While it took months for Cameron's Titanic to score the second rank in the list of the highest-grossing films, Avengers Endgame made it to the second spot in just 9 days.
Cameron earlier this week issued a congratulatory statement for Marvel Studios and producer Kevin Feige after Endgame crossed the global total of Titanic. He wrote, “To Kevin and everyone at Marvel, an iceberg sank the real Titanic. It took the Avengers to sink my Titanic. Everyone here at Lightstorm Entertainment salutes your amazing achievement. You’ve shown that movie industry is not only alive and well, it’s bigger than ever.”
