Avengers: Infinity War even shook North America as it earned $250 million in its first weekend at US and Canadian box office.
Biggest Superhero Opening of All Time
Infinity War is the 19th film in the so-called Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) bringing together nine franchises and all the A-listers of Hollywood. Earlier DC's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice ($422.5 million) held the title but now Infinity War holds the global crown.
