*Some notes: This list is correct at the date of publication. Amounts are in USD$. The totals are the worldwide box office grosses, adjusted using today's ticket prices so the comparisons are fair. This list only includes live action films - not animated series. All films chosen were based on originating in Marvel and DC Comics, not just made by DC and Marvel studios - hence Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox's inclusion.
