List of all 54 Marvel movies by release date, movie studio (timeline 2000-2020)

March 1, 2016 - Comic Books / Movies

Marvel has been killing it on the big screen. After decades of laughable movie adaptations of their most-beloved comic book superheros, Marvel has turned it around in a big way.

.

Since the turn of the century, movie studios such as Marvel, Fox and Sony have translated superheros such as Spiderman, Captain America, The X-Men and Iron Man into some of the most successful (and bankable) movie franchises.

Even with all that, it wasn’t easy to find a full list of Marvel movies that have come out in the modern era of superhero films. Since Marvel sold off the rights to many of their characters when the company was struggling, many of the timelines of upcoming Marvel movies were based on the 4-6 studios that owned them and the marketing follows along those battle lines.

It’s an odd, “We want you to do well, but only because we want to do well when our movie comes out.”

.

Being a Marvel fanboy through-and-through, I wanted to put together a comprehensive timeline of all the Marvel movies since 2000 including past, present and the upcoming comic book films featuring Marvel characters. You can sort the list below by release date (default), name of the movie, or Rotten Tomatoes score (fun!) — just hover over the headings and click the arrows.

*I’m a huge X-Men fan so was excited to see how they interpreted Gambit, but dislike Channing Tatum so much that I’m more excited about them delaying it (and hopefully finding an actor that fanboys actually like)

.

No doubt Marvel has found a formula for success (except for the Fantastic Four franchise — sheesh) with many of their heavy hitters — Thor, Iron Man, X-Men, Captain America, Spiderman, Wolverine and the Avengers — not only raking in the dough but also receiving (mostly) favorable reviews from critics.

This has opened the doors for quirkier characters to step up into the spotlight. Most recently the success of secondary and tertiary characters like Deadpool, Ant-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy gives room for the studios to take bigger risks on more of the same: Who would have thought that we’d have movies for The Black Panther, Doctor Stranger, Gambit and The Inhumans 15 years ago.

In 15 more years, we’ll be talking about the upcoming Neosonic Teenage Warhead film.
