Avengers: Endgame overtook previous record holder Titanic to become the second highest grossing film, raking-in $2.272 billion worldwide in just two and a half weeks of release. Cameron writes that an iceberg sank the real Titanic, but it took the Avengers to sink his Titanic.

"To Kevin [Feige] and everybody at Marvel", reads the director's message, which was topped by the Avengers logo upending the famous ship. Everyone here at Lightstorm Entertainment salutes your fantastic achievement. As reported by Empire, this means Avengers: Endgame has beaten Titanic's previously held box office record of $2.187 billion, with now only Cameron's Avatar standing in the way of it being the biggest (box office) movie in history. "You've shown the movie industry is not only alive and well, it's bigger than ever!"

Of course, this has led to speculation that Avengers: Endgame might even surpass the $2.877 billion earned by Cameron's other record setting blockbuster, Avatar. Now the fourth installment in the Avengers franchise only has Avatar to beat, with both franchises now being part of the same Disney family.
