The box office smash had already overtaken the UK box office totals of superhero predecessors Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Hulk and Captain America some weeks ago.
Marvel Avengers Assemble is also The Walt Disney Company UK's 2nd biggest live action film to ever be released, behind Pirates of the Caribbean and the 3rd biggest film ever to be released by the company.
The film began opening across the world on April the 25th, crossing the $1 billion threshold at the global box office after just 19 days of release and continues to break impressive box office barriers:
- It is the #3 film of all-time globally, behind only Avatar ($2,782M) and Titanic ($2,185M)
- It stands as the #3 film of all-time domestically, behind only Avatar ($761M) and Titanic ($659M)
- The film is the #4 film of all-time internationally, behind only Avatar ($2,022M), Titanic ($1,527M) and Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows
