Color us not
surprised - this movie has, like, a bagillion superheroes in it!
Well six… but
Marvel created movies specifically designed to feed into this epic, collaboration project, so it would be shameful if the film didn’t dominate the box office!
Based on 12 a.m. midnight screening ticket sales,
The Avengers grossed $18.7 million beating ALL OTHER movies in the superhero genre… even the highly rated, iconic masterpiece, Dark Knight.
That rag-tag team of Marvel SH raked in enough to secure their spot as the

sequels, Twilight New Moon and Eclipse, beat it out at their respective $26.2 and $30 million - the current record holder!
