In its thirteenth week in the box office and a minor re-release with additional footage a few weeks ago, this past Saturday at Marvel’s Comic-Con panel, boss Kevin Feige was pleased to announce that Avengers: Endgame has finally past Avatar‘s $2,789,705,275 global box office this weekend to become the biggest film of all time. It only took nine years for the a film to topple the record, but thankfully it finally happened.
“Thanks to you, Avengers: Endgame is the biggest film of all-time.” – Kevin Feige
James Cameron tweeted this to commemorate the feat.

Avatar has still made more in the international market, so it’s not a total loss for Cameron, and he has a chance to redeem himself with his upcoming Avatar sequels. Either way Disney owns it all.
I don’t know about you, but I’m glad that Endgame surpassed Avatar. It’s a superior film all around, even if Avatar was groundbreaking in 3D visualization, it was a pretty lackluster movie.
