INFINITY WAR BEATS WONDER WOMAN IN BOX OFFICE EARNINGS
Avengers: Infinity War has now earned $857 million globally, beating Wonder Woman which earned $822 million. Infinity War already beat Thor: Ragnarok ($854 million), 2002’s Spider-Man ($822 million), and last fall’s Justice League ($658 million), within just a few days of opening.
The big question now is whether — after breaking all box office records for its opening weekend — Infinity War can go all the way to the top of the superhero movie money pile and top reigning domestic king Black Panther ($681 million in the U.S. vs. Infinity War currently at $322 million) or the global box office leader for superhero movies, 2012’s Marvel’s The Avengers (1.5 billion).
The fast earning flick opens in China on May 11 so expect more dough to be made upon it's release.
