Top 7 Highest Grossing Marvel Movies

Marvel Cinematic Universe is currently the biggest Movie franchise of Hollywood. It includes the movie like Ironman, Avengers, Captain America, Thor etc. which had created new records not only in America but world wide. Finding a Marvel fan in any part of the world is a piece of cake. Upcoming movies like Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers Infinity wars will definitely set a new Barrier for movies.

Now we have shortlisted the top 10 grossing Marvel movies. So here we go…

7. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Domestic Gross: $364 million (actual domestic gross: $333 millions

Grossing $773.3 million worldwide and becoming the highest-grossing superhero film of 2014

Even before the Guardians came along, the Marvel Cinematic Universe certainly wasn’t lacking for humor. With Robert Downey Jr. leading the pack with his interpretation of Tony Stark/Iron Man as the class clown, Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner/Hulk and Scarlett Johansson’s Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow offering sly asides, and Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers/Captain America and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor/just Thor milking culture-clash jokes, the MCU often felt like an extravagant party filled with funny, good-looking people.

But it was with 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy that the titular misfits showed the other heroes how to really loosen up. Indeed, it was the movie’s rollicking good cheer that helped endear it to folks who otherwise wouldn’t have known the Guardians’ Rocket Raccoon from The Beatles’ Rocky Raccoon. Minor quibbles aside, Guardians of the Galaxy is winning entertainment, boasting a sleek visual style that befits its carefully contained universe and unique characters.

6. DEADPOOL

Adjusted Domestic Gross: $373 million (actual domestic gross: $363 million)

Worldwide Collection $783 Million.

And just when it seemed as if the Guardians would remain the coolest kids on the Marvel block, along came the joke at the center of 2016’s Deadpool.

A superhero romp that threatened to be smug, smarmy and self-satisfied is — well, yes, Deadpool is occasionally all those things. But it’s also fresh, funny and absolutely kick-ass. With apologies to the other performers, this is The Ryan Reynolds Show from beginning to end; the actor clearly relishes rescuing this character from “worst adaptations” lists following his guest-starring role in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

The relationship between Deadpool/Wade Wilson and the tough and beautiful Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) is unexpectedly touching, which allows a break from the otherwise non-stop snark. The visual effects are serviceable rather than sizzling, but they get the job done. As for the requisite Stan Lee cameo, it’s a keeper. ‘Nuff said.

5. IRON MAN

Adjusted Domestic Gross: $392 million (actual domestic gross: $318 million)  $585.8 million world wide.

The importance of 2008’s Iron Man cannot be overstated. As the opening film in what was to become the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it set a winning tone with its mix of large-scale action, ingratiating humor, finely-etched characterizations, and, most crucially, perfectly cast actors. It’s a formula that Marvel has attempted to emulate with practically every picture – sometimes falling short, but more often soaring as high as Iron Man‘s first outing.

While Pixar has been celebrated for choosing the best voice actors regardless of clout, Marvel deserves some cred too. For a quarter-century, Robert Downey Jr. had been trapped in a roller-coaster career, and he was hardly a box-office draw when chosen to play Tony Stark. Now, it’s impossible to envision anyone else in the role, and the film owes much of its substantial success to him.

With a career resurgence triggered by Iron Man — one which has since allowed him to earn as much as $50 million per movie — Downey has successfully pulled off one of the greatest comebacks in Hollywood history.

4. CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Adjusted Domestic Gross: $413 million (actual domestic gross: $408 million)

In an era in which Marvel movies are released with the same frequency as bugs hitting windshields, 2016’s Captain America: Civil War still manages to rise above the fray and declare itself one of the genre’s finest. With no less than 12 superheroes on display, this clearly isn’t a one-man show; at the same time, it’s apparent that Captain America (Chris Evans) is the principal character in this chapter of the ongoing saga.

Avoiding the bloat that sometimes affects these ensemble efforts, this one establishes a beautiful balance between quieter character-driven sequences and splashy action set-pieces. Tom Holland is introduced as the new Spider-Man, and he’s simply divine — ditto Chadwick Boseman as the Black Panther.

As for the series vets, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) continues to register as perhaps the most fascinating and complex character in this Marvel world order: smart, brave, witty, troubled, and able to read people and situations better than most of the others. She’s a dynamic figure — gee, you think somebody would have given her a movie of her own by now.

3. IRON MAN 3

Adjusted Domestic Gross: $431 million (actual domestic gross: $409 million)

It’s full speed ahead for 2013’s Iron Man 3, which proved to be the most financially successful of all three Iron Man efforts (both in adjusted and actual dollars). Like Iron Man 2, this third entry is occasionally arid and frequently overstuffed, yet it does just enough right to drag it into the win column. The disappointment isn’t pronounced enough to elicit rage against the machine, but many discerning viewers might still feel a twinge of remorse aimed at the man in the iron mask.

Robert Downey Jr. still delivers the one-liners with gusto (“I loved you in A Christmas Story,” he tells one bespectacled kid), and Stark’s scenes opposite a helpful young boy (Ty Simpkins) provide the movie with most of its heart and humor. Meanwhile, Ben Kingsley’s turn as the Mandarin is exemplary, although the particulars of the role — specifically that final twist (no spoilers here) — infuriated many viewers while delighting the rest.

2. AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Adjusted Domestic Gross: $473 million (actual domestic gross: $459 million)

The marvel that was 2012’s The Avengers received a letdown of a sequel in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, a hype-driven CGI effort that mainly emerged as a blown opportunity. The meat of the story finds Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) going the Dr. Frankenstein route and attempting to create an AI he hopes will serve as a global peacekeeper. Instead of a Gandhi/RoboCop hybrid, Stark ends up with Ultron (voiced by James Spader), a malicious being with the goal of wiping out the human race. The heroes all suit up to tackle this menace, and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) comes along to deliver his standard rallying speech.

The best moments in Avengers: Age of Ultron are those in which the characters are allowed to relate to one another, whether in casual conversation, via jokey exchanges, or through verbal assaults. These choice bits are unfortunately offset by woefully truncated subplots as well as sloppily filmed battle sequences that turn out to be more exhausting than exhilarating.

1. THE AVENGERS

Adjusted Domestic Gross: $679 million (actual domestic gross: $623 million)

Whether it’s the adjusted domestic gross or the actual domestic gross, it doesn’t matter. Whether it’s the domestic total for the international total, it likewise makes no difference. In all financial facets of the game, 2012’s The Avengers comes out on top no matter how the box office pie is sliced. That’s hardly unexpected, given its standing as a brainy and brawny blast. The Avengers was a culmination of the numerous super-sagas that had been building toward it, and it delivered on every count.

As expected, Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man provides the bulk of the humor, Chris Evans’ Captain America and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor provide the bulk of the beef, and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow provides some softer moments to go along with the expected athleticism. Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) and Tom Hiddleston (the villainous Loki) are also on hand, yet the surprising scene-stealer is Mark Ruffalo, who provides Bruce Banner with a stirring soulfulness. What’s more, by employing the motion-capture technique rather than straight-up CGI, this is the first film to absolutely nail the Hulk.
