Avengers: Endgame was a box office powerhouse when it released back in April, but despite its monster opening, the movie did not quite make it to the box office record from another monumental movie: director James Cameron's Avatar. According to Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, Kevin, however, with Disney announcing at San Diego Comic-Con that Endgame has overtaken Avatar's box office record.
There's a catch, though.
"I literally just heard from our folks at Disney Distribution that Avengers: Endgame wants to be the biggest film of all time, "Feige said during the Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con's Hall H." James Cameron – if you In hall h, Avengers: Endgame is the biggest movie of all time. "
That means that in straight numbers, Endgame has surpassed Avatar's total box office take of $ 2.78 billion. But as Feige mentioned, the world was different in 2009, when Avatar released, and inflation means that $ 2.78 billion was worth more than it is now.
You might recall that Disney and Marvel Studios worked pretty hard to get that record out of Cameron's hands. The company returned Endgame to theaters on June 28 so it could soak up even more money. Before his "farewell" tour, Endgame had raked only in $ 2.74 billion.
