James Cameron salutes 'Endgame' for sinking 'Titanic' record
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Filmmaker James Cameron has no bad blood with the Avengers, even though "Endgame" has eclipsed "Titanic's" worldwide record and bumped the 1997 blockbuster to third place.
Cameron tweeted a note Wednesday to Marvel president Kevin Feige and its employees congratulating the company for its success. Cameron writes that an iceberg sank the real Titanic, but it took the Avengers to sink his "Titanic."

The studio, he says, has shown that the movie industry is alive and well and bigger than ever. But "Avengers: Endgame" still has another Cameron film to conquer to get to the top. "Avatar" remains the highest-grossing film of all time with $2.8 billion worldwide, not accounting for inflation.
"Avengers: Endgame" has earned $2.3 billion.
