The key here is that Avengers: Infinity War is still on the move - in a big way. If anything, this list is fluid on a day-to-day basis, as Infinity War keeps pulling in big box office returns. The question is, will this Avengers movie reach the $2 billion mark, and be able to contend with those top three spots on the list of all-time highest grossing films.
It seems highly possible - but Marvel Studios has to do its work fast. This upcoming weekend is the last one where Infinity War will be able to easily dominate the box office. After that, Deadpool 2 comes sweeping into theaters, and will cut heavily into Marvel's business, and the sustainability of Infinity War's run.
That's the theatrical reality, but there's also more to measure. Infinity War will have a huge second run on home video, and Marvel fans are already pushing for more special edition formats to be offered. It's pretty much a chorus of people already screaming "Shut up and take my money!" and Marvel will no doubt follow suit.1comments
