It goes without saying that Marvel’s upcoming Avengers: Endgame is one of the biggest and most anticipated movies of 2019. With the way its prequel, Infinity War, ended, it has left many with questions that only Endgame can answer. Now, we’ve seen how some ticket websites have been struggling to keep up with sales, and now we know why.
According to a report from CNBC, it seems that presales of the tickets for the movie are off the chart. It has managed to exceed first-hour and first-day records on websites such as Fandango and Atom Tickets, but it has also managed to outsell the combined presale tickets of other Marvel movies such as Avengers: Infinity War and Captain Marvel.
It has also reportedly sold nearly twice the amount of tickets as Aquaman and Star Wars: The Last Jedi in its first week. This report doesn’t come as a surprise because according to reports from a variety of websites in some parts of the world, there are some who are trying to scalp their tickets and resell them for hundreds of dollars to those who wish to watch the movie on its opening day.
Needless to say that if you can wait, perhaps not being the first to watch the movie might not be such a bad idea, but regardless, here’s hoping that Endgame lives up to the hype. In the meantime, Marvel is expected to share details about its Phase 4 for the MCU later this year after Spider-Man: Far From Home.
