How big is Marvel’s The Avengers? Doing the math, if we take its domestic total of its record-breaking opening weekend ($207.4 million) and its foreign total of $447.4 million we get a global accumulation of $654.8 million!
To steal a character from Marvel’s X-Men, that’s what you call a Juggernaut.
