Didn’t we all expect it?
The box offices across the world have been firmly dominated by the franchise films of Disney in the recent years. Last year, Avengers: Infinity Wars roped in an astonishing $630 million in its opening weekend and turned out to be the fastest film ever to have crossed the mark of $1 billion. In 2015, the record was set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens which earned $517 million globally on the opening weekend while Black Panther earned $426 million.
Well, we all know Avengers: Endgame is not an overnight success. It’s a huge payoff for the superhero franchise of Marvel that started off with Iron Man 11 years ago. The movie included a scene where the end-credits rolled up and a possibility of an enormous interlinked universe was opened up which went on for the next 22 films. Avengers: Endgame has taken birth because of the hard work and immense labour of a decade to form the larger picture, the larger story that kept building on the plots and characters that each movie has to offer.
