The mighty Asgardian has pulled in more money internationally than the Adamantium wielderand the Princess of Themyscira
As the highest-rated Marvel movie since MCU started in 2008, it looks like Ragnarok has the “spark” to keep the Thor series alive. Fans knew that Taika Waititi’s movie was ruling the roost for a second week at the box office, but it has become clear that even in 2017’s superhero-saturated market, Ragnarok will be one of the year’s biggest comic book movies.
According to statistics, Ragnarok secured $438 million internationally in three weeks. In comparison, James Mangold’s Logan made an impressive $391 million, and Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman lassoed $409 during the international runs. Domestically, Ragnarok falls behind the predecessors as the 9th highest-grossing movie of 2017, but it will not be long before the hero moves up toward other MCU favorites like Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
While Ragnarok‘s $650 million worldwide total has overtaken Logan‘s net of $616.8 million, the man from Asgard is still a way off Wonder Woman‘s $821.8 million.
Whether it is Waititi’s lighter touch to the franchise, big-name like Cate Blanchett and Jeff Goldblum, or something a little different from the House of Mouse, Ragnarok has the magic to keep the winning streak going. Disney noted that Ragnarok is tracking at 12 percent more than Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was at this point and 21 percent ahead of Doctor Strange. As MCU seems to be getting bigger, surely this is a good sign for next year’s Avengers: Infinity War.
Our latest adventure with the Norse gods may be nowhere near the surpassing Beauty and the Beast domestically, internationally, or worldwide, but Thor: Ragnarok is on track. Further amping that 2017 is the year of the superhero, Disney and Warner Bros. have been raking it in with Marvel and DC movies.
