Avengers: Endgame has topped Avatar to become the highest-grossing film of all time.

Marvel boss Kevin Feige made the news official at the studio’s Comic-Con panel in San Diego, California on Saturday, announcing the blockbuster would pass Avatar‘s US$2.78-billion global box office mark over the weekend, ending the James Cameron-directed movie’s nine-year reign.

“Thanks to you, Avengers: Endgame is the biggest film of all-time,” Feige told fans in Comic-Con’s fabled Hall H.

The blockbuster has passed Avatar’s record in just 13 weeks and comes as bosses at Marvel’s parent company Disney celebrate another record-breaking weekend in North America, as The Lion King roars to the top of the box office to become the biggest July opening of all time.
