"Endgame" had taken in $2,789.2 billion worldwide - $500,000l less than "Avatar".
Will Avengers: Endgame be able to hold on to the box office crown for long?
Marvel Studios’ Blade Will Be in Phase 5 or Later
Reportedly, Angelina Jolie confirmed her role in The Eternals during the Marvel panel at Comic-Con in San Diego. However, Marvel did not mention any plans for Avengers 5 or any other Avengers movies for that matter.
"Endgame" dethroned "Avatar" to become the world's highest-grossing film of all time. Also, domestically in North America, Avengers: Endgame is No. 2 to Star Wars: The Force Awakens by around $80 million.
Avengers: Endgame shattered records when it opened day-and-date April 26 with $1,223.6M globally, including $357.1M and $866.5M internationally. They continued, "We can't wait to see where you take us next..." perhaps referring to the *four* Avatar sequels on which Cameron is working.
We must get past the point of reporting "firsts" in Hollywood diversity - I am more than happy Marvel is finally making the right moves to dispense with it.
"Avengers: Endgame" had its dark moments but it was nearly a whole lot darker.
Endgame was the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's "Infinity Saga", the 22nd movie in a franchise. In addition, it has also added "Avatar" to its collection after acquiring 21st Century Fox assets, which includes the film's producer and distributor 20th Century Fox, for $52.4 billion in March this year. The film collected $185 million, according to Box Office Mojo, and set a record opening weekend for July, unseating 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.' The Lion King's global tally now totals $531 million.
