Captain America: Civil War has become 2016's highest-grossing movie at the US box office, overtaking Deadpool in the process!
Deadpool exceeded all expectations by becoming the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time, and then became the highest-grossing X-Men movie ever. If that wasn't enough for Ryan Reynolds and all other people involved in the project, it became 2016's highest-grossing movie at the US box office. But now it seems that Deadpool has to scratch that one off its trophy list because Civil War came, saw and conquered. Captain America: Civil War has been a huge money spinner for Marvel. Civil War already broke $1 billion worldwide, but it was still lagging behind Deadpool slightly at the US box office. But not anymore! According to Box Office Mojo, the Russo brothers' Marvel movie made $372.6 million in the US, compared to Deadpool's $362.7 million.
With the added revenue from Captain America: Civil War, the MCU has now made over $10 billion in total. So that's 13 films all together: Iron Man (2008), The Incredible Hulk (2008), Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011), Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), The Avengers (2012), Iron Man 3 (2013), Thor: The Dark World (2013), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Ant-Man (2015), and last, but certainly not least, Captain America: Civil War (2016). Can you believe that Marvel has already made 13 films since 2008? They're now releasing two films a year so it seems that we'll never be lacking in the superhero blockbuster department. Captain America: Civil War has hit the jackpot with it receiving both critical and commercial success. It's also been a huge hit with the fans! We loved it too. Did you enjoy Captain America: Civil War as much as we did?
