As the heroes prepare to assemble, we look back on previous films
'nuff said: Another lesser-known Marvel hero, the blind attorney-turned-vigilante Daredevil (Ben Affleck), made it to the big screen with mixed results. Anti-heroine Elektra (Jennifer Garner) was granted her own movie, and future "Iron Man" helmer Jon Favreau pops up as Matt Murdock's buddy Foggy Nelson. Not a runaway hit, plans for a re-boot are in motion.
Worldwide box office: $179 million
