The Avengers: Set to make $600+ Million worldwide!

Remember a few years ago when Joss Whedon was a lovable misfit who made great shows like Firefly and Dollhouse that could never quite get their foot in the door to another season? Well, his latest outing, a little film called The Avengers (maybe you’ve heard of it?) is set to rake in more money than any other film during its first week of release. Still lovable, but not really a loser anymore. Via Huffington Post:

Hulk smash. According to numbers released by Disney, Marvel’s The Avengers has already grossed $218.2 million internationally, including $33.1 million on Monday. Couple that lofty number with foreign openings in Russia and China on Friday, and The Avengers could reach $400 million internationally by Sunday night.

And then there’s the domestic potential.

Pre-release tracking has the Joss Whedon film on course for at least $150 million during its three-day opening weekend — and perhaps more. After all, not only is excitement for the Marvel film at fevered levels, but The Avengers will have the benefit of being in 3D — an extravagance not afforded to last month’s box-office hit, The Hunger Games. All told, The Avengers could gross $600 million worldwide within its first week of release.

It should probably also be noted that his other movie, Cabin in the Woods, is slowly becoming a cult classic despite the fact that no one who’s seen it knows what it’s about. And now his movie is basically the ruling king of the web. Eat it, everyone at FOX who cancelled Firefly.
