Marvel's THE AVENGERS has crossed the US$1 billion threshold at the global box office on May 13, its 19th day in release, The Walt Disney Studios has announced. This is the first Marvel Studios film and the fifth Walt Disney Studios release to reach this important milestone.

"We're obviously thrilled with the global success of THE AVENGERS," said Robert A. Iger, Disney's Chairman and CEO. "It's a fantastic movie and an extraordinary franchise that will continue with more great stories and compelling characters for years to come."

Internationally, Marvel's THE AVENGERS began opening April 25, and is the biggest opening weekend of all time in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, Central America, Peru, Bolivia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, and United Arab Emirates. Marvel's THE AVENGERS has now opened in all major markets except Japan (17 August).

In Singapore, Marvel's THE AVENGERS recorded the biggest opening day of all time and its cumulative gross box-office as of 13 May is S$10.7 million. It is currently ranked the #3 All-Time Biggest Title in Singapore, following closely behind Avatar and Transformers: Dark of the Moon in only 13 days of release.

A sequel to last summer's Thor is scheduled for release in Singapore on 14 November 2013, and the installment of the hit Iron Man series, which has earned over US$1.2 billion worldwide, will arrive in Singapore theaters on next year's Labour Day.
