Marvel Studios has been one of the greatest success stories in all of cinema since launching its first film, Iron Man, in 2008. Under the leadership of studio president and producer Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios has amassed $10.9 billion worldwide (and counting) in just under nine years. Marvel Studios has set the standard for serialized, shared universe storytelling in movies with just about every other studio trying to play catch-up. The gap, however, is set to grow even wider as Marvel Studios prepares to have its biggest and possibly best year ever in 2017.
This year will be the first in which Marvel will release more than two films with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in May, Spider-Man: Homecoming in July, and Thor: Ragnarok in November. In terms of the sheer quantity of movies released, 2017 will set a record for Marvel Studios and give the studio an inside track to break some its own box office records. Even with three films, though, breaking those records won’t come quite as easily as shouting “HULK SMASH!”
