“Avengers: Infinity War” has passed $2 billion worldwide at the box office after 48 days of release, becoming only the fourth movie ever to do so after “Avatar,” “Titanic,” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

The film has earned $656 million domestically through June 11, and is the fifth-highest grossing U.S. film of all time. It has the record for biggest opening weekend with $257.7 million, beating “The Force Awakens” by $10 million.

“Avengers: Infinity War” also was the fastest film to hit $1 billion worldwide, which it did in 11 days, one day faster than “The Force Awakens.”

The movie combined casts from many other Marvel movie franchises, including “Iron Man,” “Captain America,” “Thor,” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Stars included Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Letitia Wright, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt, among many others.

Globally, “Infinity War” has beat out all other movies in the Marvel cinematic universe, but domestically, “Black Panther” is still ahead of it with $699.4 million.   

It is the 10th year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will have grossed $17 billion globally by the end of the summer, Deadline reported

“Avengers 4” (still untitled) is set to open May 4, 2019, in North America. It remains to be seen whether the fourth installment can continue to break records and surpass its predecessors.
