Directors Joe and Anthony Russo received death threats from fans due to Hawkeye's absence in "Avengers: Infinity War", Jeremy Renner revealed. The film opened to a massive $199.3M in China two weeks after the global debut and has gone on to become the third biggest release ever in the country with $369.7M to date.
Domestically, "Avengers: Infinity War" is the fifth-highest grossing pic of all time, with $656.1 million through June 11.
Welcome to the $2 billion club, "Avengers: Infinity War".
However, there are still some elements of Infinity War that fans are having a hard time getting over, like the fact that Thanos isn't even the most disliked character in the movie. It reached the milestone one day earlier than "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". It's now the third highest-grossing offshore release of all time behind Avatar ($2.027 billion), and Titanic ($1.528 billion). The same report predicts a sure-shot $2 billion gross for Avengers 4.
Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War set the record for the highest opening weekend box office collection in India. James Cameron is still, after all these years, king of the world. Anthony and Joe Russo have brought the story alive on the big screen with actors like Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Benedict Cumberbatch and Scarlett Johansson.
These are just some of the box office records and Hollywood history book entries that Infinity War can lay claim to now, as the full list is just staggeringly long.
By now, fans know that Hawkeye was not in "Avengers: Infinity War", after months of speculation about his whereabouts.
