Daily Mail UK reports this year it's time for Avengers: Endgame” to show its mettle. Initial debut box office expectations are between $200 million and $250 million but it could spring a surprise with earnings of between $750 and $800 million worldwide. This will be because of its Chinese debut. In the case of “Avengers: Infinity War,” the Chinese market took off a few weeks after its domestic debut, hence could not make much of an impression. However, this time, Avengers: Endgame” will debut in China two days ahead of its domestic debut.

In comparison, the runtime for “Avengers: Infinity War” was two hours and 29 minutes. Obviously, the latest Avengers movie will have to do with fewer shows at each theater. Marvel could compensate for this by roping in more theaters. "Infinity War" opened in 4,474 theaters, and Endgame will have to go beyond that.

As far as earnings go, the figures of "Infinity War" are impressive enough.

Daily Mail UK says it earned more than $2.048 billion worldwide to become the highest-grossing movie of the year worldwide. The demand for "Endgame" tickets is high and traffic was heavy on many ticket sites. Various sources confirmed that “Avengers: Endgame” has put “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” to shade as far as the highest ticket sales for the first 24 hours is concerned. There are reports of sales of tickets on a premium at eBay.

Thanos will return in ‘Avengers: Endgame’

It took Marvel Studios six years to get to that stage. Josh Brolin plays the character of this villain and when he confronted the Avengers, he lost no time to prove his might. Marvel has woven a veil of secrecy around the character of the Mad Titan. The film trailers have revealed very little about him. The intention is to keep the fans guessing which appears to be a good strategy for the box office. An element of suspense always pays rich dividends and the demand for tickets is an indication that Marvel is on the right track.
