After 154 days of release in North America, the Joss Whedon-directed superhero epic The Avengers, has ended its theatrical run. More after the jump...


The Avengers has officially ended the theatrical run in US theatres. And what a run it was. The film opened on May 4th, and went on to break the opening weekend record with a shocking $207 million, as well as becoming the biggest film of the year, so far. The Joss Whedon-helmed superhero team up of a lifetime is also the third highest-grossing film ever, making over $1.5 billion worldwide. The only two films that are ahead of The Avengers, are James Cameron's Avatar and Titanic. Many would think that now The Avengers have finally assembled, this is the end. Of course, we know that this was the ending of Phase One, but also the beginning of Phase Two, which starts next year with Shane Black's Iron Man 3.



The Avengers is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”--the super hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

Starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, & directed by Joss Whedon from a screenplay by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble on May 4, 2012. The film is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. In addition to "Marvel's The Avengers," Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including "Iron Man 3" on May 3, 2013; and “Thor 2” on November 8, 2013.
