'Avengers' Box Office Takes Big Hit from Fight Night Craze

While it is going to have one of the biggest opening weekends in movie history, The Avengers: Age of Ultron is reportedly taking a major hit at the box office due to everyone staying home and watching the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight!

After earning a massive $84.46 million on opening day, some industry experts were pegging the full weekend to hit as much as $210-$220 million.

Due to movie watchers spending their Saturdays watching all the sporting events on television – the NBA playoffs, the Kentucky Derby, and of course the big fight – the weekend gross estimates are coming in at $189-$191 million now, according to Deadline.

The first Avengers movie currently holds the record for the biggest opening weekend ever with $207 million. Even if the new film doesn’t beat the record, we have a feeling all the people staying home this weekend will eventually see the movie as audiences are loving it!

Joss Whedon Talks THAT 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Shocker - Spoilers Ahead!

The Avengers: Age of Ultron is set to achieve the highest grossing opening weekend of all time, so let’s talk about the shocking moment at the end of the film.

There has been tons of speculation over the past few months that one of the superheroes in the film was going to die and it was true.

Director Joss Whedon has spoken out about why the death scene happened in an interview with Merlot Mommy. You can read that after the cut!

In the film, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, but things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron (voice of James Spader) emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for a global adventure.

Where Was Loki?! 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Does Not Feature Tom Hiddleston's Villain!

If you’re going to see The Avengers: Age of Ultron this weekend, don’t get your hopes up about seeing an appearance from Tom Hiddleston‘s character Loki!

The film’s director Joss Whedon is explaining why Loki has been cut from the film, even though Tom did film a scene for it.

“We did shoot something, but it didn’t play,” he told MTV News. “The movie has so much. It’s so filled. We didn’t want it to feel overstuffed. I really wanted to have Loki in it, but I understood the decision that there were now too many voices in the chorus.”

“At some point the embarrassment of riches is actually embarrassing,” Joss laughingly added.

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Post-Credits Scene - All the Details!

Remember how Joss Whedon said there would be no post-credits scene for Avengers: Age of Ultron? Well that is sort of a lie.

While there wasn’t a scene at the very end of the credits, there was one in the middle of the credits — so make sure you stay to catch it.

In the scene, Thanos — a Mad Titan that originated in the comic books — put on his Infinity Gauntlet and said “Fine, I’ll do it myself,” before the screen cut to black.

With two Infinity War movies coming up, it looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more of Thanos in the upcoming years.

In case you don’t remember, this isn’t the first time Thanos was featured in a post-credits scene, he was also in a scene at the end of the first Avengers movie.
