  • Ghost in the Shell – Paramount Pictures Box Office: $4o m Domestic $169 m International.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2 – Disney/Marvel Box Office: $389 m Domestic $863 m

  • Thor Ragnarok – Disney/Marvel Box Office: Domestic $313 m International $851 m
  • Justice League – Warner Box Office: Domestic $227 m International $ 655 m
  • Star Wars – The Last Jedi (note: though this isn’t based on a comic book, it has been adapted as a comic book and Star Wars has been in comic book format almost steady since So, I’m including it here.) Disney/Lucasfilm. Box Office: Domestic – $604 m International – $1.2 Billion.

Bonus: A look at Female leads in comic book inspired movies through the years:

  1. Barbarella
  2. Supergirl
  3. Sheena: Queen of the Jungle
  4. Red Sonja
  5. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  6. Tank Girl
  7. Vampirella
  8. Barb Wire
  9. Tomb Raider
  10. Catwoman
  11. Elektra
  12. My Super Ex-Girlfriend

Two successful action/sci-fi movies with female leads were the Terminator and Alien franchises. These, however, weren’t based on comic books but were later adapted into comic book series from various companies including Now and Dark Horse. This could also include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, except that the comic book version was based on the TV series not the film of the same name. But I include it here as it was the inspiration for the show and comic book. I also include My Super Ex- Girlfriend, even though it was neither adapted from, nor turned into, a comic book. It was, however, inspired by comic books as a medium.
