Marvel Studios: The MCU, The Mainstream's Favorite Franchise?


According to a survey in the United States, MCU films are among the most popular franchises.

When we talk about franchises or even superhero movies, it's difficult to see impossible not to mention Marvel Studios . For many, the MCU serves as an example to follow, a magic recipe for the best success in expanding a cinematic universe. It is clear that the method worked, since Avengers Endgame , one of the last blockbusters to date, is is hoisted to the first place of the ranking of films having the most grossings at the box office around the world. However, is the MCU really the mainstream favorite franchise? This would at least be the case in the United States, the birthplace of most of the heroes of comic books adapted for the big screen.

The National Research Group, a consulting firm specializing in technology and entertainment, has indeed carried out a survey, for which they questioned more than 20 000 people across the United States, regarding nearly 700 franchises different. They thus asked the participants what was according to them the franchise “the most daring, inspiring and making the most thought” . The top 20, that you can discover above, has no less than 8 MCU films, with in mind Avengers , Black Panther and Guardians of the Galaxy . It remains to be seen whether these results obtained in the United States could apply to the rest of the world. Nothing is certain, but given the worldwide and unprecedented success of Marvel Studios films, we imagine that at least one MCU film could end up in the top 5. Another franchise stamped Disney and present in the highest place of the classification, the series The Mandalorian , whose season 2 is currently airing on Disney .
