‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Breaks Pre-Sale Records In Just Six Hours

It doesn’t hit screens until the end of April, but Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War has already broken records. Three years after the release of the last Avengers adventure Age of Ultron, Infinity War is one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2018. Picking up from where 2016’s Captain America: Civil War left off, it’s been promised as a spectacular finale to the Marvel franchise.

Record Breaking

With so much hype, it’s understandable fans are eager to get their hands on tickets, and the epic superhero adventure took no time smashing pre-sale ticket records. According to ticket sale site Fandango, it took just six hours to surpass sales for both previous record holders Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and fellow 2018 Marvel release Black Panther. 


Atom Tickets reported the ultimate superhero adventure sold more tickets in its first pre-sales day than Black Panther sold in its first month, Variety reported. Marvel recently moved up the release date of the movie to April 27 and celebrated the ticket release with a brand new trailer.

Old And New Meet

Infinity War features 40 superheroes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will see many stars meeting for the first time. Original Avengers Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, and Scarlett Johansson will share the screen with newcomers including Thor: Ragnarok actress Tessa Thompson and Panther’s Chadwick Boseman.


The addition of the Guardians of the Galaxy crew led by Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord to the Avengers line-up is one of the most anticipated moments by fans.

Marvel’s Future

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Infinity War and its untitled sequel (to be released in 2019) have been promised as the epic conclusion to the Marvel franchise that has been building for the last ten years. Marvel boss Kevin Feige has been teasing fans for years that they will completely shake-up the Marvel Cinematic Universe and signal the start of a new direction.


Not everyone’s stories will continue, and there have been major hints huge stars will be killed off. Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner are just some of the stars whose contracts will run out after Avengers 4, and have publicly stated that they’re done with the franchise.
