Tickets for the highly anticipated third Avengers film, Avengers: Infinity War, went on sale this morning, coinciding with the release of the epic second full-length trailer for the film, and the advanced ticket sales are already smashing records.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the advanced ticket sales on Avengers: Infinity War have set a new record on online ticket retailer Fandango, becoming the fastest selling superhero film in the first 24 hours of presales, and it only took six hours. Infinity War takes over the top spot from Warner Bros. and DC Films’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

2018 is setting up to be a banner year for the MCU with Black Panther already grossing more than $1.1 billion worldwide going into its 5th weekend at the box office. If the current advanced ticket sales on Avengers: Infinity War are any indication, Infinity War will be on pace to completely smash the numerous records that were just set by Black Panther, and perhaps more.
