The youngest Avenger has quickly developed a reputation as being the Marvel class's Most Likely to Spoil a Movie.
The previous record was set in 2015 by Avengers: Age Of Ultron, which made £32.3 million after two weekends on release. However, the movie, due out May 2019, might not be the end we've been led to believe. No summer movie has ever broken the $2 billion mark, but analysts are hopeful that Infinity War could be the first. That's before it hit China, the world's second-largest movie market. But that gets us into a discussion about The Leftovers and the Wu-Tang Clan, and that's a discussion for another day. This time, it's not just Avengers regulars like Iron Man, Thor and the Hulk returning to battle villain Thanos. Will the next "Guardians of the Galaxy" film include teen Groot's son? But reviews so far have been strong, marked by an 86 percent "fresh" score on Rotten Tomatoes.
The veteran actor, 46, attributes the success of Marvel films to the studio's love for the characters.
"By page 1.5, it was totally untenable". I think we all know some or all of these characters are coming back at some point, if only because their deaths were so sudden and lumped together.
"Given the popularity of the characters and given the popularity of the franchise, I don't think people should conclude there will never be another Avengers movie", Iger teased. And that was without even using the Infinity Gauntlet.
The box-office power of "Infinity War" is also changing Hollywood's calendar.
Taking to his official Twitter account, Reynolds, who is in the middle of Deadpool 2's global press tour, posted Wade Wilson's very own version of #ThanosDemandsYourSilence. But let's talk about the box office in some other story. That would be a relief for cinema owners, who suffered the worst sales in more than a decade in summer 2017.
This is especially intriguing, considering the set photos that have shown Iron Man and Ant-Man mixing it up with versions of Thor and Captain America who appear to be from the first movie, during the Battle of NY.
