Well, $1.2 billion, actually.

Marvels much-awaited film 'Avengers: Endgame' is on a roll ever since its release all over the globe.

"Avengers: Endgame" earned $350 million alone in the US and Canada, blowing through the $258 million mark held by the superhero team's own gloved hands with last year's "Infinity War". Endgame even boosted the box office numbers of Captain Marvel (already a $1 billion club member), making it #2 at the box office with an additional $8 million.

Seven years ago, Marvel's The Avengers became the first movie to ever debut to $200 million at the domestic box office and now Endgame has become the first ever $300 million debut in USA box office history.

Now one expects something similar for Avengers: Endgame as well. While it may not be the end for the MCU just yet, it will definitely be hard to top it, even for Marvel.

The film had the biggest opening day ever in North America with an estimated $157 million on Friday - $37 million more than the previous record holder, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
