Hello, everybody.

Would you teach me the meaning of "Beast of cinema"? Here is the link : (Captain America actor to 'retire' from role) (It is a BBC news article.)

The Marvel Cinematic Universe - or MCU as it's also known - has been an absolute beast of cinema since it began with the first Iron Man film in 2008.

Thank you.

    Here, "giant" or "monster" could have also been used, due to their popularity, influence, and enormous earnings. "Beast" is just a popular choice in BE, possibly more than in AE, in such contexts.
