2019 has proved to be a successful year for the Marvel movies and an emotional ride for Marvel fans since the “Infinity Saga” came to an end after a decade. Marvel Studios released three blockbusters this year, and all of them have become a part of the $1 billion club. Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Although Sony owns the distribution rights of Spider-Man movies, all of them exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so here we go.
1- Avengers: Endgame
Released on 22nd April 2019, Avengers: Endgame has become the highest-grossing movie of ALL TIME crossing the record keeper, Avatar by making $2.79 billion at the global box office. Not only this, but Endgame also shattered the records of other famous movies such as Titanic, Jurrasic World, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The sequel to Infinity War, Endgame is the 22nd film in the MCU. The movie is the finale of all MCU movies till now. It’s all been leading to this…
2- Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel is one of the few origin stories that hit a billion-dollar mark on the box office. Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the movie managed to earn approximately $1.12 billion at the box office.
This made Captain Marvel the 7th movie around the world with the biggest opening yet. The film introduces a major subplot (The Kree-Skrull wars) that could play an important role in the upcoming Marvel movies. Brie Larson plays Captain Marvel in the MCU.
3- Spider-Man: Far From Home
The third MCU movie on the list is Spider-Man: Far from Home with $1.1 billion at the global box office. The movie is Sony’s highest-grossing film of all time leaving Skyfall(2012) behind. It is also the first Spider-Man movie to cross a billion-dollar mark. The movie is directed by Jon Watts and was released in June 2019.
Even after the record-breaking business, we might not (or maybe we will) see Spider-Man with other Avengers. That’s because of Sony and Disney’s dispute over revenue sharing. Sony has confirmed that they are pulling out Spider-Man from the MCU. Hence, the next Spider-Man movie will be standalone without other MCU characters.
