- Tickets just became available for “Avengers: Endgame,” which opens in theatres on April 26.
- It’s poised to become one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, since “Avengers: Infinity War” broke several box office records.
- Ticket sites like Fandango are already overloaded, with some theatres showing wait times of more than an hour to buy tickets.
- Fans are freaking out.
Tickets for “Avengers: Endgame” went on sale Tuesday morning. But to get your seat, you may have to wait.
“Avengers: Endgame” doesn’t open until April 26, but it’s already poised to be one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. The previous entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Avengers: Infinity War,” had the all-time biggest opening weekend both in the United States and worldwide, and marched up to the No. 4 spot for biggest total grosses domestically and worldwide, not adjusted for inflation.
With the mad rush to get theatre seats for “Endgame,” ticket retailers like Fandango had high wait times to buy tickets.
Some are seeing online wait times of an hour.

And some people couldn’t get the seats they wanted.
Woke up at 5 AM to buy Avengers Endgame tickets and within 3 minutes every seat in every showing is sold out.

Others planned to wake up earlier than usual to be the first in line.
