Whether you like it or not, superhero movies run the world right now. Ever since the turn of the century, they have been getting more and more popular, and this all came to a culmination last year when Avengers: Endgame became the most successful movie of all time.

The franchise have spanned 23 films and 11 years, crossing over characters and plot-lines, re-introducing us to some iconic comic superheroes, including Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk and Black Panther.

Of course, Marvel Studios aren't the only ones to have made movies about the Marvel Universe. Before they were bought by Disney, Fox were behind a massively successful X-Men franchise (and a few not so successful efforts in Daredevil, Elektra, and three Fantastic Four movies).
