Marvel Comics films: production costs and global box office revenue 2002-2019 The Marvel Comics movies are notorious for their high production budgets, but the highest on record is the staggering 356 million U.S. dollars it cost to produce ‘Avengers: Endgame’. Luckily, the film performed impressively at the box office, earning over 2.7 billion dollars worldwide. Many of the movies generated box office revenues exceeding one billion dollars, including ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’, ‘Iron Man 3’ and ‘Captain America: Civil War’, and also cost up to 260 million to make.
Superheroes: the new faces of Hollywood

Superhero movies have been on trend for years, experiencing a surge in popularity along with comics and graphic novels – but it isn’t just Marvel leading the way. In 2018, DC Comics release ‘Aquaman’ made almost 1.15 billion U.S. dollars in box office revenue worldwide, knocking 2012 movie ‘The Dark Night Rises’ and the first instalment in the trilogy, ‘The Dark Knight’ down into second and third place. The year before, ‘Wonder Woman’ grossed over 820 million dollars, beating 2016 feature ‘Suicide Squad’ (which also made an impressive 746 million at the global box office).

In the U.S., adults enjoy seeing superhero movies and say they will continue to see them in movie theaters. Data shows that the majority of adults aged between 18 and 44 years old have also watched a superhero film at the cinema in the past year, with 18 to 29 years old demonstrating a particular enthusiasm for the genre.
