If you’re a Marvel fan, you might be wondering which Marvel movies are not Disney. With the recent acquisition of Marvel by Disney in 2009, it’s easy to assume that all Marvel movies are now under the Disney umbrella.
However, that’s not entirely true. Let’s take a look at some of the Marvel movies that were made before and after the acquisition.
Pre-Disney Marvel Movies
Before Disney acquired Marvel, there were several Marvel movies that were made by other studios. Here are some examples:
- Blade (1998)
- X-Men (2000)
- Spider-Man (2002)
Blade is a vampire-themed action movie based on the comic book character of the same name. It was produced by New Line Cinema and starred Wesley Snipes as Blade.
X-Men was produced by 20th Century Fox and was one of the first successful superhero movies of its time.
It starred Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Professor X.
Spider-Man was directed by Sam Raimi and starred Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. It was produced by Columbia Pictures, which is owned by Sony.
Post-Disney Marvel Movies
After Disney acquired Marvel in 2009, they started producing their own Marvel movies under their banner. Here are some examples:
- The Avengers (2012)
- Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
- Black Panther (2018)
The Avengers brought together several characters from previous Marvel movies such as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Hulk to form a team to save Earth from an alien invasion. It was produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
Guardians of the Galaxy introduced a new set of characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot.
It was also produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
Black Panther was a groundbreaking movie for its representation of black culture and its all-black cast. It starred Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther and was produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
In conclusion, not all Marvel movies are under the Disney banner. There were several Marvel movies made before Disney acquired the company that were produced by other studios such as Sony and 20th Century Fox. However, since Disney acquired Marvel in 2009, they have been producing their own Marvel movies under their banner through their subsidiary company Marvel Studios.
