Default What MCU non-Avengers team has the biggest box office potential?

Yes it would be a distant second but what is Marvel Studios potentially biggest non-Avenger franchise?

I think a Thunderbolts film with major villains of different heroes could be really cool. A reverse Avengers type film, I could see Runaways due to the teen stuff but I don't know.

Maybe the Midnight Sons. Perhaps the Defenders due to Hulk.

While I love the idea of a Midnight Sons, I can't see it being a box-office hit.

I didn't think of Heroes for Hire, but yeah, HFH definitely has box office potential.

Of the teams listed, I'd say Runaways has the best box office, because of the teen demographic.

The Defenders. The potential of that team is almost as big as The Avengers themselves.
Dr. Strange, Hulk, Daredevil and two or three c-listers...

I agree to an extent.

I can see a Dr. Strange, Hulk, and Namor team up pulling in 500-700 m WW.

Runaways I can see doing 400-600 m WW.

Inhumans, Guardians of the Galaxy, Heroes for Hire, etc I would expect 350-450 m WW.

So yeah, Defenders is top dog after Avengers.

I also think Thunderbolts could be big if they can tie it into the Avengers series somehow.

400-600 m WW.

A group of super-powered teens on the run from their evil parents - this would be a huge hit even without the MCU tie ins.

I think Runaways would do solid #s. Out of all the teams on the list I'd prefer to see that.

Alot of the other teams have members of the Avengers attached so depending on their roster, most could have huge box office.

I'd rather see Inhumans, but Runaways would target the young adult Harry Potter/Hunger Games/even Twilight demo

Not much there for the GA draw. Best option may be a Heroes For Hire, but that seems much better suited to TV. I believe if Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a success, it may pave the road for future TV serials and HfH may be on that list.

As it stands, the best teams are already on the screen; for MCU The Avengers; Fox has X-Men and Fantastic Four. That's about it for a mainstream/GA draw.

****edit*****

I forgot, there is one team that has tremendous potential if marketed and written properly.....Alpha Flight.

I agree with that.

In terms of superhero teams of Marvel - X-Men, Fantastic Four and Avengers are their most marketable and I feel like they are the only superhero teams that could draw a lot of people.

And I don't believe this "look at Iron Man's success" argument. Even if Iron Man wasn't an A-list superhero to casual audience before his movie was released, he's definitely an A-list property to Marvel Comics. I don't think I can say that to Guardians of the Galaxy, Inhumans, Runaways, Thunderbolts.

Iron Man still doesn't sell that much comics even with #1 films. Guardians 1 sold twice as much as his.

Can't wait till GOTG comes out so this debate on new properties being successful can end.

It's dumb as hell to begin with. It's the same as saying any new movie property can't be successful because people don't know about it.

Watchmen, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, The Losers say hello.

And about The Defenders, they could just include them in an Avengers movie. They don't have to headline a movie called "The Defenders".

Watchmen made practically 200m WW with a divisive crowd and R rating. And the other two you mentioned were regarded as being bad films with under 50% approval ratings and not having strong marketting in general. And sometimes even the badly reviewed ones make money, Green Hornet and Ghost Rider made cash.

Blade, The Crow, Kick Ass, Sin City, 300, Chronicle (I know its not an adaptation but its a new super power movie), Hancock, Iron Man and Hellboy all did fine. If a movie looks cool and marketting does their job and makes the audience aware, then people will see it.
