The next Marvel Cinematic Universe has already broken ticket sales records.
"Avengers: Endgame" broke the internet on April 2, after the tickets for the next Marvel Cinematic Universe venue were available online. Several movie ticket services such as Fandango, AMC Theaters and Atom Tickets suffered server failures due to the large volume of fans looking to get tickets for the opening weekend. In just six hours, "Endgame" became the biggest ticket seller for the first day in Fandango's history, beating the holder of the previous record "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". With hundreds of exhausted weekend screenings, some of the tickets are on Ebay and selling "Endgame" tickets at unfathomable prices.
As Matt Singer of ScreenCrush reported, opening tickets for several weekends for "Avengers: Endgame" are selling for thousands of dollars on Ebay. A user is selling four tickets for one of the first Thursday night screenings of the movie in Skokie, Illinois, for $ 4,000, which averages $ 1,250 per ticket. That price is nothing compared to the two tickets sold for a screening on Saturday, April 28 in New York City at $ 4,999. That huge price makes each ticket worth $ 2,499. While those prices are at the upper end of the spectrum, many tickets are selling for between $ 100 and $ 300 dollars.
The frenzy of "Endgame" tickets shows how advanced the MCU post is following the huge change of "Avengers: Infinite War". The managing editor of Fandango, Erik Davis, revealed on social networks that the demand for opening weekend tickets was greater than he had ever seen. David described participation as a "historic and innovative achievement".
"I hesitate to call 'Avengers: Endgame' the most anticipated film of all time, but in all honesty the numbers it is publishing are extraordinary," Davis wrote. "I've been doing this for a while, you all know, and I've never seen anything like it before."
Disney is opening "Avengers: Endgame" in theaters across the country on April 26.
