That's $12 billion (and counting) from 16 films, released over a span of nine years. Of those features, four have cracked the $1-billion mark, led by The Avengers with a worldwide total of $1.5 billion. That 2012 film is followed by Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.4 billion), Iron Man 3 ($1.2 billion), Captain America: Civil War ($1.15 billion) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($857.7 million).


It's worth pointing out that Spider-Man: Homecoming is already within striking distance of No. 15 in the Marvel chart, 2008's The Incredible Hulk, which ended its global run with $263.4 million.
