Marvel Is Dominating The Box Office In 2018

Are you surprised?

We’re half-way through the year, and so far it’s been a huge one for Marvel!

Via Uproxx:

So far in 2018, Marvel has taken the top three movies at the box office. Avengers: Infinity War has officially racked up $2 billion, only the fourth movie to ever pull that it off. It may, with a little luck, even beat out Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ record-breaking numbers, although James Cameron’s control of the top two slots with Titanic and Avatar is safe. Black Panther, at $1.34 billion, may be even more of a phenomenon, considering it was a solo outing largely unconnected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, beyond a nod to Captain America: Civil War. And bringing up the rear at third is Deadpool 2, which is currently at $655 million at the box office. The only real competitor for third would be Ready Player One, with $580 million, but Wade Wilson can only widen his lead. Just for a little contrast, Disney bought Marvel for $4 billion back in 2009, and just the raw box office here is $4 billion.

And that’s before Ant-Man And The Wasp arrives in July…

Ant-Man probably won’t be AS BIG, but like…there’s always hope, right?
