The film will be set before the events of Infinity War, which became only the fourth film in history to cross the $2 billion mark at the global box office. Only three other films can boast of this feat: Avatar ($2.78 billion), Titanic ($2.18 billion) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.06 billion).

2019 will also see the release of Captain Marvel and a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming and both films are expected to make close to $1 billion worldwide, according to a Forbes report.

After just 48 days in theaters, Avengers: Infinity War joins a very exclusive group of movies that have made more than $2 billion across the globe.

The Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday that "Infinity War" reached the mark Monday, about seven weeks after opening. Now that ambition is paying off like few others out there as Infinity War has officially earned more than $2 billion globally. It holds the record for biggest domestic debut ever with $257.7 million in its opening weekend on April 27 to April 29, topping "The Force Awakens" by almost $10 million. The highest domestic earner of all time is Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a total of $936,662,225.

Even Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said that Hawkeye skipping "Infinity War" is "one of the best things that ever happened" to the character. The same report predicts a sure-shot $2 billion gross for Avengers 4. Internationally, it is the third highest grossing release ever with $1.346 billion. James Cameron is still, after all these years, king of the world.

The film got a flying start in India too by recording a gross box office collection of Rs 120.9 crore in its opening weekend.

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time.
