Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame has officially surpassed James Cameron’s Avatar as the highest-grossing film in history, topping the latter’s nine-year record of $2.7897 billion USD global box office with a $2.9 billion USD revenue as of July 21. President Kevin Feige confirmed the historical feat during the Marvel Studios‘ Comic-Con panel, saying, “Thanks to you, Avengers: Endgame is the biggest film of all-time.”
The news follows Endgame’s return to the big screen in late June, with Marvel adding a number of deleted scenes including a new Hulk sequence, a Stan Lee tribute and a post-credit scene with appearances from Spider-Man: Far From Home characters. The re-release helped Endgame fill the initial $37 million USD gap with Avatar.
In case you missed it, Marvel also unveiled its Phase 4 plans during its recent Comic-Con panel.
