Avengers: Infinity War made $2.03 billion at the worldwide box office. It is by far the most successful movie in the MCU to date, although in the US it made slightly less than Black Panther. The next Avengers movie is set to hit theaters next May--we still don't know the title, despite rumors last week that it might been accidentally revealed.
