Stan Lee is gone, but he would be proud of what the Russo brothers did to his marvel empire.
This past weekend Marvel Studios broke another record previously held by them. Over the last 10 years, all 21 films under the company have been leading up to Avengers Endgame. Plenty of storylines references and questions were all revealed by the end of the 3-hour movie. The final installment of the series scored 96% from Rotten Tomatoes.
Avengers Endgame Box Office
Avengers Endgame managed to rake in $1.2 billion globally with its debut. It topped the previous record with “Avengers: Infinity War” by $560 million worldwide. The star-studded cast includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlet Johansson. In addition, Jeremey Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gilan, Dana Gurira, Bradley Cooper, Samuel L. Jackson, and Josh Brolin.
“The Avengers, by assembling the biggest movie debut in history, have proven that another of their superpowers is the ability to knock several percentage points off the year-to-date deficit,” Dergarabedian said. “‘Endgame’ has truly started the momentum rolling on potentially the biggest revenue generating summer (and year) in box office history.”
Endgame broke another record in the world of IMAX. The opening took in $91.5 million. This beat out “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.
“Kevin Feige and the Marvel Studios team have continued to challenge notions of what is possible at the movie theatre both in terms of storytelling and at the box office,” said Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn. “Though ‘Endgame’ is far from an end for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, these first 22 films constitute a sprawling achievement, and this weekend’s monumental success is a testament to the world they’ve envisioned, the talent involved, and their collective passion, matched by the irrepressible enthusiasm of fans around the world.”
