    So Stan Lee is still the highest grossing actor ever beating out Harrison Ford on $4.86 billion.

    I’m fully confident that the Coon and Friends franchise can catch them in due time.

    It’s damned impressive. 17 movies in and its latest outing still dominates the Box Office, audiences are *still* excited for the next outing. I’m waiting for the moment when over-saturation happens; you’d have thought with 3 MCU films this year instead of the normal 2, it would be now, but people are loving Ragnarok, possibly more than GOGT2 or Homecoming.

    I say bring on Black Panther.

    Here’s a fun game I like to play in my own head:

    Since the Disney deal (2009), has Marvel been a better/more consistent studio than Pixar for Disney??

    I’m just hoping the success of this film helps the “We’re Wolves” film get funding.

    It’s impressive but it helps that the franchise has like over a dozen movies

    Not a lot of franchises that manage to have so many entries. More so in the last 15 years where they would be able to earn that money directly as opposed to being adjusted

    “Longest running blockbuster franchise has somehow made the most money.”

    It’s still impressive though, they’re still pumping out solid movies. If anything they’re getting better, finding ways to keep us hooked despite the fact that we definitely see the formula they’re wroking with now and know its flaws well.

    Thor: Ragnarok, especially was a fantastic show of this: it wasn’t anything new (except Taika Waititi’s oddball humor, and actual character development with potentially long running ramifications) but it was a very refined form of the art they’ve been working on for almost a decade.

    I’m really worried about the possibility of Thanos sucking though. They’ve really set themselves up for a fall by teasing this guy for 5+ years now. They have to do him real well or audiences are going to be incredibly disappointed.

    Hats off to Marvel Studios. It’s far too easy to nitpick their success than appreciate it, and I say this as someone who’s fallen off the wagon.

    Still less than Star Wars, accounting for inflation.

    ANH alone made $2 billion in 2017 numbers.

    So according to Hollywood Accounting they are only 2 billion in the red.

    Damn impressive!

    And Disney was losing money hand over fist in the late 90s to early 2000s. It’s amazing how they turned it around.

    I think Disney and Apple are the two biggest success stories in the last 20 years, both were brought back from the brinks of extinction.

    If Ragnarok hits a billion that means each of their main trilogies (Cap, Iron Man, Thor) has had a billion dollar film… Absurd

    Every single one of their films is also a critical success (RT as metric).

    *But omg if they had more memorable music themes and more developed villains then they’d really be successful. Leik why don’t they listen to me?*

    The next phase worries me a bit actually. Not individually because they’ll be fine but the team-ups. Strange, SM, BP, Carol, and Scott doesn’t fit together nearly as easily as IM, Thor, Cap, Hulk.

    Just saying Cage and Snipes aren’t busy, Midnight Sons with Pete or Scott tagging along for quips would work better than anything I can think of with this phase’s pool of mains.

    Regardless of you thoughts towards the films, you can’t deny the turnaround that Feige managed to instigate considering how close Marvel was to liquidation in the early 2000s

    With the momentum that the Fast and Furious franchise has, it wouldn’t surprise me if it hits this mile stone eventually

    And they did it with only 4 billion movies.

    Impressive.

    There’s a classic trivia question: What’s the highest grossing cinema franchise?

    It’s Harry potter followed by James Bond. I wonder if the Marvel universe counts as one ‘franchise’ to make it the highest grossing of all time.

    Either way they’re making boat loads of money.

    I remember the exact day in summer of 2008 when I saw Iron Man at the theater. I remember being so excited at how they managed to make a great Iron Man movie and then the whole theater clapped and cheered when Samuel Jackson showed up at the end and mentioned the Avengers. Who would have thought they would create such a mega successful franchise. I couldn’t even imagine a live action Avengers movie on screen but they did it.
