Christ.

It's Marvel's world, and we just pay a lot of money to live in it.

Okay, you know the drill by now.

Avengers: Endgame is a really big deal.

So much so that people have been physically assaulted for deciding to yell out some major spoilers outside of a cinema.

Do not do that. And don't post them online, either. Spoiling things isn't cool.

So yeah, if you're reading this, there's a pretty big chance that you caught Endgame in the past few days.

We have the data. Not on you, specifically, but the box office receipts tell a pretty colossal story.

Variety confirms that the final chapter in the Avengers saga - for a bit, anyway - has raked in an astonishing $1.2 billion in its opening weekend, becoming the first movie in history to come anywhere close to such a staggering return.

That number again; $1.2 billion.

Yeesh. For the record, Avatar is still the highest-grossing film of all time on a cool $2.788 billion.

Avengers: Infinity War took home $2.048 billion, all told.

Now remember that Endgame is out just a handful of days as of this point.

The numbers read thus; $350 million domestic in North America, $1.2 billion overall globally. $330.5 million of the worldwide take came from China.

More powerful than Thanos wielding the Infinity Gauntlet, essentially.

For contrast, Infinity War opened to a total of $640.5 million and took 11 days to reach the billion mark.

That's kind of terrifying, all things considered.

“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 Walt 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."

Death, taxes, and a new Marvel movie every couple of years.
