Iger said that Disney was "thrilled" with the success of the film, which is now the second highest grosser of all time. Endgame has even surpassed the earnings of James Cameron's 1997 classic Titanic at the box office. The Anthony and Joe Russo-directed film, which tied up the storylines of 22 movies in the MCU, earned $2.272 billion in less than two weeks of its release, crossing the $2.187 billion haul by Titanic. Endgame is yet to claim the spot of highest earning film ever, which belongs to Cameron's 2009 film Avatar ( $2.78 billion).

It was previously reported that Disney+ will be launched on 12 November. Besides Endgame, the platform will also include exclusive original content such as a live-action Star Wars series called The Mandalorian and animated Monsters at Work, inspired by hit Pixar movie Monsters Inc. Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow will soon have her own standalone film, to be directed by Cate Shortland. Marvel is also developing limited TV series for Disney+ for Falcon and Winter Soldier as well as Loki and Scarlet Witch.
