Released in late April, Infinity War brought together every Marvel hero (except Ant-Man, Hawkeye, and Captain Marvel) to fight against Thanos (played by Josh Brolin), who wanted to unite all six Infinity Stones and wipe out half of all life in the universe.
On that front, they weren't successful, but the Russo Brothers-directed feature took in more than $2 billion at the global box office. The fourth Avengers film will bow next May, while Infinity War hits home video July 31.
