James Cameron Congratulates Marvel for “Avengers: Endgame” Passing “Titanic” at the Box Office

Avengers: Endgame has climbed to the second spot in the all-time, worldwide box office rankings. On its way there it passed James Cameron’s 1997 classic Titanic. Today, the writer and director shared a message of congratulations to Kevin Feige and Marvel for the success of the film.

  • Endgame surpassed Titanic’s $2.19 billion earlier this week and is currently sitting at $2.3 billion.
  • Interestingly enough, the only film left for Endgame to overtake is Cameron’s Avatar, which sits atop the list with $2.79 billion.
  • Cameron drew the ire of Marvel fans last year when, in an interview with IndieWire, he said “I’m hoping we’ll start getting ‘Avenger’ fatigue here pretty soon. Not that I don’t love the movies. It’s just, come on guys, there are other stories to tell besides hyper-gonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It’s like, oy!”
  • Avengers: Endgame is in theaters now and climbing closer and closer to Avatar and that top spot.
