Avengers: Endgame was predicted to break box office records before it even debuted. The hotly anticipated film is the culmination of some ten years of story telling and has been eagerly awaited by Marvel fans. And now the movie has finally been released, its projections are being blown out of the water. The fourth Avengers film still has a long cinematic run ahead and so far its takings are astronomical.

Will Avengers: Endgame be the highest grossing movie of 2019?

The penultimate Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Three movie is poised to take the mantle of biggest blockbuster this year.

William Hill have it at 3/1 that the new Avengers film becomes the highest grossing film of all time, and 1/5 that it is the biggest film of 2019.

This would top the $2.788 Billion that Avatar took at the worldwide box-office.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Judging by fan expectation, Avengers: Endgame could be one of the most watched movies of all time and, in fact, we expect it to smash all box office records.
