Top 10 Highest Grossing Superhero Movies of All Time

Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past few years, underwater, and with a poor Wi-Fi connection, it can’t have escaped your attention that super hero films have become kind of a big deal.

From the moody realism of Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, to the hugely ambitious, interconnected world that has been built by Marvel over the past few years, and DC beginning to put together their very own movie universe, it seems there’s never been a better time to be a fan of heroes on the big screen.

Naturally, with films like Age of Ultron and Batman V Superman very soon on their way into theatres to inevitably hoover up ridiculous amounts of cash straight from people’s pockets in the box office, we thought it was time to take a step back, and see what the best performing super hero flicks have been thus far.

10. Iron Man 2: $314.2 Million


Regarded by many as the weakest Marvel film (seriously… nothing happens for the first hour) Iron Man 2 still did pretty damn well. Presumably because of Marvel’s not so secret weapon; Robert Downey Jr.

9. Iron Man $318.4 Million

It’s mad to think that not that long ago, there weren’t many folk outside of the Marvel hardcore that even knew who Iron Man was. But thanks to one awesome film and a charm offensive from RDJ, we were given the start of a sprawling, beloved universe. Iron Man himself is now probably Marvel’s most popular hero, even beating former glory boy Spider-Man.
