In one week, ComicBook.com will host Game Over: An Evening With Joe Russo to sit down with the co-director of Avengers: Endgame and get answers to all of the remaining questions about the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Endgame's box office success lifted the box office to a new record-high weekend gross, with more than $400 million being spent to see movies in North America. "Avengers: Endgame is dusting every record in the books as it proves itself to be a cultural event on a global scale," Shawn Robbins, chief analyst for BoxOffice, tells ComicBook.com. "Marvel has delivered on their promise of an epic conclusion to unprecedented storytelling that prioritized creative vision and fan enthusiasm for the last eleven years. This is the payoff to that goodwill. No film in history has been this widely anticipated, released, and embraced in the same moment."
