Marvel's plans to introduce the first Muslim superhero in a future film

Haven't watched Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War? Infinity War eclipses The Fate of the Furious in United States dollars due to an exchange rate discrepancy, but the latter still earned more in the local currency. That debut finally took place this weekend and the numbers were absolutely extraordinary.

The Disney release earned $62 million domestic, topping the weekend gross chart for the third week in a row. In North American currency, that makes the film the highest opener for a Hollywood film.

Domestically, "Infinity War" grossed $61.8 million last weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday, to win its third straight weekend. Avatar still commands the worldwide list with a whopping $2.7 billion. It's here that Deadpool notes that, when you make a sequel, you have to, in his words, "double down on your promotions, or you just get buried by Infinity War".

Within 11 days, it became the fastest film to hit $1 billion in global sales, besting "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", which hit $1 billion in global sales.
