It’s official! After spending ten years as the top-grossing film of all time, Avatar has finally been usurped. As of yesterday, Avengers: Endgame is the worldwide box office champion, currently standing at $2,790,216,193. Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have been busy celebrating the news as well as getting hyped over last night's Phase Four announcements during San Diego Comic-Com. Basically, it’s a good time to be a Marvel fan! However, the fans aren’t the only ones celebrating today. The MCU stars have also taken to the Internet to honor Avengers: Endgame and its milestone, which it earned in just under three months. Karen Gillan, who is best known for playing Nebula, posted about the win on Twitter:
“A sentence I’ll likely never say again in my life: our film has become the biggest movie in cinematic goddamn history!!!!!!!!!!!!,” she wrote.
Many people commented on the post to congratulate the actor:
“Congrats to you all you truly made my favorite childhood comics come to life and It was amazing to watch,” @peterhaag86 added.
“You guys earned the spot,” @KTonarella commented.
Even Carla Gugino, who will be starring alongside Gillan in Gunpowder Milkshake, offered up her congratulations:
“SO cool! Congratulations Beauty!!!,” she replied.
In addition to Gugino and Gillan, the Gunpowder Milkshake cast features Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Michelle Yeoh (Star Trek: Discovery), and Angela Bassett (Black Panther). The film is being directed by Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, and is expected to hit theaters next year.
