What's next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Posted May 16, 2018

As of right now, there's two female hero-centric Marvel films in production - Captain Marvel and a Black Widow centred movie - and it sounds like we can add one more character to that list under the name of Ms. Marvel.

A lot of fans across the globe were waiting for Avengers: Infinity War, which released on April 27 worldwide.

Warning: Some mild Avengers: Infinity War spoiler allusions are below. It continues to set records, as its global tally of about $1.608 billion makes it the highest-grossing superhero film at the worldwide box office.

With these opening weekend numbers, AIW has already surpassed Marvel's previous best finishes including Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Iron Man 3 and Doctor Strange.

Assuming that Thanos' Infinity snap didn't accidentally bring a few people back to life, one would imagine that either Quicksilver's possible return in Avengers 4 is either due to a different type of resurrection or that we're seeing him in a different capacity. It's going to pass "Jurassic World" at No. 4.

Now, AIW is the fifth highest-grossing film of all-time in global markets, only behind Avatar ($2.02 billion), Titanic ($1.52 billion), Furious 7 ($1.16 billion), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($1.13 billion).

"Infinity War" is now poised to pass 2015's "Jurassic World" ($1.67 billion) and take a real run at joining "Avatar", "Titanic" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" as the only movies to cross the $2 billion mark.

The Disney/Marvel blockbuster is now also the top film of 2018, surpassing Black Panther's earnings of $9.7 million. It crossed the big billion-dollar threshold in record time, and it looks like Deadpool 2 is eyeing a solid opening weekend for itself.
