As Tony Stark said, part of the journey is the end. And when it comes to the story of the Avengers, there are a lot of people getting ready to witness the end. And I mean A LOT.
In case you somehow missed it, tickets for Avengers: Endgame went on sale last week and it immediately soared past some of the highest grossing films of all-time in terms of presale numbers. Now, you might think the initial rush has passed and sales have cooled off for Avengers: Endgame. You would be wrong.
According to CNBC, Atom Tickets has sold nearly double the amount of tickets for Avengers: Endgame in its first week of presale than it had for Aquaman, Captain Marvel, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Avengers: Infinity War, combined! Those four films have combine to earn more than $2 billion domestically to date, and Endgame doubled their presale tickets for Atom Tickets.
Not impressed yet? Fandango shared another impressive statistic regarding their sales of Endgame tickets.

Fandango has sold five times the amount of tickets for Endgame than what they sold for Avengers: Infinity War. Five times. Infinity War is the same film that hold the all-time record for opening weekend earnings both domestically at $257 million and worldwide at $640 million. Fandango has sold five times more tickets for Endgame. Let that sink in.
And keep in mind, this is just presale. The movie doesn’t come out for another few weeks. According to Forbes, Endgame could potentially be heading for a ridiculous $900+ million opening weekend worldwide, which would break Infinity War’s record by about $260 million.
As if the hype level for this movie isn’t already high enough, Entertainment Weekly has shared an interview with the original six Avengers stars and Marvel chief Kevin Feige.
Avengers: Endgame will hit theaters April 26.
