Avengers: Infinity War is still collecting cash at the box office.

Marvel

The war is going pretty well for the Avengers. Avengers: Infinity War reached another box-office milestone on Tuesday, becoming the eighth film in history to earn more than $600 million at the domestic box office (that's US and Canada). 

The film is the third from Marvel Studios to do that, following 2012's The Avengers and 2018's Black Panther , Marvel Studios' parent Disney said in a statement.

The film opened on April 27, and has been tearing through the box office like Hulk rips through pairs of pants. 

It was the fastest movie ever to earn $1 billion at the global box office, crossing that mark just 11 days after its release, and it's earned more than $1.8 billion globally.
