People Are Selling 'Avengers: Endgame' Tickets for Nearly $10,000

By

Ticket scalpers are hoping people's love for everything Marvel will pay off in a big way before the box office premiere of Avengers: Endgame.

A strange thing has happened in the world of cinema since Iron Man debuted in 2008.

Superhero movies have always been box office magic, even when they were kinda abysmal. The Fantastic Four movies made bank at the box office. The Sam Raimi Spiderman films were campy and pretty terrible, save for Willem Dafoe, and they made so much cash that we got to see an "evil" Tobey Maguire dance scene in the third and final film of that cursed trilogy.

But Iron Man kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a big way and reshaped the movie-going experience forever. It seems there's a new superhero or villain movie coming out every month. In fact, there are even sub-categories of superhero flicks. BRIGHTBURN and Joker are intimate character study flicks rather than epic action-adventure films. Thor: Ragnarok and Deadpool are straight-up comedies. Logan was more a horror/western/father-daughter redemption story than an action flick.

But the Marvel films that seem to get fans the most excited are the big-budget, cross-universe extravaganzas known as the Avengers series.
