Well, records are made to be broken and it didn’t take long for that one to go down…

According to Variety, movie ticketing company Fandango has reported that Marvel’s next installment of the Avengers franchise, Avengers: Infinity War, has broken Black Panther’s pre-sales record. Infinity War tickets went on sale last Friday (3/16) and it only took 6 hours to do so.

Obviously, this news bodes well for Marvel, as it potentially sets the company up for their second billion dollar movie of 2018 and for Disney overall, who has a chance to have a strong year at the box office similar to their amazing record-breaking run in 2016.
