Cameron gives shout out to Endgame
Los Angeles: Filmmaker James Cameron has congratulated Marvel Studios after their superhero tentpole Avengers: Endgame dislodged Avatar to become the highest-grossing film at the worldwide box office.
Disney, which own Marvel Studios, announced on Sunday that the Anthony and Joe Russo-directed superhero epic, has surpassed the USD 2,789,700,000 earning figure of Avatar.
Cameron, 64, shared a art photo that showed Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man surrounded by Pandoran woodsprite seeds.
"Oel Ngati Kameie, I see you Marvel Congratulations to 'Avengers: Endgame' on becoming the new box office king," the filmmaker wrote in the caption.
Endgame has been in theatres for 13 weeks and Disney recently re-released the movie with additional footage.
The Russo brothers paid the compliment back to the veteran, saying that his work, which boasts of global blockbusters such as Alien, Terminator series and Titanic, inspired them to get into making movies. In May, Cameron had hailed the success of Endgame after it surpassed the earnings of his 1997 classic Titanic.
