Director James Cameron congratulated “ Avengers : Endgame” Monday for beating his film “Avatar ” to become the highest – grossing movie of all time .
Marvel’ s superhero blockbuster ended the 10 – year reign of “ Avatar ” Sunday after its global box office haul rose to $ 2 . 7902 billion .
“ Oel ngati kameie , I see you Marvel, ” Cameron wrote, using a greeting in the fictional Na’ vi language of the alien moon Pandora of “ Avatar . ”
“Congratulations to Avengers Endgame on becoming the new box- office king , ” he added in a tweet showing an image of Marvel’ s Iron Man hero surrounded by Pandoran “ woodsprite ” plants.
“ Avatar, ” released in 2009 , made $ 2 . 7897 billion , including its original theatrical run and various re – releases .
It smashed a record previously set by Cameron for “Titanic ” 12 years earlier.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had already been full of praise for Cameron as “ Endgame” zeroed in on the record days earlier.
“ You have to shout out to James Cameron , who held that title for a long time , ” Feige told San Diego Comic – Con, the world ’ s biggest pop culture fan convention , on Saturday .
“ If you adjust for inflation he still holds the title , and he ’ ll probably get the title again as soon as he puts out another movie . ”
Cameron is working on four sequels to “Avatar , ” with the first follow – up due December 2021 and “Avatar 5 ” expected in late 2027 .
Both “ Avatar ” and “Endgame ” are now owned by Disney following its takeover of 21st Century Fox.
