The latest Marvel film has continued to break records, bringing in plenty of revenue for theaters and IMAX. And, it looks like the film has reached yet another huge milestone!

Variety has reported that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has earned the spot as the highest-grossing film of 2021, as well as the domestic box office during the pandemic. Shang-Chi has also passed Black Widow‘s earnings with a total gross of $186.7 million compared to the $183.5 million gross of the Scarlett Johansson led film.

Shang-Chi was released in theaters exclusively before it debuts on Disney+ for free in November, showing that theatrical releases could be on the uphill climb. Previously, Black Widow had a dual release in theaters and on the streaming service platform, which has caused the Scarlett Johansson lawsuit.

During this upcoming weekend, Shang-Chi is slated to earn around $12 million to $14 million to its revenue after acquiring another $3.59 million on Friday. This would boost Shang-Chi‘s earnings to around $200 million, comparable to other Marvel films like Thor: The Dark World and Ant-Man and the Wasp.
