In the final hours of 2018, let’s look back on the best year ever for Marvel Studios. Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War dominated the box office and the pop culture landscape. The Disney-Fox deal was threatened but prevailed and the Marvel/Netflix partnership deteriorated, all while Marvel Studios released its 20th movie (Ant-Man and the Wasp), celebrated its 10-year anniversary, and earned $4B at the global box office. Sadly, 2018 was also the year we said “So long and Excelsior” to the legendary Stan Lee.
