Three weeks before its release, “Avengers: Endgame” made a super splash Tuesday with record tickets sales and a new video released by Marvel.
Mobile retailer Atom reported the record for “Endgame” – selling three times more tickets in the first hour of pre-sales than “Avengers: Infinity War” did last year, according to Deadline.
Fandango also reported record sales for the Russo Brothers-directed sequel, which opens April 26.
Marvel’s announcement that tickets were being sold was retweeted 10,000 times in a mere 12 minutes, CNET reported.
In the new one-minute video, Thanos (Josh Brolin) and the Avengers are poised to face off again.
“You could not live with your own failure,” the supervillain says, taunting the heroes. “Where did that bring you? Back to me.”
Also appearing are Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), who is staring at a photo of himself with Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Captain America (Chris Evans).
Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) flies through space with the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Captain America, Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and War Machine (Don Cheadle).
“Avengers: Endgame,” the fourth flick in the blockbuster series, has been hotly anticipated since last year’s “Avengers: Infinity War.”
Waiting in the wings is “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which opens July 5.
