Avengers: Endgame is now the highest grossing.
It seems that this spoiler-filled epic, coupled with the social media campaign of #DontSpoiltheEndgame, had practically everyone rushing to the theaters not once but multiple times as Avengers: Endgame has made box office history by not only breaking through the $1 billion mark in its first
As well as breaking global records, Avengers: Endgame is also the movie to pretty much break domestic records being able to top the box office charts in every single territory.

Indeed, before Avengers: Endgame came along, it seemed an impossible feat to beat James Cameron, as Kevin Feige has attempted with four other MCU movies in the Top 10.
