Just one week ago, we posted an infographic from Comic Alliance that showed which superhero movies we had to look forward to into 2020 and beyond. But yesterday Marvel official announced their phase 3 films, making the previous infographic inaccurate. Thankfully, graphic artist Dylan Todd updated it and now we have a more solid picture of the movies we will be watching for the next 6 years.
A few things of note:
- 2016 and 2018 each have 7 films, but 2017 has an insane amount with 10.
- The average ticket price in Los Angeles is $13.50. If tickets prices hold for the next 6 years (yeah right), it will cost me $526.50 to watch all 39 movies. This doesn't consider inflation, rising ticket prices, 3D, or IMAX screening.
- If the average budget for these films is $170 million, it will cost at least $6.6 billion dollars to make all 39 movies. This does not factor in the larger movies like The Avengers or The Justice League or the marketing costs, which can be substantial.
- Marvel Studios made $7 billion from 10 films. If averages hold that would be $11 billion in box office. Which would be enough to bank roll the production and marketing of all the superhero movies of FOX, Sony, and Warner Bros. combined.
At some point, the superhero box office bubble will pop. But until then we have a lot great movies to look forward to.
