Last year saw complete superhero domination as the list of top 11 movies at the domestic box office in 2018 had 7 superhero movies and we all knew this day is going to come one day and what happened back in 2018 was just a teaser and we are going to see the first complete trailer in 2019.
Well, as we all know that the superhero movies had a tremendous year last year at the box office and the best thing is that both Marvel and DC have tasted success in the same year as Marvel was the one which started the year with a bang and was also dropping bombs in the middle of the year and it was DC which ended the year which a bang.
Recently, the founder and editor of Box Office Guru, Gitesh Pandya has thrown light on the success of superhero films at the box office and the man has listed down all the Top 11 movies at the domestic box office with the amount of money they’ve earned and you’ll feel pretty bad about your predictions if you’re one of those people who underestimate the power of superhero films.
So, we can clearly see that there are a lot of movies which exceeded expectations tremendously and some were just too good to handle but Avengers: Infinity War was the movie which simply broke every doubtful and bad thing any analyst or person has said about superhero film. Also, there were some surprises in the genre of superheroes as there were some movies which came as a surprise and earned in huge amounts.
Sony is swimming in the pile of money that has been enabled largely by China! Venom had a budget of just $100 Million which is why it turned out to be one of the most profitable Superhero films of all time with $852.8 Million at the worldwide Box Office. It hasn’t just beaten single films, but also major franchises in Hollywood. Sure some franchises are extremely huge due to the number of films they have put out, but Venom has managed to take down the majority of movies in all major Hollywood franchises.
The movie has beaten these MCU films and we are sure that fans of Marvel feel a very big pain in their chest while reading this for sure. Box Office: The Incredible Hulk ($263.4 Million), Captain America: The First Avenger ($370.5 Million), Thor ($449.3 Million), Ant-Man ($519.3 Million), Iron Man ($585.1 Million), Ant-Man and the Wasp ($622 Million), Iron Man 2 ($623.9 Million), Thor: The Dark World ($644.5 Million), Doctor Strange ($677.7 Million), Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($714.2 Million), Guardians of the Galaxy ($773.3 Million).
Although, this is not the same case with Black Panther as we had high hopes with this movie but didn’t think of this much big success and this unexpected blockbuster Black Panther went on to earn a sum of $81.1 million. The surprise package of the year Black Panther seems to be the movie which had already generated a lot of curiosity in the minds and hearts of people even before its release and so, the movie went on to be a blockbuster.
Also, even the animated superhero movie, Incredibles 2 turned out to be an even more successful and interesting than the first one as the movie managed to earn a sum of $1.2 billion worldwide, which makes it the fourth-highest grossing film of 2018 and the second highest-grossing animated movie and the 16th highest-grossing movie of all-time. The movie also became the highest-grossing animated film domestically and became the fastest animated movie to gross the title of $1 billion ($608.6 million domestically).
But, we have to say in the year 2019 the superhero movies are going to make an even bigger and louder shout as movies like Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Shazam!, Joker, The New Mutants, Hellboy, Glass, and many more will see the light of day in the coming year.
So, we can see that what we faced were the winds of an upcoming thunderstorm and there are a lot of movies coming in 2019 which can outclass the other genre movies so easily and that day isn’t too far when all the movies will be of superheroes in lists like this. But, we want to know from you, according to your experience, which movie is going to earn the most next year? Tell us in the comments section down below.
