It’s Now Official – ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is The Highest-Grossing Film Of All Time!

Kevin Feige from Marvel announced at Comic-Con panel that Marvel’s biggest hit, ‘Avengers: Endgame’, is about to become the most grossing movie of all time, passing Avatar’s record of $2.7897 billion global box office that was set 9 years ago.

There is still a small gap of 500k USD but it should be closed in a day or two.

Kevin announced in the Marvel panel – “Thanks to you, Avengers: Endgame is the biggest film of all-time”.

Marvel (powered by Disney) add few deleted scenes on June 28th – a post-credit scene, Hulk sequence and a Stan Lee tribute. All of these came when ‘EndGame’ was trailing by 37 million dollars behind Avatar and even people at Disney couldn’t believe that adding those scenes will get them past Avater, but it eventually did.

The directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, shared their thoughts about beating Avatar and they said – “The fact that people have responded to Endgame this way and they’ve been following these characters for so long, it’s cathartic for us to see in that the storytelling has played out globally. James Cameron is an idol for us, and he’s fed our passion for filmmaking from the beginning”

It’s really surprising to find out that there were only 5 movies that have been past the 2 billion marks at the global box office, and 4 of them are shared by Cameron (the director of Avatar) and the Russo brothers (the directors of The Avengers) –

  1. Avengers: Endgame – Joe and Anthony Russo
  2. Avatar – James Cameron
  3. Titanic – James Cameron
  4. Star Wars: The Force Awakens – J.J. Abrams
  5. Avengers: Infinity War – Joe and Anthony Russo

The Walt Disney Studios’ co-chairman and chief creative officer, Alan Horn said: “A huge congratulations to the Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios teams, and thank you to the fans around the world who lifted Avengers: Endgame to these historic heights. Of course, even with the passage of a decade, the impact of James Cameron’s Avatar remains as powerful as ever, and the astonishing achievements of both of these films are ongoing proof of the power of movies to move people and bring them together in a shared experience. The talented filmmakers behind these worlds have much more in store, and we look forward to the future of both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Pandora.”

But it’s not the real endgame – Disney will release Avatar 2, directed by Cameron of course, on December 2021.
