"Avengers: Endgame" continued its global domination at the box office in a second week victory lap that saw the blockbuster cross the $2 billion mark in record time and unseat "Titanic" as the second highest-grossing film ever worldwide. Domestically, newcomers, including thrillers ("The Intruder"), well-reviewed comedies ("Long Shot") or animated family fare ("Uglydolls") were left in the dust to pick up the scraps. The Walt Disney Co. estimated Sunday that "Endgame" added $145.8 million from North American theaters and $282.2 million internationally bringing its global total to $2.2 billion. "Endgame" is one of five movies to ever reach that threshold and, not accounting for inflation, is now second worldwide only to "Avatar's" $2.8 billion. "Avatar" reached $2 billion in 47 days of release compared with 11 for "Endgame," although in 2009 the theatrical landscape was different, most notably so in China.

Yes, the Marvel Universe goes on: there’s a “Spider-Man” movie due in July, after all, and Marvel execs have spoken of a five-year plan to continue its colorful, seismically successful superhero world. But “Endgame” is the climax to which these films have been building, and it’s well worth the payoff. It’s masterful in its juggling of characters and storylines, its mixture of light and dark tones, and its ability to tell a hugely complex story without ever feeling overbearing or overwrought. Put plainly, it’s everything that Marvel does right and very little of what it does … [Read more...] about Review: ‘Avengers: Endgame’ a super send-off

Captain Marvel is noted as one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel universe, and it seems her overwhelming superpowers were a bit of a "concern" for Avengers: Endgame.Carol Danvers is set to debut in her own standalone movie, after which she will come to the aid of the remaining Avengers in Endgame. However, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have addressed fears that her formidable powers will make things a bit too easy for the Avengers. "It's always a concern of ours about overpowering characters, because the reason that people relate to these characters is their humanity, and that they're flawed," Joe told CinemaBlend. "And the reason we love working so much with Captain America was that he was limited, and his heart was his superpower, you know? So we're all acutely aware of the dangers of having an overly powerful character. [But] we like sensitive storytelling, so... we found a thoughtful way through it."
