Directors Joe and Anthony Russo received death threats from fans due to Hawkeye's absence in "Avengers: Infinity War", Jeremy Renner revealed. The Marvel tentpole now stands as the fourth highest-grossing film of all time, unadjusted for inflation, behind Avatar ($2.79 billion), Titanic ($2.19 billion), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.07 billion). "Infinity War" nabbed a record $640 million global opening and reached the $1 billion mark in a record 11 days.
Hawkeye, played by actor Jeremy Renner, was absent from most of the marketing material for Avengers: Infinity War and did not appear in the final film, leaving many fans curious about the character's whereabouts and well-being. It holds the record for biggest domestic debut ever with $257.7 million in its opening weekend on April 27 to April 29, topping "The Force Awakens" by almost $10 million.
So can Infinity War catch Force Awakens? Moreover, it was hardly a laborious line-cross for Infinity War, which opened back on April 27, and is still riding momentum.
Avengers: Infinity War is now playing everywhere. In China, the film's $369.7 million gross to date ranks third all-time.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is celebrating its tenth anniversary and will count $17 billion overall at the global box office by the end of this summer.

The expectations from Avengers: Infinity War were definitely sky-high and given the opening boost of the film, it will fall a bit short of them.
