But what if no one is actually dead? The Marvel Cinematic Universe is so deeply entrenched in mystical magic and science fiction that this isn’t too far of a leap to make. Read on to explore the Internet’s most convincing speculations about what happened to the supposedly fallen Avengers!
It seems like it was only yesterday when Marvel broke our hearts into itty-bitty pieces in Avengers: Infinity War, not unlike what became of half of the Avengers after Thanos’s snap. With the arrivals of Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel, we get closer to figuring out what’s going to unfold in Endgame. The widely anticipated movie will show the Avengers figuring out a way to bring back their friends and defeat Thanos once and for all. Which is to say, we’re going into the film with the assumption that Thanos wiped out half of the living population in the universe – that half of the superheroes we know and love are gone.
You’ll Drop Your Infinity Stones After Seeing How Much Avengers: Endgame Made at the Box Office
We knew Avengers: Endgame was going to smash the box office à la the Incredible Hulk when it hit theaters on April 22, but we never could’ve possibly predicted just how much money the Marvel movie would earn right off the bat. The Russo brothers-directed film wound up demolishing existing records during its opening weekend, raking in – are you ready for this? – an estimated $350 million domestically, making it the highest-earning North American movie debut in history. As for its global ticket sales, Endgame made a whopping $1.2 billion (yes, billion in its first five days, becoming the first film to ever exceed the $1 billion mark in its first weekend, and blowing away Avengers: Infinity War‘s previous record of breaking $1 billion in 11 days. Sheesh!
These impressive box-office earnings may not come as much of a surprise to dedicated superhero fans who’d been waiting with baited breath to see how things would go down in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Thanos’s infamous snap. Next up on Endgame‘s record-snatching journey? Dethroning Avatar as the highest-grossing movie of all time. Endgame will have to surpass the 2009 flick’s $2.7 billion earnings, and we have all the faith in the universe that it’ll get the job done by harnessing the power of wordsthose Infinity Stones.
