Marvel Studios released new Avengers: Endgame character posters for both the surviving and fallen heroes of Thanos' decimation in Infinity War.

Right now, Star Wars: The Force Awakens still holds plenty of records, but that could change in the days and weeks ahead if Endgame is a juggernaut. As conjectured by trade analysts, the movie is not only turning out to be an emotional affair for fans but also soaring high at the box office globally. The film has released at only 2845 screens (in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages) and still the start is simply stunning.

The movie is presently playing in 46 worldwide markets, including India, the 22nd MCU outing is pacing ahead of Avengers: Infinity War in each of those. The U.K.is the second-largest global market with $15.3 million, followed by South Korea at $14.2 million and Australia at 13.9 million.

The movie, helmed by Russo Brothers Joe and Anthony, features an ensemble of stars Robert Downey Jr., Brie Larson, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson.
