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?

John Wick 3 Will Begin Shooting Earlier Than Expected

John Wick is gearing up for more action very soon. According to a new report, John Wick 3 is set to begin filming this April. It's unclear at the present time where filming will initially commence, but the movie is expected to film in various locations during production, including New York City, Montreal and possibly Russia and Spain. The movie is in pre-production right now, with director Chad Stahelski, who co-directed the first John Wick and went solo for John Wick: Chapter 2, returning to helm the final installment of the trilogy. Though it was initially believed to be shooting on March 1, that got pushed out, now the production table is being pulled back in.

As it stands, the plot for John Wick: Chapter 3 is being kept under wraps and it's not difficult to imagine that the creative team will want to keep it that way for as long as possible.

James Mangold Talks ‘Logan’: “I Tried To Make An Ozu Film With Mutants”

Lately, James Mangold — the co-writer and director of the Oscar nominated “Logan“— has been getting pretty testy about superhero movies. Most specifically, the filmmaker has railing against “fucking embarrassing” post-credits scenes, explaining in detail why he hates them (even though “The Wolverine” has a mid-credits scene). On a larger level, he doesn’t want “Logan” to be lumped into the same category of superhero films that are hitting the big screen every other month.

Logan Director Really Hates Post-Credit Scenes

Logan Director Really Hates Post-Credit Scenes
James Mangold has some very strong negative feelings about post-credit scenes. Post-credit scenes are a way of life now, though they've existed for decades. Marvel has really stepped up the post-credit scene game so much that it has become expected by fans who enjoy seeing the extra bits at the end of a movie. But some people really don't like them and even hate them, which is where Logan director James Mangold comes in. In a recent interview, the director reveals that he is "embarrassed" by the post-credit scenes along with a bunch of other language that we can't print.

While speaking at the 2018 Writers Guild Beyond Words Panel, James Mangold had a lot to say about the post-credit scene culture that we live in today and he did not hold back. Not only does the director find them "embarrassing," but thinks that movies that use them are bad as well.

James Mangold Says Post-Credits Scenes Are “F—— Embarrassing”

Even though his last two films were firmly blockbuster superhero pictures — “The Wolverine” and the Oscar-nominated “Logan” — writer/director James Mangold has frequently taken pains to separate himself from the pack.

“Tentpole movies in general…they are not movies, generally. They are bloated exercises in two-hour trailers for another movie they are going to sell you in two years. There are so many characters that each character gets an arc of about six-and-a-half minutes at best, and I’m not exaggerating.

Director James Mangold discusses Logan’s Oscar nomination

Director of Logan, James Mangold, has offered his thoughts on why the film received an Oscar nomination for best adapted screenplay.

This is the first time that a comic book film has been nominated in the adapted screenplay category, giving further credence to the notion that Logan is more than just your average superhero movie.

The gritty and dark take on Wolverine was Hugh Jackman’s final performance as the character and it went down tremendously with fans and critics alike – thanks in no small part to its distinct and grown up tone.

When asked by the La Times why he believes Logan was nominated, Mangold said: “On this film, we really focused on doing something different: a dramatic and character-driven film rather than trying to compete in the arms race of comic-book films… ‘I can spend more than you, I can blow up more than you.’ We wanted to

Hugh Jackman Offers Up His Thoughts On Logan’s Oscar Nomination

As superhero fans know all too well, the Academy Awards often turn their noses up at the comic book movie genre, with relatively few Marvel and DC productions having been nominated for Oscars, especially the non-technical ones, let alone having won them. This year, though, Logan is joining the select club as the X-Men pic has earned itself a nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Fans of the movie – which many call one of the best superhero films ever – are obviously overjoyed, as are its cast and crew.

The actor’s Tweet reads as follows:

Ridley Scott is game to make future Alien films for Disney: “It’s crazy not to do something with it”

Director Ridley Scott wants to make more films in the Aliens franchise, regardless of the fact that Disney has made a deal to acquire 21st Century Fox. Speaking to Digital Spy, the Alien: Covenant director had this to say:

“It looks to me that the Fox deal is certainly going to go ahead with Disney, and I’ve been with Fox for a number years now. I’m hoping I’ll still probably be there so whether or not they go ahead with such a dark subject, being Disney, as aliens remains to be seen. I think they should because I think, when people have a hard and fast franchise which has ongoing interest, it’s crazy not to do something with it.”

The Disney acquisition of 21st Century Fox has left some properties in a strange position. While it’s amazing to think about Wolverine joining the McU, it

Mulan Remake Shoots Soon as Disney Finalizes Production Team

Disney is moving full-steam ahead on their live-action Mulan remake. Key members of the crew have now been put in place as filming is slated to begin later this month. Though no release date has been specified by the studio, Mulan is slated to arrive in 2019 and, with filming taking place very soon, it's possible we could see the movie early on next year, as opposed to seeing it drop in the summer or winter. Though, there are already quite a few live-action remakes coming from the Mouse House next year, so it's going to be a bit crowded.

Niki Caro, best known for her work on the movie Whale Rider, has been tapped by Disney to direct the live-action Mulan. In a new report, it's revealed that Narcos' costume designer Bina Daigeler has been added to the crew. In addition, Sean Andrew Faden (Power Rangers) will serve as

The Greatest Showman reshoots apparently done by James Mangold

David Crow Dec 22, 2017

It appears that Logan director James Mangold stepped in for friend Hugh Jackman to direct reshoots on The Greatest Showman.

The Greatest Showman is now playing in cinemas, and it's so far been on the receiving end of pretty mixed reviews.

A new story over at Variety, meanwhile, has suggested that 20th Century Fox reportedly hired Hugh Jackman's friend and frequent collaborator, James Mangold, to direct a week of reshoots, as well as oversee some of the editing and post-production process.

According to the report, Mangold was paid a seven-figure amount and brought in to direct reshoots because the studio felt that The Greatest Showman director Michael Gracey had become “overwhelmed with the scope of the picture.” This apparently extended to the post-production process, as the studio determined Gracey also needed “assistance” in the editing bay.

For the record, Gracey has a long history of shooting commercials

James Mangold Helped Oversee ‘Greatest Showman’ Reshoots, Post-Production (Exclusive)
James Mangold came to the aid of his old pal Hugh Jackman at a critical moment during the making of “The Greatest Showman.” The “Logan” director was enlisted to help oversee a week of reshoots on the lavish movie musical last fall after 20th Century Fox, the studio behind the film, became concerned that Michael Gracey was overwhelmed with the scope of the picture.

Gracey, who is making his feature film directorial debut with “The Greatest Showman,” had an extensive resume of commercials work, but struggled to adjust to the pressure of calling the shots on an $84 million film. It was also determined that he could use a veteran’s assistance with the post-production process.

To that end, Mangold helped edit the picture. He was given an executive producer credit for his work and was paid a seven-figure salary for his contributions.

A source close to the studio disputed any notion that Gracey had lost control of the

Wolverine Fan Art Imagines Hugh Jackman In The Classic Costume

While you can’t fault his performance, every Wolverine fan wishes that Hugh Jackman had worn Logan’s classic comic book costume at least once in the movies. Sadly, with the actor saying goodbye to the role earlier this year, we’ll never get to see it. Thankfully, though, we’ve got an awesome piece of fan art which gives us a pretty good idea of what it could have looked like.

In keeping with superhero movies’ usually more realistic takes on comic book outfits, Jackman’s Wolverine is given a more armoured version of the traditional suit here, with black detailing instead of the typical blue or brown. However, it still looks awesome and is a damn sight more faithful than any of those boring black jumpsuits he wore in the role for nearly two decades.

Why did the actor never don the costume in the films, you ask?

Hugh Jackman said goodbye to Wolverine with “tears” in his eyes

Hugh Jackman has commented on the emotions he felt when saying goodbye to Wolverine.

This year Hugh Jackman finally said goodbye to the character Wolverine, giving his final performance as the mutant in the critically acclaimed Logan.

The actor had portrayed the fan favourite X-Man for 17 years so it was no easy thing to do. In an interview with Variety, Jackman touched on this, explaining how he felt and the regret he has.

“I wish I’d started playing him like that 17 years ago,” Jackman said. “So there’s some sense of missed opportunity, but when I saw Logan, I sat there and I did have tears in my eyes. The main feeling I had was: “There, that’s the character. I feel like I’ve done it now.” And I was calm and at peace, but I’m going to miss that guy.”
