But as the marketing for "Infinity War" progressed, it became increasingly clear that Hawkeye will not play a part in the Avengers' initial bout against Thanos. They also speculate what would need to happen for it to surpass The Force Awakens globally and Black Panther domestically.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the third Avengers film, and the 19th film in the MCU, eked passed the $2 billion mark on Monday. It holds the record for biggest domestic debut ever with $257.7 million in its opening weekend on April 27 to April 29, topping "The Force Awakens" by almost $10 million. Stateside, it's still going strong, taking 5th place in weekend 7 with $7.2M for a running total of $656.1M, the fifth highest grossing title of all time through June 11. The Marvel tentpole now stands as the fourth highest-grossing film of all time, unadjusted for inflation, behind Avatar ($2.79 billion), Titanic ($2.19 billion), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.07 billion). Internationally, it is the third highest grossing release ever with $1.346 billion.

Much of Infinity War's total has come from global box office receipts, particularly in China, where it's earned $369.7 million and become the country's third highest-grossing film ever. That said, Avengers 4 has the distinction of being a direct continuation of Infinity War, which will likely draw in a crowd who want to see the Infinity War story concluded.


The House of Mouse has had a huge year with its Marvel Studios brand thanks to "Infinity War" and the cultural phenomenon "Black Panther". On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

The Avengers will assemble again for the still-untitled fourth film, set for May 3, 2019.
