Titanic was the second highest grossing film of all time but only till Avengers: Endgame came into the picture. Avengers: Endgame knocked out Titanic from its second position.
James Cameron Salutes Avenger Endgame
Titanic stood for 2.1 billion for lifetime collections but Endgame replaced its position with 2.87 billion USD gained at current box office collections worldwide. James Cameron salutes Avengers: Endgame for its amazing achievement. He shared a picture over the twitter where it showed the logo of Avenger hitting the Titanic ship and making it finally sink into the ocean. He wrote with the picture, “To Kevin (Feige, producer) and everyone at Marvel, an iceberg sank the real Titanic. It took the Avengers to sink my Titanic. Everyone here at Lightstorm Entertainment salutes your amazing achievement. You’ve shown that the movie industry is not only alive and well, it’s bigger than ever”.
Marvel Fans appreciated his humble response and even showered support for his new Avatar film. The fans loved the creativity of James of how he used the logo hitting the Titanic ship. There was one fan who even wrote “Non-petty king! Can’t wait for Avatar 2!”
Will Endgame even overtake Avatar?
In the present scenario, Avatar marks up to be the highest grossing Hollywood film. Now, only time will tell if Endgame has what it takes to overtake Avatar. An interesting comment came from another fan who said, “It takes a lot to hand the baton like this. I can respect that. Now, you got another one of these things ready and waiting for A4 to take Avatar down? I hope so”.
In less than two weeks, Endgame had a collection of $2.2 billion and the lifetime collection of Titanic was $2.1 billion. It won’t be a surprise if Avenger even cross Avatar which is standing at $2.78 billion. Well, getting an appreciation for Marvel movie from Jim himself is a big surprise since he was the one who had shown major disapproval for superhero movies. Remember his last comment after Black Panther crossed Titanic at the box office, “I’m hoping we’re going to start getting Avenger fatigue. Not that I don’t love the movies. It’s just, come on, guys, there are other stories to tell besides, you know, hypogonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process.”
