It is no surprise that Avengers Endgame (2019) is now the top box office movie having made $2.793 billion since its release in April. The record was previously held by Avataar (2009) at $2.789 billion.
What is a box office? It is where movie tickets are sold. The success of a movie is measured by the amount of money it makes on its ticket sales and Avengers Endgame heads that list now!
The film was re-released in June with a few new scenes added on to help it reach the top spot on the box office charts – A smart movie by Marvel Studios!
As an Avengers fan, if you were feeling a bit low about the franchise coming to an end; take heart as that’s not happening anytime soon! At the Comic Con convention held in San Diego in July, Marvel Studios announced 10 new superhero movies!
Here’s a list of movies that we can look forward to, some featuring beloved old characters, and some surprises.
~ The Black Widow: a standalone movie that fans have been looking forward to for a long time with actor Scarlett Johansson playing the lead.
~ The Eternals are super humans created by the Celestials (Mentioned in Guardians of Galaxy Vol.2) and responsible for protecting Earth. The power packed star cast features Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani and Brian Tyree Henry.
~ Shang – Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: This will be Marvel’s first Asian superhero, played by actor Simu Liu.
~ Thor: Love and Thunder has an unexpected twist, this movie has a female Thor wielding the hammer. Thor will be played by actor Natalie Portman.

Apart from these, we can also look forward to new stories with our favourite characters – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2 and Doctor Strange and Multiverse of Madness.
Some of the new movies are scheduled to release in 2020, so why sit around waiting? Why not watch the old movies again and get the stories straight? For all the diehard Avengers fans, here’s the order in which one should actually watch them to be fully up to speed!
