As noted on Pandya’s Twitter, Black Panther came out on top with a gross of $700.1 million, beating out Avengers: Infinity War, which ended up earning $678.8 million. Other superhero-themed films on the list include Incredibles 2, Deadpool 2, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Aquaman, and Venom.
The only non-hero movies to make the list were The Grinch, Mission: Impossible–Fallout, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.
It seems 2019 is suiting up to once again heavily feature superheroes. The MCU will release Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home, while DC will release Shazam!, and Fox presents X-Men: Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants.
