Avengers: Infinity War India collections prove it's a Marvel at Box Office

Speaking with BBC in a recent interview, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that the teenage Muslim superhero will "definitely" get some screen-time in the foreseeable future.

Avengers: Infinity War is already placed in the 24th position in China's all-time highest-grossing films list and is also the second highest-earning superhero film, only behind Avengers: Age of Ultron, which raked in a lifetime theatrical revenue of 1.46 billion yuan. The fourth "Avengers" film is due out next year.

Right off the bat you can safely assume that Avengers: Infinity War (which is only in it's third week of release) has another $70 million in the tank, so it will easily hop over Jurassic World to take the number 4 all-time slot. It's now the fifth highest-grossing movie of all time, but that won't last.

The Disney blockbuster, featuring a string of Marvel superheroes out to save the universe from powerful purple alien Thanos (Josh Brolin), has had a cumulative take over three weeks of $547.8 million, according to box office tracker Exhibitor Relations.

Infinity War posted the biggest opening days in South Korea ($39.2 million), Mexico ($25.1 million), Brazil ($18.8 million), the Philippines ($12.5 million), Thailand ($10 million), Indonesia ($9.6 million) and Malaysia ($8.4 million). Count on it. Will it reach "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" at No. 3? What's more, the Disney/Marvel film launched to more than $200 million in China, giving it a global haul of more than $343 million over the weekend.

Infinity War is also the first film in Singapore history to surpass the S$14 million mark. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe. The filmmakers will also use IMAX cameras to shoot the entirety of the next Avengers film, which is slated for release in May 2019. Disney's studios drew a total of $2.45 billion last quarter.
