It is a memorable year for Hollywood at the box office. After all, it was the year when Avengers: Endgame surpassed Avatar at the box office to become the highest-grossing movie of all-time. It was a celebration when the Russo Brothers directorial beat James Cameron-helmed movie earlier this summer. The acclaimed film-maker congratulated the superhero movie makers and Marvel Studios for shattering the record on social. Now, Cameron shares a more detailed reaction to Avengers: Endgame beating Avatar and said that the MCU movie has helped him overcome a certain fear. 

Talking to Deadline, the Avatar director revealed that Avengers: Endgame surpassing Avatar at the box office gives him "hope." The filmmaker confessed he was "scared" that the audience might have changed. They wouldn't be excited to sit in a dark room with strangers and enjoy a movie. However, the success of Avengers: Endgame has put that fear to rest. 

“Avengers: Endgame is demonstrable proof that people will still go to movie theaters. The thing that scared me most about making Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 was that the market might have shifted so much that it simply was no longer possible to get people that excited about going and sitting in a dark room with a bunch of strangers to watch something," he told the publication. 

Does Cameron feel Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 would possibly dethrone Avengers: Endgame and place Avatar back on top? He feels, "Will Avatar 2 and 3 be able to create that kind of success in the zeitgeist? Who knows. We’re trying. Maybe we do, maybe we don’t, but the point is, it’s still possible.”
