Avengers: Endgame Finally Beats Avatar Box Office Record
Avengers Endgame dethrones Avatar to become the biggest film at the global box-office
Its a time to celebrate for Avengers: Endgame fans. The MCU film has finally surpassed James Cameron’s Avatar’s global box office total. Endgame was re-released in select markets by Marvel Studios to chiefly promote Spider-Man: Far From Home. After ‘Avatar’s’ impressive 10-year reign as box office champion, ‘Avengers: Endgame’ has officially dethroned the sci-fi epic to become the biggest movie of all time.
The news was announced by Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige himself at the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con 2019. Kevin Feige on Saturday took to the stage at the hallowed Hall H of the San Diego Comic-Con, to announce that Avengers: Endgame had become the highest-grossing film of all time. He also thanked fans who’d stuck with the franchise for over a decade and helped push Endgame’s worldwide gross ahead of James Cameron’s Avatar.
