Whoa! Everyone knew The Avengers was going to be a box-office smash, but the Marvel comic-based flick surpassed even the most optimistic of expectations! The movie grossed $80.5 million on Friday, making it the second-biggest single day of all time. It is second to last summer's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, which scored $91.1 million.
Box office observers believe that Avengers could still snag bragging rights for the top weekend opening of all time; Deathly Hallows Part 2 currently holds that spot, with $169.2 million.
Beating a number that big would definitely take some superpower, which The Avengers has, along with superstars, including Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson and Mark Ruffalo.
