It’s official, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Endgame” is officially the highest-grossing film of all time at the worldwide box-office. Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, has confirmed the news that James Cameron’s 2009 “Avatar” has been dethroned at this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con.
As we all know, “Avengers: Endgame” was the epic finale all Marvel fans were dreaming about for the past decade. And it seems its finale was so epic, it made the film the highest-grossing of all time.
On stage at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Kevin Feige spoke on the major accomplishment for Marvel Studios, saying: “Thanks to you, Avengers: Endgame is the biggest film of all-time.” In its initial release, the film climbed well over $2 billion at the box-office. However, it still sat $37 million behind “Avatar.”
But, thanks to a re-release of the film on June 28, which featured a deleted Hulk sequence, a Stan Lee tribute and a post-credits scene featuring characters from “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” the film was able to climb all the way to the top spot! According to Deadline, it’s believed that most of the $37 million came from offshore markets.
Now that “Avengers: Endgame” has set this incredible feat for the company, it’s exciting to think about what’s next for Marvel fans. As we all know, the company just revealed its next lineup of films coming in Marvel Studios’ Phase 4. During this release, it was revealed that the company has plans for films such as “Black Widow,” “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” “Thor: Love and Thunder” and much more!
