"Infinity War" is one of only four movies to ever reach $2 billion at the global box office.

The other three members of this exclusive club are "Avatar" ($2.788 billion), "Titanic" ($2.188 billion) and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" ($2.068 billion).

Both the Avengers 4 writers and Chris Hemsworth have said the next movie is bigger than Infinity War. Domestically, Infinity War still trails Black Panther by nearly $50 million and does not look like it will have the legs to beat that number by the time its run is over. Let's see how Infinity War does this weekend against the likes of The Incredibles. It's enough for Infinity War to hold the #5 slot on the all-time domestic list, but Black Panther sits pretty at #3, behind only Avatar and The Force Awakens. They've been continuously escalating ever since Josh Brolin, who stars as the Mad Titan in Infinity War, was cast as Cable, too.

No title has been revealed so far, although the Russos and Marvel chief Kevin Feige have said that the title could have been a plot spoiler for Infinity War.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the third Avengers film, and the 19th film in the MCU, eked passed the $2 billion mark on Monday. This makes it the third-highest grossing film internationally, and the fifth-biggest stateside.

In overseas markets, the film has set industry records in total earnings in Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Vietnam.

Other top territories include United Kingdom ($95.1M), South Korea ($92.8M), Brazil ($65.9M), Mexico ($59.9M), Australia ($46.3M), France ($45.3M), India ($43.6M), Germany ($43.4M), Russian Federation ($34.4M), and Japan ($33.6M). But as the marketing for "Infinity War" progressed, it became increasingly clear that Hawkeye will not play a part in the Avengers' initial bout against Thanos.
