    5 Reasons Why Marvel Studios Is Having Its Biggest Year Ever

    At a time when many blockbuster franchises are sputtering — the domestic gross for this year’s “Pirates of Caribbean” sequel fell 29 percent from the last installment’s, while “Transformers: The Last Knight” fell a staggering 47 percent — the Marvel Cinematic Universe has continued to dominate at the box office. This weekend, the 17th film in the series, “Thor: Ragnarok,” earned the biggest opening at the box office in two months: a $121 million domestic start and a running global total of $427 million. With that result, the MCU has now made $5 billion in lifetime domestic grosses — and $13 billion worldwide since “Iron Man” launched the series nearly a decade ago.
