Marvel Studios is known for being very economical with the budgets on their solo movies. That’s one of the reasons why the deal with Sony was made, as Spider-Man: Homecoming cost a lot less to make than The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and ended up making more money as well. And now we may know how much Captain Marvel cost to make.
A filing on the Louisiana Office of Entertainment Industry Development website reveals that the budget of the Marvel production “Open World” (the codename for Captain Marvel) was $152 million. The production spent eight days filming in Baton Rouge, and comic fans will recognize that as where Maria (and Monica) Rambeau are from.
So $152 million isn’t a huge budget compared to some of those superhero movies that clock in at over $200 million, but again it’s not too outside the average of a solo Marvel Studios movie.
