“The Avengers” has already passed the total foreign box office gross for “Captain America,” which earned $192 million.

“I always wanted to change the definition of the superhero movie,” Marvel topper Kevin Feige recently told Variety. “We don’t take any of (our success) for granted.”

Opening May 4 in the U.S., “The Avengers” has a good chance of surpassing “The Hunger Games” as the largest domestic opening of the year. Lionsgate’s “Hunger Games” opened to a boffo $155 million at the end of march.

Disney and Imax also announced Thursday that “The Avengers” will open in 275 Imax locations in the U.S.

Directed by Joss Whedon, “The Avengers” features an all-star cast of Marvel superheroes, including Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth).
