Avengers: Endgame Ticket Resale Prices Are Ludicrous
I don't feel so good.
If you've attempted to purchase tickets to what's arguably the biggest movie this spring, there’s a decent chance you clicked away disappointed. Tickets for Avengers: Endgame were snapped up quickly, with many unable to even look at seats on ticketing sites like Cinemark and Fandango. Demand has led to listings on eBay that purport to be selling the highly coveted tickets, but at astronomical prices.
According to a CBS News report, scalpers on eBay are attempting to sell them for upwards of $25,000 on the high end. On the low end, a set of five tickets is being offered for $600. The five ticket package even comes with a financing option: $29 USD for 24 months through PayPal. Two tickets to a 3D showing of Endgame in Newport are going for $400.
As it stands, it's unclear whether the tickets are actually being purchased at these ridiculous prices. The listing for two tickets to a New York theatre for $5,000 has ended, but the original item listing states, "This listing was ended by the seller because there was an error in the listing." Another two tickets that were priced at $10,000 is also no longer available, and a message reads, "This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available."
Reports suggest that Endgame could debut at an estimated $200-250 million during its opening weekend. It's possible Endgame could surpass this estimate, as Avengers: Infinity War pulled in $257 million in its opening weekend, well over its estimated $180-225. Avenger: Endgame hits theatres on April 26.
Ahead of its release, Disney and Marvel released a new trailer. We've taken a close look at it and have an Avengers: Endgame trailer breakdown that analyzes every bit of new information it offers. A small slice of Avengers: Endgame was also shown at CinemaCon, but behind-closed-doors. While the general public won't be able to see it, details of what it includes have been published.
