Marvel is claiming that their Avengers: Infinity War is the biggest superhero film of all times. Well, now the pre-sales are shouting that too. Infinity War is estimated to pull upto $250m in its opening weekend and has sold over double the number of tickets than previous record holder, BlackPanther. The advance ticket sales are so high that it has beaten the combined advance sales of Marvel’s previous seven releases including Thor: Ragnarock, Spider-Man: Homecoming and even Captain America: Civil War.
Although there are rumours that Avengers: Infinity War Part I and Part II are costing a combined $1 billion (around $500m each). But it is too hard to believe as it is more than even double of any Marvel film yet and that too with digital IMAX cameras. They have been experts in giving the audience just enough spectacle and action in films like Iron Man or Thor: The Dark World and has delivered top-tier blockbuster entertainment like Guardians of Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier for just around $160m. Then why would suddenly the production cost will rise by almost four times with even better equipment and technology.
Forbes also denied the possibility of Infinity War costing $1b. They said that Marvel is in this business for decades now and know there business very well why would they spend a huge chunk of money on something that they can do at much less cost, it’s just not making any sense.
In our opinion keeping in mind a large number of cast, the films will cost around $750m. But hope these rumours come out to be true and we get to experience something just out of the world.
