Seems like superhero films have been in decline for some time, and the year 2023 has been a testimony for the MCU – DC films that their superheroes need a booster pack urgently. From the lowest-earning DC film, Blue Beetle, at $129.28 million worldwide, to the lowest-earning MCU film, The Marvels, at $204.99 million worldwide, the figures have been bad.

This year has been a struggling year for the superheroes of the multiverses. Initially, when Marvel and DC launched their superheroes, it was a rampage. People had not seen something like this before. Despite the comic books, the superhero films were a golden discovery.

The declining love and eagerness for superhero films may be attributed to way too many reasons, and the primary one seems to be the overlapping multiverses. What the world witnessed with Avengers gradually started becoming a mess with overlapping timelines and realms and parallel Universes, making it an intense study and a topic of research rather than a cool sci-fi flick!

Apart from GOTG 3, nothing miraculously worked at the Box Office, and even that film had an emotional farewell value, just like the recently released Aquaman 2, which marks the end of DCEU.

MCU Superhero Films’s Box Office 2023

2023 saw three MCU superhero films in total. The year started with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and ended with The Marvels. The third release was Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which was by far the best out of the lot. In total, the three films collected around $1526.60 Million ($1.52 Billion) worldwide. This was much less compared to the $2577.89 Million ($2.57 Billion) earned worldwide by the MCU films last year.
