    Not a chance. Endgame has hype levels beyond anything seen for decades

    Box office estimates have Endgame hitting anywhere from 2 to 2.5 BILLION.

    So you may be right.

    Well, here's the rub: Barring a fluke in either direction, the MCU movie has an advantage over the Lucasfilm flick. For Star Wars IX to top the likely global gross of Endgame, it has to take an even bigger-than-expected jump from The Last Jedi. For Avengers: Endgame to end up below the expected final total of Star Wars 9, the MCU movie will have to drop more than expected from Avengers: Infinity War. Star Wars 9 will have to pull best-case-scenario box office while Avengers 4 will also have to pull worst-case-scenario box office.
    But you never know!!

    I mean, I'll still root for the underdog, but I also know that characters like Iron Man, Cap, etc had a head start on SW (some by over a decade). For many folks, I imagine that seeing those characters in such a way on the big screen after the first MCU movie so long ago is a huge deal. I'm not saying one or the other is better, just that Marvel has been around longer than SW, and has cultivated a healthy readership in those years. Nothing bad about that!

    I think the more appropriate battle at this point is Avengers: Endgame vs. Avatar. If it lives up to the hype, it will make a run at the #1 spot. Infinity War did just over $2 billion WW, and I would expect Endgame to exceed.

    I was reading the other day that Endgame as has had more advanced ticket sales than Infinity War, Aquaman, The Last Jedi and Captain Marvel combined.

    I was referring to the all-time box office record.

    For the 2019 calendar year, there's just no contest.

    I could be wrong though. I've lost track of James Cameron's plans for his 27 Avatar sequels.
    Although I guess he decided he needed to pump out a geriatric entry to the Terminator franchise first.
