Endgame made $60 million last night during the Thursday night previews, beating Star Wars Episode 7's opening night record of $57 million.

Guess that 3 hour runtime didn't hurt.

Based on my audience's overwhelming cheering throughout the movie, I'd say this one should have some legs.

The overseas market just keeps getting bigger and bigger. They are hoping to push this one to $600-$700 million overseas (start on Wednesday) and to over $300 million domestically (start Thursday night).
Only a single movie has broken $400 million overseas, and it wasn't Marvel Comics.

I don't watch superhero movies either. Seems to me, to make it work, you also have to have supervillains.

The success of x-Men franchize and the runawaysuccess of Spider-Man gave Marvel the backing to organize their less well known characters into a "Marvel Cinematic Universe" (MCU) where the characters would appear in multiple movies like comic books.

In 2008 they release Iron Man and reacquired the right for The Hulk whose movie had done poorly in summer 2003. The new Hulk movie in 2008 did just as bad as the 2003 movie. Neverthless Disney acquired Marvel Entertainment Group for $4 billion in 2009.

Despite Disney acquiring the company, the next three MCU films were already under contract to Paramount Studios

Iron Man 2
Thor
Captain America: The First Avenger

By the summer of 2017 Sony allowed Spider-man to be reintegrated into the MCU, but still retained the rights to the character to make their own movies, and spin offs like Venom and an animated Spider-Man.

With Disney buying FOX they now have the rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four, Daredevil and Elektra which can be re-integrated into the MCU.

Okay, y'all know I am not much for this comic book stuff, but I wonder if anyone on this forum went to the July first opening of the marvel comics exhibition at the Franklin Institute? the exhibit runs for several months and includes general museum entrance fees.

the Brandywine Valley events at this time of year include water fountain displays, the famed Londwood Gardens and the exotic flora that can filter so much impure water and sequester heavy metals, 19th century cooking and distillery operation, etv.
