Here’s what The Avengers would look like if they were cast in the ’90s

Mark Ruffalo says we’re going to get ‘a lot more Hulk’ in Thor: Ragnarok

After raking in over a billion dollars at the box office and receiving near-universal praise from critics, it’s hard to deny that Captain America: Civil War was a massive success for Marvel.

But don’t worry, Hulk fans — the Green Goliath can’t be held back for long.

‘Captain America: Civil War Reenactors’ is the funniest thing you’ll see all week

The fandom surrounding comic book movies is as intense as any fandom on the planet. Captain America: Civil War has taken Marvel’s total box office haul over $10 billion while the DC hopeful and the Marvel faithful have been going at it ever since Batman v Superman was pilloried by critics all around the world.

But all the intensity surrounding these movies might have been worth it, just so we could see Funny Or Die’s Captain America: Civil War Reenactors.

The 5 biggest ways Captain America: Civil War failed

Marvel’s latest superhero flick Captain America: Civil War had another monster run at the box office this past weekend. The film hauled in $72.6 million domestically and added another $84.2 million abroad, driving its global box office gross past the $940 million mark. Cap’s latest adventure is set to surpass $1 billion this week, and it has already pushed Marvel’s cinematic universe past $10 billion in total box office sales.

Civil War has been praised by critics and fans alike, having managed a 90% critic score and a 91% fan rating on popular movie site Rotten Tomatoes. But nothing is perfect, of course, and Captain America’s latest film has some pretty big holes that have left fans scratching their heads. More →

Captain America: Civil War pushes Marvel past $10 billion at the box office

Marvel’s latest superhero adventure is on pace to be one of the studio’s biggest to date, having now racked up more than $940 million globally at the box office. Captain America: Civil War pulled in $72.6 million in the United States alone this past weekend, its second weekend in theaters. Globally, the film took in more than $156 million total this past weekend.

Civil War is currently on pace to see its box office total top $1 billion this week, which will be yet another impressive milestone for the film. Perhaps even more impressive, however, is the milestone Marvel has already achieved: As of this past Sunday, Marvel’s 13 movies have now combined to pull in more than $10 billion. More →

A video of DC’s biggest mistakes shows why they might never catch up with Marvel

Marvel and DC have competed at comic book shops and newsstands for decades, but the stakes are higher than ever as the two brands compete at the box office.

With marketing and promotion included, the production budget of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was likely north of $400 million, which makes its impressive $860 million worldwide haul slightly less impressive. But failing to hit $1 billion isn’t the biggest mistake DC has ever made.

In fact, it’s not even close.
