Avengers: Infinity War has been reassessed to end up becoming the highest-grossing comic book adaptation of all time with possibly $2 billion from the worldwide box office.

Thanks largely to "Black Panther" and "Avengers: Infinity War", the overall domestic box office is up 4% to $4.16 billion as of May 9, according to comScore.

Joe and Anthony Russo are the co-directors for the hugely successful Avengers: Infinity War, and now the pair have spoken to Entertainment Weekly not about the film, but instead about Thanos' appearance in Fortnite: Battle Royale, as you can currently play as the villain in the game.

Because of the massive success of "Infinity War", the box office is up 4.9 percent for the year, and a slew of blockbusters coming up are hoping to continue the success, including "Deadpool 2" and "Solo: A Star Wars Story" just one week later. With a $200M (RMB 1.266B) debut, the Disney/Marvel movie becomes the 2nd biggest industry three-day bow behind The Fate Of The Furious (in local currency). A lot of people suggested him to watch all the films in Marvel Cinematic Universe to understand Infinity War.

In a distant second, "Life of the Party" earned an estimated $18.5 million, which is a few million short of some of McCarthy's other comedy collaborations with husband Ben Falcone like "Tammy" and "The Boss".

Another new film, "Breaking In", a thriller starring Gabrielle Union, was third at $16.8 million.

The follow-up, Deadpool 2, is due to be released in the United Kingdom on 16 May. We already know that the fourth Avengers movie will round out an unofficial Hulk trilogy that began in Ragnarok, so it is easy to assume that Joe and Anthony Russo will make room for more scenes between Bruce Banner and Natasha Romanoff.
