Infinity War is the third film to hit $2 billion in its initial run and the second Disney film to do so.

While all the MCU films have had post-credits scenes that teased upcoming installments in an ever-expanding cinematic universe, Infinity War was the first film to end on a straight-up cliffhanger. "Infinity War" was also the fastest movie to ever reach $1 billion worldwide. All of those films were released over the winter holidays.

"Avengers: Infinity War" reached a box-office milestone this week, as it crossed $2 billion globally as of Monday after just 48 days in theaters. Infinity War now stands as Marvel's highest-grossing film ever - although Black Panther still has it beat domestically with $699.4 million. In China, the film's US$369.7 million gross to date ranks third all-time.

The mega film is the culmination of all the events put together in the Marvel Cinematic Universe which began with Iron Man in 2008. Infinity war ended on a cliffhanger when half of the universe was wiped off after Thanos did his infamous snap of the fingers.

Circling back to Infinity War, though, and it's fair to say that Hawkeye was sorely missed from the sequel's marketing campaign, resulting in a series of rather brilliant mock-up posters, as impassioned fans took it upon themselves to include Jeremy Renner's sharpshooter in the proceedings.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Danai Gurira, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.
