The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron are now the top two, with $1.5 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively. The movie was reported to be the top-grossing superhero film of all time in the United States.

The critically acclaimed offering from director Ryan Coogler has so far earned more than $1.2 billion in the global market combined.
