Avengers: Infinity War smashes superhero box office record with £60m takings

It's now the fifth highest-grossing movie of all time, but that won't last. One thing was that at a later point in the process the decision was made to not move forward with the filmed plate of Nick Fury - instead we would do a camera takeover and switch to a full CG shot.

It won't be the studio's first female-led film - Brie Larson is already set to enter the franchise as Captain Marvel in 2019.

On Saturday, AIW recorded a whopping 491 million yuan ($77.49 million), making it the second highest single-day total ever in the mainland, only behind Monster Hunt 2's 546 million yuan ($86.18 million) opening day.

Infinity War had another record-breaking weekend at the box office, highlighted by a $200 million opening debut in China and passing the $1 billion mark for foreign receipts.

Coming from Feige, that could easily mean a whole lot of nothing, but the truth is that the MCU is going to need to introduce a new era of heroes to the world in order for it to move forward.

The Marvel-Disney superheroes' mega-haul now stands at $547.8 million domestically and over $1.6 billion globally in its third week of release. It now stands at the eight-largest all-time domestic release. Within 11 days, it became the fastest film to hit $1 billion in global sales, besting "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", which hit $1 billion in global sales.

"Infinity War", with $1.06 billion overseas, is also the first superhero film to gross more than $1 billion overseas.

In the "lives" category, we have Howard the Duck (Seth Green), Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), and Nakia - though regarding Lupita Nyong'o's character, the Russos said that she is "deep undercover", which is why she wasn't in Infinity War, but wouldn't comment specifically on her status post-dusting.

"Infinity War's" run of weekend titles should end this weekend, when "Deadpool 2" opens.
