy’s Home 2.

The three films – a superhero blockbuster, a star-studded literary adaptation, and a broad comedy sequel – do not totally overlap with one another in terms of their demographic appeal, but Ragnarok isn’t expected to have any problem pulling in large number of moviegoers this weekend.

By contrast, its competitors are estimated to earn some $20 Million each this weekend, versus Ragnarok‘s predicted $60 Million second weekend at home.

With one of the best Rotten Tomatoes ratings for a superhero film ever and 79% of audiences highly endorsing the film, Thor: Ragnarok may prove to be one of Marvel’s most successful solo films yet.

It also means that Taika Waititi’s dream of Thor 4 might be actualize.
