  • It joins seven other MCU movies to reach that milestone.

“Avengers: Endgame” is the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to hit a huge box-office milestone, and it did it in just five days.

“Endgame” grossed $1.2 billion worldwide in its opening, shattering records and expectations. In China, it broke the record for biggest opening day ever on Wednesday. “Endgame” also made a record $356 million in its domestic opening weekend, more than Disney’s initial estimate.

The movie joins seven other MCU movies that made over $1 billion (“Endgame” has already made more than three of them). “Captain Marvel” fought off online trolls, which launched a campaign to tank its Rotten Tomatoes audience score, to become a global phenomenon this year. That’s two Marvel movies to hit $1 billion this month.
