Might want to be a bit more specific on the percentage of Americans who go to the movies. https://www.statista.com/statistics/264396/frequency-of-going-to-the-movies-in-the-us/ Looks like 86% of Americans "go to the movies", as only 14% said they never go.

When you're done with the quiz it says "In 1930, more than 65% of Americans went to the theater every week. Today it's around 10%". I don't doubt that for a second. In the age of the internet and I mean the price you pay for a ticket...

Also, the 1930s was during the Great Depression and people were looking for movies as a way to escape the daily drudge. People no longer see movies as their cheap means of escape.

I think the issue was whether "go to the movies" means to go to the movies weekly or monthly or annually, etc. It should be "go to the movies weekly".

Sure, the internet nowadays, but TV didn't really kick in until the 50s. If you wanted to see moving pictures in the 1930s you went to the cinema.

"Film noir movie" is somewhat redundant, no? Isn't it usually just called a "film noir"?

That also surprised me. Even with Endgame dominating the box office I would have thought the first MCU film would be pretty easy to guess. Or maybe there aren’t as many MCU fans here as I thought.

Batman came out in 1989. Not sure why it doesn’t count. I have never seen a superhero movie but I remember not going to see batman so i wouldn’t have to see the endless sequels

There were superhero movies before Batman. Batman belongs to the comic book publisher DC while the question concerns another publisher, Marvel. There where other movies adapted from Marvel comic books before 2008. However, only with Iron Man did they start to connect their individual movies into one long narrative that culminated in the Avengers movies where many superheroes fight together - and this super-narrative they call Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Because Spider-Man (2002) is not part of the MCU. Ah. I guess that's where people were getting confused. They didn't know what the MCU was. That makes sense.

I guess I'm going to have to google to find out what the MCU is. I'm guessing it's something for children? Ok, done, it's a film series based on American comic books, so for kids. That would explain the low percentage of correct answers as I'm sure that most people taking these quizzes are adults and wouldn't have watched these films

There are many, many, many adults who watch these movies, and most are not even comic book fans. The latest MCU installment is about to become the highest-grossing movie of all time. To label comic books or their adaptations as kids stuff does not reflect reality in this day and age.

Labeling comic book content "for kids", and in so smug a way, shows your ignorance and pedantry. Might want to leave the 1950's mentality, we're in the 21th century.

Wasn't the first movie in the MCU the Hulk? At the end of that movie Robert Downey Jr appears as Tony Stark talking with SHIELD.
