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, raking in $242 million domestically over the three-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 us 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?

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

What's at Stake Financially in Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's Split?
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are parting ways after two and a half years of marriage and nearly seven years as a couple, leaving both actors with the eventual task of splitting up their assets.

Both stars have made a considerable amount of money both before and during their marriage, and it remains unclear if they had a prenuptial agreement in place. But as with most high-profile celebrity divorces, it is likely that their respective business managers will handle settlement negotiations.

Aniston has remained one of the highest paid actresses in the world since their marriage in 2015. She made $16.5 million during their first year together,

Kevin Feige Discusses Bringing Black Panther To The Big Screen and Hopes Ryan Coogler Comes Back For the Sequel

Black Panther has officially been released in theaters and if you haven't seen it yet, make sure to check it out sometime this weekend. In a recent interview with Variety, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige talks about bringing Black Panther to the big screen.

One of the first questions that Feige was asked in the interview is why it took so long to get Black Panther made and he says:

"I don’t know. This is the 10-year anniversary of Marvel Studios, starting with “Iron Man.” I’ll speak starting in 2008. For us, we were building the Avengers. That took up the first five years. And as audiences continued to come, we got to tell more of these stories and we got to a point where we were developing 'Captain America: Civil War.' We had an opportunity to introduce a character that had no allegiance to either Iron

‘Black Panther’: Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige on Casting Chadwick Boseman and Sequel Talk

‘Black Panther’: Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige on Casting Chadwick Boseman and Sequel Talk
Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, first realized that “Black Panther” was more than just movie when the trailer debuted at Cinemacon last year to tears and cheers. It suddenly dawned on him that “we were doing something that people had been waiting their entire lives to see,” says Feige, who always looked up to onscreen heroes such as Luke Skywalker. “That was something that a white male that grew up in the United States can take for granted. And you don’t take that for granted anymore. Everyone deserves to see themselves reflected on that silver screen and the inspiration that comes from it.”

Black Panther” is set to shatter box office records as the first comic-book tentpole with a primarily black cast (starring Chadwick Boseman as the title character) and director (Ryan Coogler). For a cover story ahead of the film’s release, Feige spoke to Variety about the latest Marvel movie.

Black Panther Easter Egg Was Just Discovered in Iron Man 2

Black Panther Easter Egg Was Just Discovered in Iron Man 2
After the success of Iron Man, Iron Man 2 was quickly green lit and came out in 2010, 2 years after the first movie. A lot has happened in the 8 years since Iron Man 2, but fans are just now noticing that the movie contains a Black Panther Easter Egg, which is 6 years before the character made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Civil War. In addition to setting up Black Panther, Civil War also set fans up for Spider-Man: Homecoming and Infinity War. However, the McU would not exist today if it were not for the early foreshadowing in the Iron Man movies.

When most fans think of Easter Eggs in Iron Man 2, they think of Thor's hammer popping in the post-credit scene. As far as other foreshadowing, Captain America is teased as is the location of the Hulk in Nevada during the scene with the S.H.I.E.

Turns Out Marvel Snuck A Black Panther Easter Egg Into Iron Man 2

There’s more to Wakanda than meets the eye.

Sure, Marvel’s isolated utopia rests on a large deposit of vibranium and is home to the Dora Milaje, but Black Panther‘s rich and bustling habitat is much more than your typical movie setting.

It’s a beautiful microcosm that exists on the cutting edge of weapons technology, though it’s only at the tail-end of Ryan Coogler’s standalone Black Panther movie that T’Challa decides to be a bit more liberal with Wakanda’s riches and cooperate with the outside world.

That post-credits scene dovetails nicely with Avengers: Infinity War, which heralds the moment when Earth’s Mightiest Heroes come together in the face of Thanos. But it seems Joe and Anthony Russo’s blockbuster epic isn’t the only McU movie with ties to Black Panther, as an existing photo has reaffirmed that Wakanda was briefly referenced during Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2 Had An Awesome Black Panther Easter Egg

Black Panther will introduce viewers to the fictional African country of Wakanda. But while this may be a new experience on the big screen, Marvel has been hinting at the existence of Wakanda since 2010’s Iron Man 2; that film featured a background Easter Egg revealing Wakanda’s presence in the world – and, crucially, S.H.I.E.L.D.’s interest in the nation.

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,

Where Was Clark Gregg in Marvel's 10th Anniversary Photo?

Earlier today, Marvel Studios kicked off their year-long 10th Anniversary celebration by unveiling an epic "class photo," that featured over 80 actors and filmmakers who helped shape the McU throughout its first 10 years. The photo didn't feature every main star and filmmaker though, and one of the most notable exceptions was Clark Gregg, who played Agent Phil Coulson in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and The Avengers, before he was "killed" in that movie, only to be resurrected for the ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is currently in its fifth season. Shortly after the class photo was unveiled, Clark Gregg took to social media, to reveal why he wasn't present for this epic photoshoot.

"So sad I couldn't make this shoot. Honored to be part of McU. I was proudly repping #agentsofSHIELD at #MadisonSquareGarden for @NY_Comic_Con @Marvel."

Marvel also released a behind-the-scenes video, revealing that the photo

Marvel Almost Made a War Machine Movie After Iron Man 2

When the Marvel Cinematic Universe was still in its infancy and the studio was still trying to figure out what their grand master plan would be. There was a point after Iron Man 2 where they almost made a War Machine movie!

This bit of previously unknown information comes from Black Panther screenwriter Joe Robert Cole. During an interview with Complex, the writer says that he pitched an idea to Kevin Feige and the company and it came close to getting the greenlight before they decided to take things in a different direction. Cole explained:

"At that meeting, they also said they were thinking of doing a War Machine movie. I pitched a concept and won that job to write the script but they decided, based on what Iron Man 3 was going to be, they weren’t going to do War Machine anymore. But they asked if I’d

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

Black Panther Promo Calls Out All of McU’s Nods to Wakanda

Black Panther‘s arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a long time coming, at least according to the latest promo for the upcoming film. The new video flashes back to some of the McU’s earliest films, which paved the road to Wakanda starting in 2010.

Black Panther himself Chadwick Boseman narrates the promo, pointing out references in Iron Man 2, Captain America, Avengers: Age of Ultron and — of course — Captain America: Civil War. “My character comes from a place called Wakanda. While that name may not be familiar, it’s actually connected to the Avengers universe in ways you never knew,” he explains. “In fact, it might be the most talked about out of any other Marvel movie.”

‘Black Panther’ Will Break Many Box-Office Records, But Here’s How It Really Stands to Compare

  • Indiewire
A little over a week from its domestic opening next Friday, Marvel and Disney’s “Black Panther” is expected to gross an estimated $150 million in its first weekend — and that assessment came before the onslaught of stellar initial reviews.

After “The Fate of the Furious,” “Black Panther” is the second most-expensive film directed by an African-American. Any Marvel film, particularly one with a sense of original content and a new take on the comic universe, is guaranteed a big opening, but this one also has the full attention of African-American audiences who are among the most-frequent moviegoers, buying about a quarter of all domestic tickets annually — double their share of the population.

Black Panther” is poised to open better than any of the three Marvel movies in 2017 (the best performer was “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” at $146.5 million). At $150 million or better, it would be ahead of all but

Marvel Fans Think Wolverine Gave Thanos His Scars In The McU

The latest TV spot for Avengers: Infinity War gave us another look at the much-anticipated, rarely-seen Thanos, as the final shot of the teaser featured an extreme close-up on the character. Apart from showing off the awesome CGI, this also allowed us to get a good look at the nasty triple scar the Mad Titan has running down the left side of his purple face.

Naturally, the shape of the scar has reminded Marvel fans of another iconic character: Wolverine. Wouldn’t it be fun to imagine that the Adamantium Avenger was the one responsible for giving Thanos his injuries? It sure would be, and already that’s what some people are hoping for on Twitter.

In a perfect world, #wolverine fought #thanos and left him with a scar to be remembered. #AvengersInfinityWar #SuperBowl #Marvel pic.twitter.com/AkiJeWowB1

Thor Gives the McU Its Best Villain: Journey to Infinity War Part 4

Thor Gives the McU Its Best Villain: Journey to Infinity War Part 4
Our journey to Infinity War continues with 2011's Thor. So far, we've covered the perfect start to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man, the studio's green-headed step-child with The Incredible Hulk and Marvel's first sequel, which is admittedly uneven, with Iron Man 2. Now, we have the introduction of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder as we take our first steps into the cosmic side of the Marvel universe. This may not be a great movie in its own right, but it's an important one for the McU.

I'll be the first to admit, I don't have a lot of personal love for this movie. The side of the Marvel universe that Thor explores is not something I was ever particularly interested in, but as a fan of comics my whole life, knowing that they were building to The Avengers, I was in and saw Thor in theaters opening weekend.

"Berlin, I Love You"

  • SneakPeek
A few years back there was a positive buzz around the "Cities Of Love" movie anthology, a combination of social movement and film series, with each production focusing on a specific city, highlighting the distinctive qualities and character of that location seeking to bridge culture gaps, educate, entertain and inspire:

"Cities of Love" rolled out in 2006 with the release of "Paris, I Love You" ( aka "Paris, je t'aime"), noted as a critically acclaimed success. 

This was followed by "New York, I Love You" (2008)... 

...and "Rio, I Love You" (2014).  

2018 will see the release of the fourth major installment in this anthology, featuring an A-list cast.

"Berlin, I Love You" (2018) currently in post-production, is scheduled for release this year, featuring 10 different directors telling 10 vignette-style love stories. 

Main cast includes Keira Knightley: News broke in September that Knightley was joining the project, and she may be the most important member of the cast.

Examining Paramount Pictures' franchise slate

Mark Harrison Jan 30, 2018

Paramount Pictures has faced a tougher time than most studios of late. What, though, does it have planned next?

In any given year, the top ten highest grossing films at the worldwide box office are mostly made up of franchise films or adaptations of existing intellectual property. Around the world, the movie business is a franchise game right now, and of the traditional 'big six' studios, Paramount Pictures seems to be falling behind its rivals.

After an almost unbroken string of box office flops and underperformers in 2017, the studio has recently been in the news after selling international distribution rights to Alex Garland's hotly anticipated second feature Annihilation to Netflix, and are reportedly looking to do the same on the long delayed third Cloverfield film.
