Ever since Avengers: Endgame hit the screens in April, more than its content, the talks of its worldwide records grabbed more headlines. Though Marvel Cinematic Universe’s epic conclusion unleashed the fury at the box office and surpassed earth-shattering numbers of Titanic, it missed another James Cameron directorial Avatar by not-so-big margin and thus failing to become the highest-grossing movie in history ever.
In last month, Avengers: Endgame re-released in theatres with the additional footage and seems like it just helped the movie in conquering the throne of the highest-grossing movie in history ever. The latest updated figures have just came out, which shows that it is lagging behind by $500,000 away from Avatar’s $2.7897 billion and it is to be covered by today.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige announced this huge feat yesterday at studio’s Comic-con panel.
Avengers: Endgame director duo of Russo brothers too made it official and shared a heartfelt thank you for fans.
To the greatest fans in the universe, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you…https://t.co/MRKEKaKvVW

Avengers: Endgame re-released on June 28 with additional post-credit surprises.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbuster was premiered in April and had one of the most incredible box office runs.
In an interview to Screen Rant, Feige revealed there would be a deleted scene, a tribute, and some “extra surprises” for fans in re-release.
“Not an extended cut, but there will be a version going into theaters with a bit of marketing push with few new things at the end of the movie. If you stay and watch the movie, after the credits, there’ll be a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises,” he said.
The re-released a few days before the premiere of “SpiderMan: Far From Home“, giving fans the opportunity to revisit “Avengers: Endgame” before catching up with Peter Parker on his next solo adventure.
Before re-release Avengers: Endgame was $45 million away from matching the box office record set by Avatar.
