In a battle of the comic book movie blockbusters, Deadpool 2 is poised to be a clear winner against Avengers: Infinity War (now in its fourth weekend) at the box office. Marvel Studios kicked off the summer movie season a little earlier than usual this year by dropping their epic team-up at the end of April. Originally, Infinity War was set to open on May 4, but Marvel moved it up as a way to prevent the spread of spoilers. Another advantage of this shift was giving Earth’s Mightiest more of a cushion between its premiere and fellow tentpoles.
It’s safe to say things turned out very well for Infinity War, as it took advantage of a weak crop of competition (mainly niche films trying to be counter-programming) en route to becoming one of the highest-grossing films of all-time. Currently, it stands at a whopping $558.7 million domestically and it should continue to do well commercially.
