Box Office News: Avengers close to 1.5 Billion Globally

We Know, We Know...More Avengers news but this is BIG....REAL BIG.
With ‘The Avengers’ still making the BIG BUCKS at the box office around the globe, Marvel’s superhero ensemble is now closing in on the $600 million mark at the US box office with a hefty haul of $598.3 million. The film is currently sitting comfortably at the third spot on the all-time world box office list, well ahead of last years ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2′ $1.328 billion. Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ has now earned $1.436 billion globally and trails only James Cameron’s ’Titanic’ ($2.185 billion) and ‘Avatar’ ($2.782 billion). Additionally, ‘The Avengers’ is third at the all-time US box office list, ahead of Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’ ($533.3 million) and also trailing Cameron’s ‘Titanic’ ($658.5 million) and ‘Avatar’ ($760.5 million).

Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in ‘Iron Man,’ ‘The Incredible Hulk,’ ‘Iron Man 2,’ ‘Thor,’ and ‘Captain America: The First Avenger,’ the global box office for ‘The Avengers’ has destroyed the totals of those individual films. The totals for those preceding films are: ‘Iron Man’ with $585.1 million worldwide, ‘The Incredible Hulk’ with $263.4 million worldwide, ’Iron Man 2′ with $623.9 million worldwide, ’Thor’ with $449.3 million worldwide, and finally ‘Captain America’ with $368.6 million worldwide.


In May, Walt Disney Pictures announced that a sequel to Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ was in development, following last April’s announcement that a follow-up to 2011′s ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ will be released April 4th, 2014. A sequel to last summer’s ‘Thor’ is scheduled for release November 8th, 2013 with Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) at the helm, and the third installment of the hit ‘Iron Man’ series, which has earned over $1.2 billion worldwide, scheduled for a May 3rd, 2013 bow.
