Coming into 2017, Marvel Studios had never released more than two films in a single year. Putting out three films in one year was a new challenge for the studio, but they have answered it emphatically. Thor: Ragnarok will pass Wonder Woman ($821.8M) at the worldwide box office today (if it hasn’t already), so Marvel Studios’ three films will own all of the top three spots for superhero movies in 2017.
The impressive hat trick for Marvel Studios includes the current 2017 superhero champion, Spider-Man: Homecoming ($880.2M), followed by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($863.6M), and then Thor: Ragnarok. The third Thor film came into the day with $821M worldwide, but today’s domestic earnings and updated totals from the international box office will push it past Wonder Woman. Marvel Studios has now produced three of the year’s seven highest grossing movies, regardless of genre.
