Avengers: Endgame is killing it at the box-office as they are breaking one record after another. In India, the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) film has crossed the Rs 300 crore mark already and could be looking at a lifetime collection of Rs 375 crore, which is massive for a Hollywood flick. The total collections in terms of the global box-office market stand at $2.2 billion and counting. It has successfully crossed James Cameron's romantic tragedy Titanic (1997) whose lifetime collections was $2.1 million.

James took to his Instagram page to tip a hat to Team Avengers: Endgame, especially Kevin Feige. The photo shared by Cameron sees the Titanic ship sinking once it hits the Avengers 'A' logo. James wrote, "To Kevin (Feige, producer) 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 the movie industry is not only alive and well, but it’s also bigger than ever." This is indeed an impressive gesture from James, wouldn't you agree?
