This year’s blockbuster hit from Disney and Marvel Studio’s all-star superhero flick The Avengers has earned $1.5 billion worldwide and hits a milestone. The film outfits ended the summer in a stunning fashion which gave a big push to increase its number of theaters running the movie of almost two thousand.
The Avengers is now a nearly four-month-old film and reaching past $1.5 billion mark, it got the 3rd spot on the list of highest-grossing films of all time, just behind James Cameron’s – Titanic and Avatar.
Joss Whedon directed the movie, which stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Chris Evans as Captain America and Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow.
The Avengers has captured the imagination of hardcore superhero fanatics and they’re able to bring the popular characters all together and at the same time putting all the same stars who played in the individual films in one billing. How can you just top that? The story has a mixture of humor and action and shows equal exposure on the characters.
Whedon has done a great job in directing this film, let’s just hope that the sequel will even be a lot bigger.
