The Avengers will break yet another record this week    it’s about to become the highest-grossing superhero movie domestically, surpassing The Dark Knight, and making it the third-highest grossing movie of all time.

Unless a supervillain invades and destroys all the movie theaters, The Avengers will break the record with ease. It busted through the $500 million mark in just 23 days, which took The Dark Knight a poky 45 days to hit.

So will The Avengers make it to the top? Unlikely  its returns are slowing down, unlike reigning champ Avatar, which stayed solid week to week for ages. And, of course, The Dark Knight has a sequel coming out soon. So Batman may win this thing yet.
