On April 26 arrives the biggest film of 2019 in Avengers: EndGame. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: EndGame is the 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that began with the 2008 film, Iron Man. It is also the direct sequel to the 2018 blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, which is currently the highest grossing superhero movie of all time and as well as the only superhero movie to enter the two billion dollar global box office club. Infinity War was also received well by the critics, with many calling it one of the best in the franchise, if not the best.

In India itself, the pre-sale collections for Avengers: EndGame is insane with the shows filling up the moment booking windows were open on Sunday. Such a phenomenon was never witnessed for any Indian movie before. If this holds up, then Avengers: EndGame could beat up Aamir Khan's Thugs of Hindostan to become the highest opening day grosser. It is also expected to gross more than Avengers: Infinity War's collections, which is currently the highest grossing Hollywood movie in India.
