Avengers: Endgame Crosses the $2 Billion Mark In Record Time
About a decade ago, Disney purchased Marvel for approximately $4 billion. That investment has continued to pay off with Avengers: Endgame, which just crossed another box office milestone.
Via Variety, Endgame has brought in $2 billion worldwide after only 11 days in theaters. By comparison, Avengers: Infinity War reached $1 billion in the same span of time last year. Besides Endgame and Infinity War, only three other films have managed to reach the $2 billion mark: Avatar, Titanic, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. By the end of the weekend, Endgame will likely pass Infinity War, The Force Awakens, and Titantic to become the new #2 behind Avatar.
Now, the question is simple: when can Endgame match or exceed the $2.78 billion record currently held by Avatar? That record seems likely to fall, but it’s not a certainty yet. Endgame‘s box office performance is bound to slow down at some point, especially as the other summer blockbusters finally arrive. But there’s still a chance that Endgame could climb even higher. It may even be the first movie to ever make $3 billion at the worldwide box office, if its popularity holds up.
Domestically, Endgame still has a long way to go before catching up to The Force Awakens‘ $936 million record. Currently, Endgame has made approximately $620 million in North America, which places it at number 9 on the all-time list.
