Marvel comics has been releasing it's characters to studios for adaptation since Howard the Duck. But Spiderman ($4 billion), Xmen ($3 billion), and too a lesser extent Blade ($415.1 million) and Fantastic Four have been making a lot of money for other studios.

The Remaining Marvel Characters have been brought back under Marvel's control in a franchise called the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So far 12 films have brought in $8.8 billion around the world with Iron Man proving to be one of the most lucrative characters of all time.

Guardians of the Galaxy proved to be an amazing success for a film with relatively unknown character. Ant Man is performing within reasonable expectations for the first 14 days, and will pull itself of the Incredible Hulk (the only film that could reasonably called a failure).

Rank Title Studio Worldwide
1 Marvel's The Avengers BV $1,519.6
2 Avengers: Age of Ultron BV $1,395.9
3 Iron Man 3 BV $1,215.4
4 Guardians of the Galaxy BV $774.2
5 Captain America: The Winter Soldier BV $714.8
6 Thor: The Dark World BV $644.8
7 Iron Man 2 Par. $623.9
8 Iron Man Par. $585.2
9 Thor Par. $449.3 $181.0
10 Captain America: The First Avenger Par. $370.6
11 The Incredible Hulk Uni. $263.4
12 Ant-Man BV $237.2 (14 days)
TOTAL: $8,794.3

What will happen to the upcoming slate of 9 films?

Captain America: Civil War - May 6, 2016
Doctor Strange - November 4, 2016

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - May 5, 2017
Thor: Ragnarok - July 28, 2017
Black Panther - November 3, 2017 (starring Chadwick Boseman)

Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 - May 4, 2018
Captain Marvel - July 6, 2018
Inhumans - November 2, 2018

Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 - May 3, 2019

I blame Stan Lee personally for setting back at least 1,000 years the general understanding of genetic mutations.

Other people are to blame for setting back the understanding of genetics at least 1,000 years (I'm looking at you news media).
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

There are billions and billions to go. The formula is solid, they just need to manage it carefully. The reboot of Fantastic Four will be a good test. It will also be a studo executive nailbiter to see if their choices for the Vision character are going to pay off, or spill the cart. Emotionless aliens are cool in comic books, but flat on the big screen. Consider the track record of the Silver Surfer.

AntMan has passed Captain America: The First Avenger both domestically and internationally. With $400m worldwide it seems to prove that the Marvel Cinematic Universe ((MCU) seems to be bulletproof.

The reboot of Fantastic Four was a massive fail, which shows that Marvel characters outside of MCU are still troubled. It is not clear if the planned sequel will be canned.

Saw Doctor Strange on Nflix, only because
it has Cumberbatch. He's always great in
anything. Too bad the story was stupid
beyond belief, the movie was about nothing.
I kept waiting for it to get started and 3/4
of the way thru I realized this was it, a non
story about some totally confusing place that
doesn't exist. That's why I never watch these
things, waste of 2 hours.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.
