History in the making.
In less than two weeks (11 days), Avengers Endgame has grossed an unthinkable $2.188 billion, not only overtaking James Cameron’s Titanic ($2.187 billion) but also becoming the fastest movie in history to be inducted into the 2 billion club, joining the likes of Avengers: Infinity War, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Titanic, and Avatar.
Box office analysts were initially skeptical of Avengers Endgame‘s chances to overtake Avatar‘s $2.788 billion, but now it’s no longer a pipe dream, as Marvel Studios’ juggernaut only needs a little more than $600 million to take the crown and become the highest-grossing movie of all time.
If the current momentum continues in the next few weeks, it’s not stretch to believe that Avengers Endgame might even cross the mythical $3 billion line, of which no movie in history has ever been able to do. Think about that for a second.
However, it’s not going to be smooth sailing for Avengers Endgame in the coming weeks, with heavy competition from the likes of the highly-anticipated Detective Pikachu and John Wick 3 dropping very soon, not to mention Disney’s Aladdin and Godzilla: King of The Monsters later this month.
Nevertheless, as a comic book fan, I’m proud of how far comic book adaptations have come in such a short span of time. This is just the tip of the iceberg, folks. More is surely yet to come, and the golden age is just beginning.
