As much as Marvel’s major heroes-skating exhibition is “Joker” probably not write more, at one point leaves Todd Phillips character drama not only “Avengers: Endgame”, but also all the other comic book movies behind …

“Dead Pool 2” was until recently the most successful R-rated film of all time. And then “Joker” came and left the so-called “Merc With A Mouth” look really old. The 785 million US dollars of the cheeky comic book movie has Todd Phillips’ Venice winner in any case almost obsolete playful.

And the film he comes thus from the throne, probably have very few on the list …

“Joker” obsolete “The Mask,” “Venom” & Co.

Judging by the cost of production “The Mask” the greatest profit tossed among the comic book adaptations so far from: The cult film starring Jim Carrey played in 1994 “only” 351 million US dollars one, cost contrary to the new record holder but also significantly less (23 million Dollar).

What about the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

That we do not find the current Marvel productions in the ranking is not surprising. Even the “cheaper” films of the saga such as “Ant-Man” devoured at least cost of 130 million dollars. The there is indeed still recorded properly mega successful were ultimately but especially highlights that just were also the most expensive by far.

“Avengers 3: Infinity War”: The Beginning of the End of Infinity Saga played worldwide over two billion dollars, swallowed but also vast amounts of money. Between 300 and 400 million dollars invested in the spectacle makers to Iron Man, Captain America and Co.

“Avengers 4: Endgame”: “Endgame” like a box office earnings of 2.798 billion US dollars to be indeed the most successful film of all time, with a budget of 356 million US dollars, he is but also one of the most expensive – and therefore also not the most profitable comic adaptations.
