Avengers: Endgame was a movie that created history in 2019. Breaking Avatar’s record seemed impossible at a point. But Marvel fans gave a shout out to the movie as they broke the record. Can another movie break Avengers: Endgame’s record?
Captain Marvel 2 is a movie that can break Avengers: Endgame’s ‘top-grossing movie’ record. While the record seems unbreakable, there are reasons that support the Marvel Phase 5 movie to mark its name in history for a long time to come. But, interestingly, Captain Marvel 2 is not the only one that has the potential to chase the records set by Avengers: Endgame.

‘Avengers: Endgame‘ Record
Never had a movie ever grossed a whopping amount that crossed $2 billion in just 11 days! In fact, when it comes to the records it broke, there is a list of box-office records for Avengers: Endgame. The movie made the fastest 2.5 billion dollars and made it seems unimaginable that its record could be broken by another. Well, needless to say, Avengers: Endgame earned every penny after years of setting up a team of Avengers in the newly set-up Marvel Cinematic Universe. Every detail was webbed, every other Marvel movie led to this one in 2019. Could another project break the many records set by Avengers: Endgame?
So, it is time for an MCU movie to take over the box-office record title before another Hollywood movie overtakes. Avengers 5 is way farther in the future to retain the title at Marvel Studios. This calls for another Marvel movie to take over the driving seat. Here is one that has all the potential required —
Captain Marvel 2 could break the record
When Brie Larson took the stage in the Captain Marvel movie, no one anticipated that a new superhero on-screen could gross a billion dollars. Especially given the resistance the actress received ever since her cameo in Avengers: Endgame. Captain Marvel was easily able to gross almost 50% of Avengers: Endgame with just one superhero. Such was the charm of the character!
With Captain Marvel 2 and an ever-growing MCU audience, this movie could easily touch the 2.7 billion mark set by Avengers: Endgame. The hype around Marvel movies has become ten-fold. Added to this, if one were to make a sequel to an already successful movie with an actress who is constantly making an increased amount of headlines, it would not be a difficult task to break the record. And how can one forget the reports that claim X-Men will be introduced in Captain Marvel 2?!
Brie Larson’s second solo movie in MCU has all the elements to make it an overnight success. But is it the only movie which can challenge Avengers: Endgame’s record? Or does the record only belong to Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Other movies that can break Avengers: Endgame’s record
Captain Marvel 2 isn’t the only movie that might make over $2.5 billion, many other Marvel Phase projects have the potential too. The Eternals is one such movie. With big names and a team of new characters, the Eternals could easily break Avengers: Endgame unbreakable record. In fact, Avengers 5 also has the scope to hit a homerun.
But what about a non-Marvel movie? Well, surely a DC superhero movie could easily beat at a Marvel one thanks to the fan following that both the worlds have. But what if we removed superheroes from the equation altogether? Could a movie still be great?
Without the superhero powers
Do you know that ‘The Titanic’ grossed $2.1 billion?! If the classic movie gets a second take, that can easily break Avengers: Endgame’s box office record. The makers will only have to find an on-screen pair as good as Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet.
The Harry Potter world is another one that has a massive (and dedicated) fan-following. But that is not the only reason the next movie from the magical world would easily cross $2.7 billions. Fans had been hung up on the timeline created by J.K Rowling. It was so accurate that reading the books felt like delving into history. Every event’s date fitted like a glove. But ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ ended on such a cliffhanger that it shook the whole Harry Potter time. The next Fantastic Beasts sequel will clear the air around so many questions that fans would not want to miss any of it.
As if that is not enough, there are rumours of a movie on Harry Potter’s son, Albus Severus Potter. ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ could, hands down, be the movie that can break Avengers: Endgame’s box office record.
A treasure of classics
The Lion King came in 2019. It was a remake of a classic movie that we have seen so many times and whose story we know like the back of our hands. But despite that, the Lion King banked $1.6 billion. The classic stories that we have seen growing up, if re-made with better and contemporary animation technology or with actual humans instead of their animated forms, have the possibility of breaking Avengers: Endgame’s record in the blink of an eye.
