What’s better than being the biggest film on planet Earth? Being the biggest film on planet Earth with some schweeet toys to boot. Infinity War, in that respect, has smashed it.
The movie, which along with Avengers 4, is the grand finale to the MCU and sees Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finally go up against Thanos (Josh Brolin) as he attempts to assemble the Infinity Gauntlet.
To fight off the evil Titan the three assemble the biggest Avengers team yet, featuring Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), the Guardians of the Galaxy and countless other heroes from across the cinematic universe.
Now, Disneyland is selling Infinity Gauntlet replicas in the form of sipper cups:
This means, while queuing up for your favourite rides at the theme park, you can do looking cool and refreshed – and not lame and parched.
The ‘Souvenir Sipper’ comes with ‘your choice of contour beverage’, and costs roughly £18, which, if you’ve been to Disneyland, is kind of a bargain.
Of course, it’s only available for a limited time at the California Adventure park – situated near the Hyperion, so if you’re in the area and really really want one, go for it.
I can destroy half of civilization with a single sip… because my cup is a friggin’ Infinity Gauntlet!!! How cool is this new souvenir sipper mug from Disneyland?!?! ?? You can find them in Holywoodland at DCA! . . . . #dca #disneyland #disneyblogger #infinitygauntlet #infinitywar #thanos #infinitystones #disneymerch #disneyig #marvel #avengers #disneymom #disneylandap
In related news, the CEO of Disney has confirmed Avengers 4 might not be the last we’re likely to see, which means we might be able to see the growth of the pair’s apparent child.
Not much is known about 2019’s Avengers 4 considering the huge hype around current box-office smash Infinity War, but the people want it. The numbers show.
During an earnings call, Bob Iger revealed a cheeky little bit of info regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Iger told The Hollywood Reporter:
We meet on a regular basis with our Marvel team, and we’ve plotted out Marvel movies that will take us well into the next decade.
I’m guessing we will try our hand at what I’ll call a new franchise beyond Avengers, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t see more Avengers down the road. We just haven’t made any announcements about that.
Given the popularity of the characters and given the popularity of the franchise, I don’t think people should conclude there will never be another Avengers movie.
Disney CFO, Christine McCarthy, noted:
I think the outstanding performance is nothing short of stellar. There is one difference in this movie … that’s the size of the cast. …
Because of the size of the cast involved and the cost of the movie, the scale, the magnitude, while this film is going to be very profitable, it may not be on the same return level as some of the other films, because of the sheer scale of it.
Infinity War opened with an estimated $630 million worldwide, smashing previous-holder The Fate of the Furious with $542 million. It’s since overtook the record set by The Force Awakens, which garnered $248 million.
