The two Thor films are among the weakest of the Marvel films (by which I mean films actually made by Marvel, not the X-Men franchise or the godawful Fantastic Four films). Otherwise, most of them are quite good and they all tie in together.
The Last Stand, Apocalypse, and X-Men Origins: Wolverine were all pretty awful. This inconsistency is another thing dragging the franchise down. But if buck thought Avengers and Captain America were "awesome," then I think he would probably at least enjoy watching First Class + Days of Future Past, and probably Deadpool.
According to boxofficemojo The Wolverine has grossed $129,000,000 so far ($362 million worldwide) so can we finally kick DareDevil ($102M domestic/$179M global) off this list?
Marvel, however, does not produce all of the films made about their comic books.
They did it for X-Men
...this must be one of the most frequently updated quizzes on the site. I wouldn't mind seeing the number of answers expanded a bit though.
Also, it would be great to see a list of the top 50 superhero movies INCLUDING inflation.
Inflation is always interesting and I feel like it is more legitimate when dealing with what a movie actually made for its time. (101 Dalmatians did more at box office than Avatar, for example)
That way we don't have to keep on seeing all of these new movies continuously pop up in nearly every quiz.
- Funfact: Actor Chris Evans appears in this list as Captain America but also as The Human Tourch in Fantastic Four
- Funfact 2: While Batman has the most movies (7)in this list. Iron Man/Tony Stark makes the most appearances (also in Avengers, Spiderman Homecomming, Thor, and Captain America)
Although I suggest updating it!
Barry B. Benson is a type of superhero.
Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 1 and 2 you might like if you would enjoy a goofy adventure/comedy set in space. Thor: Ragnarok maybe, as well, by the same rationale.
Deadpool 1 and 2 are both hilarious deconstructions of the superhero genre.
Mangold's The Wolverine (2013) and Logan are both really good, too, and like the Nolan Bat-films if you know about the X-Men source material before going in it will enhance your enjoyment of the films but it's not totally necessary. Very much worth checking out, but definitely skip the first one (X-Men Origins: Wolverine)
X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past are among my personal favorites but I wouldn't ever recommend them to someone who doesn't like the genre.
Definitely all four Avengers movies.
I think you're probably right that it won't beat The Force Awaken's domestic total. I doubt that any Star Wars movie will break that record, either, after Disney effectively killed the franchise.
However, this quiz has far fewer comments than many other quizzes, so, was there some special reason you felt the need to be condescending here, even if it meant stating something that's obviously not even true? The Countries of the World quiz has 1003 "recent" comments.
There are A LOT of very samey films on that list. The plots are very generic. But, I guess people must like them, if they keep going to see them. Each to their own.
