There were a total of 83,871 on-screen fatalities in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy (USA, 2014). The mammoth death toll is boosted by the inclusion of the entire Nova Corps on the casualty list.

Man of Steel (USA/CAN/UK, 2013) sees massive loss of life in Metropolis and Smallville, but also the death of every living thing on the planet Krypton. Its destruction also features in Superman (USA/UK, 1978). If Krypton is comparable to Earth in terms of variety and abundance of life, then the individual death toll of that film is incalculable; but could be equivalent to 1 trillion species.
