Which Marvel Film Has Made the Most Money? Here's the Whole List

Marvel Comics is one of the biggest production companies in the film industry at the moment, and with its new release of Black Panther, it is only going to continue to make more money - and rightfully so. Black Panther is already making history at the Us box office, ranking in $242 million domestically over the four-day weekend. That total puts it in second place for the highest four-day opening of all time, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which took in $288 million. When you look at worldwide numbers, Black Panther is even more impressive. The movie has already earned $426.6 million across the globe! That gigantic number got wondering just how much money all of the Marvel films have made over the years. There are so many films to choose from, and a lot of them have been popular, but when all is said and done, how much money have they actually earned?

Marvel Studios release drives monster global session.

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther roared into life over the weekend, grossing an estimated $361m worldwide through Disney as it combined with two Chinese titans for a six-day extended global weekend that generated more than $1bn.

Black Panther, the latest release from the Marvel Studios hit factory, generated $169m from international markets (with China, Russia and Japan yet to open) and $218m from North America.

In the early leader South Korea, the superhero tentpole has raced to $25.3m and ranks as the fifth highest debut by a Hollywood film and has already outstripped the entire runs of Guardians Of The Galaxy and Ant-Man.

In the UK Black Panther grossed $24.8m in its first six days for the highest February opening weekend of all

Does Black Panther Tease Marvel’s Next Captain America?

Since his McU debut in Captain America: The First Avenger, Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes has grown into a bona fide fan-favorite, particularly after his villainous turn in the really rather excellent Winter Soldier. And while Marvel comic book readers believe it’s only a matter of time before Barnes assumes the Captain America title (perhaps in Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers 4?), we still have no confirmation on if that’ll indeed happen

That being said, the studio has seemingly been dropping hints of Bucky’s transition for a while now and the latest one might just have been snuck into Black Panther. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll know that in the post-credits scene, we’re taken to a village in Wakanda, which seems to be off the beaten path and away from the main city. As the camera focuses on a hut, we hear a group

The Avengers Shatters All Expectations: Journey to Infinity War Part 6

Our journey to Infinity War continues by looking back at Marvel's The Avengers, which is perhaps the most important superhero movie in the history of the genre. And quite possibly the greatest, if you're like me and like to think of The Dark Knight as an action/thriller that happens to have a guy in a costume in it some of the time. In any case, so far, we've looked at all of Marvel's individual Phase 1 movies that got us to this point. Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger were leading us here. Everyone knew fairly quickly that they were taking us to an Avengers movie, but nothing like this had ever been done before. Nobody really knew if this could work. It not only works, it's still the gold standard for team-up movies and hasn't lost a step nearly

The Marvel Olympics: ‘Black Panther’ wins gold as the most critically acclaimed McU movie by far – see how all 18 compare

The Marvel Olympics: ‘Black Panther’ wins gold as the most critically acclaimed McU movie by far – see how all 18 compare
Black Panther” opened on Friday, February 16, as the 18th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the interconnected superhero franchise began with “Iron Man” 10 years ago in 2008 — that averages out to 1.8 Marvel blockbusters every single year. Critics should be sick of it by now, shouldn’t they? Perhaps they are, which makes it even more impressive that this 18th entry in the McU canon has scored 87 on MetaCritic and 98% freshness on Rotten Tomatoes. That makes it the most acclaimed Marvel movie yet. So if Marvel were the Olympics — and goodness knows they have enough heroes to populate an Olympic team — it just captured the gold.

Black Panther” is co-written and directed by Ryan Coogler, who seems to be making a habit of resuscitating long-running franchises. In 2015 he brought Sylvester Stallone‘s Rocky Balboa back to the Oscars with his film “Creed.” This film follows the title character (Chadwick Boseman), a

When, Exactly, Does Black Panther Take Place in the McU Timeline?

Warning: The following article contains spoilers for Marvel StudiosBlack Panther, in theaters now.

While it would may have made some sense for Marvel Studios to have the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe take place in the chronological release order of its films, it’s just not the case. Ever since Captain America: The First Avenger was released in 2011, there has been a timeline emerging that’s not so linear, which makes it easier for the studio to have films set in different times should it so wish.

Avengers’ Sebastian Stan is Down to Play DC’s Riddler

Sebastian Stan is interested in playing Batman villain The Riddler. Stan has been a part of the McU since almost the beginning, first appearing as Steve Roger’s friend Bucky Barnes in Captain America: The First Avenger and returning in both Captain America sequels. In fact, he’s been the catalyst for many of Cap’s biggest adventures, especially as the Winter Soldier. Meanwhile, Stan has gotten to play one of the most interesting and complex arcs in Marvel’s movies, which he’s said that he enjoys greatly.

Captain America Becomes The First Avenger: Journey to Infinity War Part 5

Captain America Becomes The First Avenger: Journey to Infinity War Part 5
As we soldier on with our journey to Infinity War series, we take a look back at Captain America: The First Avenger, which I'll start talking about by saying this may very well be the most underrated move in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. But first, just to recap, we've covered every single Phase 1 solo movie so far, including Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2 and Thor. That just leaves Cap. The First Avenger was the final piece of the puzzle Marvel Studios needed to put in place in order to make The Avengers happen.

This is a movie that I feel many could do well to revisit. We've all come to not just love, but adore Chris Evans as Captain America and much of that has to do with the excellent trilogy of movies his character has been privy to outside of The Avengers movies. However,

Sebastian Stan Thinks It’s Possible That Bucky Will Become Captain America

Since his McU debut in Captain America: The First Avenger, Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes has grown into a bona fide fan-favorite, particularly after his villainous turn in the really rather excellent Winter Soldier. And while Marvel comic book readers believe it’s only a matter of time before Barnes assumes the Captain America title (perhaps in Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers 4?), we still have no confirmation on if that’ll indeed happen.

If Stan has his way though, the character will eventually head down that path, as the actor revealed recently that he’d love to take up the mantle. Speaking at a panel during Wizard World St. Louis, he said the following:

“I mean, yeah I would love that one day, absolutely. I don’t know when that day would be though, and I just think…it would be a very different Captain America you know, you wouldn

Sebastian Stan Teases Bucky’s Role In Avengers: Infinity War

Bucky Barnes, the man formerly known as the deadly Winter Soldier, has enjoyed a pretty incredible character arc since he was first introduced in Captain America: The First Avenger.

Back then, Sebastian Stan’s supporting player was a loyal ally to the scrawny Steve Rogers (Aka Captain America), only to fall into the hands of Hydra, the clandestine organization responsible for morphing Bucky into a brainwashed terrorist. But there is light at the end of the tunnel for Barnes, who found sanctuary and asylum in Wakanda at the tail-end of Civil War and will be back for Avengers: Infinity War.

As we’ve already heard, it’ll be T’Challa’s sister, Shuri, who helps him get back on his feet, separating Bucky Barnes from the Winter Soldier alias. It’s a tricky process, too, one which involves creating a “one-to-one digital representation” of Bucky’s brain. Yikes! But for Stan himself,

Netflix snaps up sci-fi thriller Extinction starring Lizzy Caplan and Michael Pena

After dropping The Cloverfield Paradox onto the streaming service this past weekend, Netflix has now snapped up the worldwide distribution rights to another sci-fi thriller which had previously been set for a theatrical release.

Extinction stars Michael Pena (Ant-Man) and Lizzy Caplan (Allied) as a married couple, where the husband has a recurring nightmare of losing his family. That nightmare becomes a reality when the planet is invaded by a force bent on destruction, and fighting for their lives, he comes to realize an unknown strength to keep his family safe from harm.

Directed by Ben Young (Hounds of Love), Extinction had previously been at Universal Pictures, where it was due to open this past January before being pulled from the studio’s slate. Also featuring in the cast are Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Lilly Aspell (Wonder Woman), Emma Booth (Hounds of Love), Israel Brossard (Happy Death Day) and Lex Shrapnel

Black Panther International Promos Reinforce Connection To Iron Man And McU At Large

One thing among many that has allowed Marvel Studios to succeed over the years is its uncanny ability to craft a shared universe populated by some of the most iconic superheroes around – in addition to others that have since become household names. This, of course, is what builds anticipation for team-up flicks like Avengers: Infinity War.

But before we get there, we have one more important stop on the road in the form of a solo movie, that being Black Panther. And even though T’Challa may seem like a relatively new commodity in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he’s been hinted at for years.

Perfectly illustrating this point is a new international trailer (seen at the top) that features lead actor Chadwick Boseman taking us on a guided tour of Easter eggs that have been dropped since 2010’s Iron Man 2. In that particular film, Wakanda was merely highlighted

Stunning Captain America Concept Art Takes Us Closer To The First Avenger

Marvel’s star-spangled patriot has enjoyed quite the cinematic journey since his first screen appearance in 2011.

That’s because seven years ago, Steve Rogers was initially introduced as a pathetic, yet deeply patriotic runt, one who wanted to fight for his country no matter the cost. And so, when Project Rebirth began seeking applicants, the young Rogers put his name forward without so much as a second’s hesitation, resulting in the Captain America we know and love.

Of course, he’ll be slightly different in Avengers: Infinity War, as Joe and Anthony Russo plan to bring Chris Evans’ crusader closer in line with Nomad. But as the countdown to Iw continues, Cbm has published a raft of concept art dedicated to Captain America: The First Avenger.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom gets a second trailer

It’s fair to say that the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was divisive. It certainly split the team at Flickering Myth. Now Universal have released a second look at J.A. Bayona’s blockbuster sequel, which you can watch right here…

Apparently riffing on Executive Producer Steven Spielberg’s very own Bfg with that opening shot, as well as the original Jurassic Park‘s Brachiosaurus reveal, it’s certainly a more effective showreel for what we can expect on June 22nd. As always, let us know your thoughts.

Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl Spot Gives Great Look At Bucky’s New Arm

Since his McU debut in Captain America: The First Avenger, Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes has grown into a bona fide fan-favorite, particularly after his villainous turn in the really rather excellent Winter Soldier. And while Marvel comic book readers believe it’s only a matter of time before Barnes assumes the Captain America title, we still have no confirmation on if that’ll indeed happen. What we can tell you, though, is that the character will be receiving an upgraded arm for his next big screen appearance, which comes in Avengers: Infinity War.

As you’ll surely remember, Civil War saw Iron Man destroy Bucky’s cyborg arm. Obviously, though, we knew he wouldn’t be running around the McU missing a limb and sure enough, the first trailer for Joe and Anthony Russo’s upcoming blockbuster featured him with both arms in tact. Now, Marvel’s released a second preview and once again,

Captain America Concept Art Highlights The Evolution Of Red Skull

Long before The Winter Soldier escaped into the wild and Marvel Studios waged a Civil War of its own, all eyes in the film business were trained on Captain America: The First Avenger.

Following in the footsteps of Jon Favreau’s Iron Man, which took the world by storm ($585 million) and cemented Robert Downey Jr.’s place as a future figurehead of the fledgling McU, The First Avenger was a defining moment for both Marvel Studios and its title hero.

Back in 2011, Captain America hadn’t been introduced to mainstream Hollywood, and it was only through Joe Johnston’s solid WWII actioner that film fans began to stand up and take notice of the star-spangled patriot, whose first port of call was toppling the über-villain known as Red Skull. And though he’s not exactly the most memorable of villains – even by Marvel’s own lowly standards – Hugo Weaving still
