James Cameron congratulates Avengers: Endgame for topping Avatar’s all-time global box office record. Audiences had been debating for months whether Marvel Studios’ explosive conclusion to “The Infinity Saga” would be able to surpass James Cameron’s sci-fi epic’s monumental financial achievement, and now we have an answer. But even having been dethroned and the audience-inflicted competition brought to a close, there is no bad blood between the two franchises.
The official Avatar Twitter account shared a message from Cameron congratulating Endgame on beating Avatar. Endgame co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo also took to Twitter to thank Cameron for helping them fall in love with movies. You can check out the tweets in the space below:
