Stan Lee Is Now The Highest-Grossing Movie Producer Of All Time At Domestic Box Office


While most people might have expected names like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, or even Michael Bay to be atop the highest-grossing movie producers list, Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee stands above them all.

With the success of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Stan Lee has become the highest-grossing movie producer of all time at the domestic box office. Avengers: Age of Ultron has grossed $413 million at the domestic box office, pushing the total domestic gross of films where Stan Lee has served as a producer to $6.8 billion.

To take the top spot, Lee passed by Steven Spielberg, who has been a producer on movies with a total gross of $6.76 billion. Lee also ranks above Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy ($5.4 billion), Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige (5.3 billion), and Legendary Pictures' Thomas Tull ($4.7 billion).


If Lee will finish the year atop the highest-grossing producers list remains to be seen, as Jurassic World will likely push Spielberg back on top in June. However, Lee could retake the lead again when Ant-Man gets released in July.
