“Avengers: Age of Ultron” scored the second biggest opening weekend in North America – ever. It grossed more than $187 million, according to Rentrak.

Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Rentrak, says that gives Marvel the top three spots for all-time North American openers. “Marvel’s The Avengers” still holds the record with $207.4 million, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is second and “Iron Man 3” third with $174.1 million. This is why they make movies based on comic book characters.

“This is an astonishing feat considering the level of competition this weekend from the world of sports with the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, the Kentucky Derby and the NBA playoffs,” he said. “Avengers: Age of Ultron” has chalked up $627 million globally; it opened overseas before debuting in the States.
