Doctor Strange Becomes Marvel’s Highest Grossing Character Introduction Film

Congrats Doc!

As reported by Deadline, Marvel’s Doctor Strange starring Benedict Cumberbatch, which came to theaters earlier this month, has just grossed over USD $600 million. As of November 27th, the current tally is sitting around USD $616 million.

Breaking this number down, Doctor Strange has seen USD $410.9 million in international sales and USD $205.1 million in domestic sales. These figures put Doctor Strange among the top grossing movies of the year.


Domestically, in the rankings Doctor Strange is behind Suicide Squad, which has the 8th spot of the year, with a gross in excess of USD $320 million. So, Doctor Strange still has a ways to go if it’s going to be even more financially successful than DC’s superhero ensemble.

While Marvel is no slouch when it comes to big box office numbers, Doctor Strange has already managed to cumulatively surpass Marvel’s other financially successful character introductions like Iron Man (USD $266 million), Iron Man 2 (USD $310 million), Thor (USD $268 million), and Ant-Man (USD $339 million).

Critically the film has largely been a success as well, with a Metacritic score of 72 (indicating “generally favorable reviews”). The film has been especially a success with fans critics alike when compared to DC’s films this year, Batman v Superman (a 44 on Metacritic) and Suicide Squad (a 40 on Metacritic).
