Every Marvel Movie Ranked By How Much Money It Made In Theaters
Created by Mat Elfring on
One of the biggest and most successful franchises in modern day Hollywood is Marvel, and more specifically the MCU. Since its debut in 2008, it has brought in billions of dollars of revenue. Some of these movies alone--like Avengers: Infinity War--made a billion during their theatrical run. However, not every movie that features a Marvel character has struck gold. Some of these movies didn't make a ton of money during their theatrical releases.
Since Howard The Duck made his big screen debut in 1986, Marvel has worked with other studios--and eventually on its own--to bring some of its classic comic book heroes to life on the big screen. Looking back, it's crazy to think that Howard The Duck was the first Marvel character to get a big screen, feature-length movie. However, back then, Marvel wasn't as interested in making films in-house and sold the rights to its characters to the highest bidder.
Because other companies own the rights to some of Marvel's properties, characters from all across the Marvel universe have been featured in twice as many films as DC. This includes characters from The Avengers, Spider-Man, the X-Men, and more. Here is how all those films did in the box office, in order by worldwide totals, adjusted for inflation.
