"Avengers: Endgame" is expected to surpass James Cameron's "Avatar" this weekend and snag the record for the biggest global box-office gross of all time, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced on Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con.

"Avatar" held the record for a decade with $2.79 billion, and it seemed out of "Endgame's" reach before Disney rereleased the movie last month. "Endgame" was only $500,000 behind "Avatar" as of Friday, and will top it by the end of the weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
