Tickets for Avengers: Endgame will go on sale Tuesday, April 2. Arguably the most anticipated movie of 2019, Endgame serves as the culmination of Marvel Studios' 22-film Infinity Saga, which began back in 2008 with the original Iron Man. Over the past decade, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become the most popular film franchise of its era, making international blockbuster stars out of everyone from Captain America to the Guardians of the Galaxy. Considering how successful the MCU's been, it wasn't any surprise when last year's Infinity War became just the fourth movie in history to earn $2 billion worldwide.
Endgame is expected to be just as massive a hit. Building off Infinity War's devastating cliffhanger ending (which saw Thanos eliminate half of all life in the universe), fans all around the globe are eager to see how the survivors band together and defeat the Mad Titan once and for all. Smartly, Marvel's been extremely secretive in regards to the marketing campaign, revealing minimal amounts of footage and even manipulating shots to keep story details under lock and key. All that's done is increased demand to see the movie, and now people can finally secure their tickets.
LRM reports Endgame tickets will be available for pre-order on April 2, and because of the 3-hour runtime, the first showings will be at 6 pm, rather than 7. Screen Rant was able to confirm with our source this information is correct. Obviously, interested parties should make their purchases ASAP so they're not sold out for opening weekend.
It goes without saying Endgame is a monumental cinematic event and it'll likely break some box office records during its run. Early projections indicate it'll pull in a whopping $282 million domestically in its first three days, which would be significantly more than Infinity War's $257 million. Normally, sequels to record-shattering films have a difficult time matching or surpassing its predecessor's performance, but Endgame may prove to be a rare exception to the rule. It being the concluding chapter of a 22-movie arc gives it a greater importance, and everyone from casual moviegoers to die-hard fans won't want to miss out on all the twists and turns. Usually, final installments in a franchise do very well commercially (Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings). Of course, Endgame isn't the last MCU movie overall, but it is the sendoff to a story viewers have been following for more than a decade.
Marvel's 2019 got off to an incredible start when Captain Marvel thoroughly exceeded expectations and rose up the all-time charts itself. With Carol Danvers' solo vehicle all but guaranteed to cross $1 billion globally, the MCU is poised to have another massive year that'll substantially pad the $18 billion worldwide it's already made. Time will tell just how big Endgame will become, but whatever it brings in, it'll just further cement the MCU as the most dominant force in movies today.
