The 5 Top grossing films based on Marvel comics
Marvel Comics have provided inspiration for many contemporary movies. In fact, one average about three films based upon these comics are released annually. It seems like whenever a comic book giant like Marvel is involved, the films are destined to be box office blockbusters.
These are the top five grossing Marvel films of all time:
5] Spiderman (2002) $403 million
Even though there have been three Spiderman films, the original is still the top grossing one. Tobey Maguire stars as Peter Parker in this hit. This movie depicts the story of how Peter Parker changed into the web spinning super hero. This film also stars Kirsten Dunst and Willem Dafoe.
4] Captain America: Civil War (2016) $408 million
The latest Avengers installment ranks fourth on this list. This movie chronicles a division between former allies, Captain America and Iron Man. Again, the same cast returns to star in their roles as Avengers.
3] Iron Man 3 (2013) $409 million
The third Iron Man film is the highest grossing. Robert Downey Jr. returns as the title character. With the evil terrorist, Mandarin, seeking to destroy Earth, Tony Stark’s alter ego emerges and defeats him.
2] Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) $459 million
Another installment of the Avengers currently ranks number two in terms of sales. This time, the villain, Ultron (portrayed by James Spader) attempts to destroy a peacekeeping force established by Iron Man and the Hulk.
1] The Avengers (2012) $623 million
With a cast that includes Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, and Chris Evans, this movie was destined to soar at the box office. In this original installment, the villain, Loki, attempts to destroy the Earth. Of course, he is defeated by the heroic Avengers.
Given the success of Marvel Comic’s on the big screen, they will no doubt continue to inspire future movies as well as other industries such as gaming as you can find various Marvel inspired games on many online casino New Zealand found at casinoonline.co.nz. Perhaps some of the upcoming Phase 3 of the Marvel film releases such as Doctor Strange, Guardians of Galaxy vol.2 or The Avengers: Infinity Wars will make this list of top grossing films.
