Movie sources in North America from 1995 to 2019, by average box office revenue

Movies based on comics and graphic novels were the most successful movies at the box office between the years 1995 and 2019, with an average revenue of almost 99 million U.S. dollars. The enormous success of major Marvel productions like 'Avengers: Endgame' and other films within the franchise helped to drive up the average, and with multiple more movie releases of this nature coming up in the next few years, it is fair to assume that average revenues from films inspired by comics and graphic novels will continue to grow in the future.
