“Avengers: Infinity War” at the box office has crossed one more milestone. The blockbuster by Marvel Studios passed the mark of $2 Billion at the global box office this week at its 48th day in theaters. This was announced by Disney to the media in an interview. “Infinity War” joins just 3 other movies that reached the $2 Billion mark all over the worked: 1997’s “Titanic,” 2009’s “Avatar,” and 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”
All 3 of these movies were launched in December, which makes “Infinity War” the 1st movie launched beyond the holiday season to earn $2 Billion all over the world, when not adding for inflation.
The movie, starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and a range of superheroes, ranks 4th in the global list of top-grossing films. Disney has 2 of the leading 4 largest movies of all time.
Since being launched in late April, the superhero movie has broken various box office records. “Infinity War” grabbed a record $640 Million worldwide opening and crossed the mark for $1 Billion in a record 11 Days.
Disney has had a great year with its Marvel Studios brand due to the cultural phenomenon “Black Panther” and “Infinity War.” “Black Panther,” which was first of Marvel to have a predominantly African American cast and was directed by an African American, broke records of its own prior to making over $1.3 Billion all over the world.
Disney seems to repeat, or even perhaps exceed, the achievement of “Infinity War” when its follow-up “Avengers 4” releases on May 3, 2019, a little less than a year from now.
Speaking of “Avengers 4,” Benedict Cumberbatch has confirmed the return of Doctor Strange in “Avengers 4.” The Infinity War ended with most of the favorite superheroes dead. Doctor Strange was also one of them.
