Spoilers ahead for “Avengers: Endgame”!

In just 11 days, it’s earned $2.188 billion worldwide, bumping “Titanic” out of the second spot. For an understanding of how crazy this is, it took the current highest-grossing film of all-time, “Avatar,” 47 days to reach that same point.

The latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe also delivered an estimated $145.8 million domestically in its second weekend in theaters. The movie’s total domestic gross now stands at just under $620 million.

In addition to those accolades, “Endgame” had the best weekend opening of all-time and best Thursday pre-sale as well. Lots of records falling to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Also Monday, a new “Spider-Man: Far From Home” trailer debuted that shows Peter Parker dealing with the ending of “Endgame,” specifically the loss of his mentor and Marvel icon Iron Man.

At the end of “Endgame,” Tony Stark used the infinity stones to snap Thanos and his crew out of existence. The power of the stones was too much and Stark died with Spider-Man and the rest of the MCU looking on.

In the new clip, Parker says, “Everywhere I go I see his face. I just really miss him.”

After some heartfelt words with Stark’s friend Happy Hogan, Parker goes on vacation, but the fun doesn’t last. While there looks to be a budding romance with MJ, Parker’s fun is interrupted by Nick Fury bringing Spidey an assignment.

Jake Gyllenhaal is working with Fury as he’s from another Earth?? Apparently Stark’s snap tore a hole in the dimension.

This puts the whole Mysterio/villain thing into question as the two become allies, but maybe it’s all a hoax. We’ll see.

“The world needs the next Iron Man,” Parker says, as Fury asks if he’s “going to step up or not.”

You then see Spidey and Mysterio teaming up, fighting all kinds of monsters.

“Far From Home” hits theaters on July 2.

ABC News and Marvel are both part of parent company Disney.
