The Shadow had the best costume. Somehow Alec Baldwin with a fake nose and hankerchief around his mouth looks ****ing badass.

Intrestingly (or not), none of the above films are based on comicbooks. The Phantom and Dick Tracy are comic strips from newspapers, Rocketeer was a graphic novel, and The Shadow was a radio show.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 grossed $709m, Spider-Man: Homecoming grossed $880m. Somehow a 19% increase is the difference between a huge failure and another victory for Marvel Studios.
