The latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) franchise has just hit the big screen. Since it's release on Friday, Spider-Man: Homecoming has pulled some $117 at the domestic box office and adds to the very successful array of MCU movies, according to movie data website The Numbers.
As the below infographic shows, MCU franchise revenue has skyrocketed in a very short time in comparison to the other big franchises like, James Bond, Star Wars, Batman or Harry Potter. It's important to note that this is the first Spider-Man film released as part of the MCU. The previous 5 Spider-Man films, released since 2002, don't count towards that franchise.
Now grossing at more than $5 billion cumulated since Iron Man was released in 2008, the MCU franchise is closing in on the James Bond franchise which stands at almost $5.5 billion, since Dr. No was released in 1963. Star Wars is still the biggest franchise in history, having accumulated $6.3 billion, since the first film, Star Wars Ep. IV: A New Hope, was screened in 1977.
