Which Marvel Movies Are Not Disney?

Marvel movies have become some of the most popular and profitable films in recent years. However, with Disney acquiring Marvel in 2009, many people assume that all Marvel movies are Disney productions.

In reality, there are a few Marvel movies that were released before the acquisition and a few that were produced by other studios. Here is a list of Marvel movies that are not Disney productions.

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

The Incredible Hulk was released in 2008 and starred Edward Norton as Bruce Banner/Hulk. The movie was distributed by Universal Pictures and produced by Marvel Studios. Although it is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), it is not considered a Disney production.

X-Men Series

The X-Men series includes several films that were produced by 20th Century Fox before the studio was acquired by Disney in 2019. These films include X-Men (2000), X2: X-Men United (2003), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), X-Men: First Class (2011), The Wolverine (2013), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), Deadpool (2016), Logan (2017), and Deadpool 2 (2018).

Spider-Man Series

Spider-Man has had several film adaptations over the years, with some produced by Sony Pictures and others produced by Marvel Studios. The Spider-Man films that are not part of the MCU include Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004), Spider-Man 3 (2007), The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014). These films were produced solely by Sony Pictures.

Fantastic Four Series

The Fantastic Four series includes two films that were produced before Disney acquired Marvel: Fantastic Four (2005) and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007). These films were produced by 20th Century Fox.


While Disney has acquired Marvel and has produced many of the recent Marvel movies, there are still a few films that were produced by other studios. These include The Incredible Hulk, the X-Men series, the Spider-Man series, and the Fantastic Four series. It’s important to note that Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox in 2019 means that future X-Men and Fantastic Four films will likely be produced by Disney.
