MCU’s Avengers: Endgame has officially passed Avatar to become the second-highest grossing movie ever at the domestic box office. The movie’s domestic box office total is at $780 million. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still the highest-grossing movie of all time at the domestic box office, and its figure is $936.6 million.
Avengers: Endgame is the second-highest grossing film ever and has earned $2.56 billion globally, and also surpassed James Cameron’s movie, Titanic. When it comes to the worldwide box office, Endgame trails Avatar’s $2.78 billion by $224 million.
“Kevin Feige and the Marvel Studios team have continued to challenge notions of what is possible at the movie theatre both in terms of storytelling and at the box office,” Alan Horn, the chairman of Walt Disney Studios said.
“Though Endgame is far from an end for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, these first 22 films constitute a sprawling achievement, and this weekend’s monumental success is a testament to the world they’ve envisioned, the talent involved, and their collective passion, matched by the irrepressible enthusiasm of fans around the world.”
“From the very beginning with Iron Man, all we’ve wanted to do was tell stories that brought these characters to life on screen the way we’ve experienced them as fans of the comics,” Kevin Feige said.
“That we’ve had so many other successes in this journey leading to this unbelievable result with Avengers: Endgame has been almost entirely due to the fans around the world who have supported us through it all. Our directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, and our writers, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, really brought this story home, and I am also incredibly thankful for our cast and filmmakers from across the MCU and all who’ve worked so hard to make these films the best they can be, including the amazing teams at Marvel Studios and Disney. And of course, without Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, none of this would have been possible.”
“We poured our heart and soul into Avengers: Endgame, hoping to tell a story that would inspire audiences around the world. Our family of cast and crew felt honoured to be entrusted with bringing the Infinity Saga to a close. To Kevin Feige, everyone at Disney and Marvel, and the incredible, global community of fans – thank you,” Anthony and Joe Russo added.
Avengers: Endgame is now playing in theatres. Captain Marvel is also still playing in theatres. Upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies include Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5th.
