10. The Dark Knight Rises ($1.084B)
Many might say that The Dark Knight was the best film of Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, but that didn’t stop The Dark Knight Rises from edging it out at the box office. But just barely. If this were a top twenty list, The Dark Knight would come in at #19 with $1.004B, but given how much people were hyped for the third film, it was edged out. As it stands, Nolan’s films are among the highest grossing superhero movies ever, though you will find one or two ahead of Rises on the list here.
