It does not take a mathematical genius to determine that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has had a fantastic yr. However, fanatics won’t notice to how just right the MCU did at the 2019 field place of job.
There had been 3 installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe saga launched in 2019 – Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home (in that order of free up). Three Marvel movies, which controlled to generate over $Five billion at the global field place of job. Not too shabby.
Here’s the breakdown of the MCU’s greatest annual income but (expressed in international totals):
- Avengers: Endgame – $2.795B
- Captain Marvel – $1.128B
- Spider-Man: Far From Home – $1.097B
Those 3 numbers equate to a complete of $5.02B, which is, once more, an insane amount of cash for one franchise to generate to in only one yr.
There is a caveat to this, in fact: The Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise generated over $Five billion in 2019 – however no longer all of that cash filtered again to Marvel Studios and Disney. Spider-Man: Far From Home was once a Sony Pictures manufacturing, this means that that studio took the income from that billion-dollar good fortune tale. Marvel Studios simply helped them after all recover from the hump. Not to weep too exhausting, although: Marvel Studios simply had the small accomplishments of launching their first female-led superhero franchise to a billion-dollar debut (Captain Marvel), and adopted that up with liberating the highest-grossing film of all time (Avengers: Endgame). So, suffice to mention that Kevin Feige and Co. can breathe simple that they did just right through their Disney overlords this yr.
What will likely be attention-grabbing to look is how the Marvel Cinematic Universe income fare within the Phase four generation, the place main headlining stars like Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans have moved on, and there are not any main crossover occasions or Avengers movies to talk of. More to the purpose: Phase four will likely be attention-grabbing some wildly numerous ideas from the Marvel Comics Universe into the MCU (Eternals), whilst additionally looking to retcon errors of the previous (Shang-Chi) and take some established solo franchise (Thor, Doctor Strange) into some bizarre new puts (Love & Thunder and In the Multiverse of Madness, respectively).
