The Avengers Juggernaught Passes $1 Billion

Yes. Before its second weekend has even finished The Avengers has passed a billion dollars in worldwide ticket sales and an equally impressive $373 million in domestic.

That puts it according to at #3 for Marvel brand movies (behind only Spider-man and Spider-man 2 which are likely to fall by Monday at this rate).

The Dark Knight's $533 million is already within sight. And it's already ranked 11th for Worldwide all time grossing movies.

Not only can we expect a sequel but a whole slew more Marvel movies and I'd say this along has justified Disney's purchase of Marvel a few years ago. Can you imagine the merchandise this thing must be pushing?
