The Marvel Cinematic Universe scored another huge box-office win over the weekend, with “Avengers: Endgame” breaking several records. For starters, it made an unprecedented $1.2 billion worldwide in just five days.

But how do the other 21 MCU movies so far stack up?

The franchise got off to somewhat of a rocky start, with its earliest movies – like “Thor,” “Captain America: The First Avengers,” and “The Incredible Hulk” – nowhere close to the kind of money they make now.

We ranked them based on their US opening weekend box office adjusted for inflation.
