So after days of 'Will it, Won't it?' and a re-release with additional footage, Avengers: EndGame has finally managed to beat Avatar's box office collections. By doing so, Avengers: EndGame has become the highest-grossing movie of all time at the global box office. As per Deadline, Avengers: EndGame may not have crossed the collections of Avatar just as yet. It is still short by 500k which EndGame is expected to cross within the next 24 hours. Currently, Avengers: EndGame's box office numbers are pegged at $2.789 billion.

EndGame beating Avatar and taking the number 1 spot will be a terrific Sunday Morning news for all marvel fans. And it is going to a record not going to be toppled soon, unless James Cameron's Avatar 2, that's coming out in 2020, or even Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker, have their own plans to do so.
After Deadline shared the story, EndGame directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, have tweeted the story and thanked 'the greatest fans in the universe' for making it happen. Avengers: EndGame Re-Release: Fans Are Disappointed With New ‘Content’ Marvel Has to Offer; Can It Beat Avatar at the Box Office?

Marvel Cinematic Universe chief Kevin Feige also announced this record at the San Diego Comic-Con 2019, where he said, "Thanks to you, Avengers: Endgame is the biggest film of all-time.". He had also announced the future of MCU with Phase 4 movie-lineup revealed.
Avengers: EndGame has, however, not beaten Star Wars: The Force Awakens to be the highest-grossing movie in North America. In India, though, it remains the highest-grossing foreign-language film of all time, as well as the only Hollywood film to make more than Rs 350 crore.
Avengers: EndGame is the 22nd film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is the culmination of the 21 movies that came before. Along with Infinity War, it is the only two Marvel movies to make more than $2 billion at the global box office.
