I'd think the likelihood of Avengers overtaking Titanic is slim, it'd have to make anoiher $100m during it's run in the theaters which I'm not sure it'll keep the momentum to do.
It all depends on how long The Avengers stays in theaters. If it sticks around for as long as The Dark Knight did (select theaters continued to run it a full three months after it was released on DVD), then it very well could make up the difference. Let's assume for the moment that the DVD/Blu-Ray comes to us in September. That'd leave it in some theaters until December.
It might stay in theatres for that long, but it will be on so few screens (and, mainly, discount screens) that it's pretty unlikely it will be able to make enough money to beat Titanic. Still an impressive showing at the box office, though, no doubt about that. The Dark Knight Rises will have a hard time beating it (especially with a running time close to three hours).
Also the longer the movie stays in theaters the less the studio gets compared to the theater itself.

Dunno, but he must go with Black Widow.

Also... Joss Whedon Torn Over Directing Avengers 2

"You know, I'm very torn. It’s an enormous amount of work telling what is ultimately somebody else’s story, even though I feel like I did get to put myself into it. But at the same time, I have a bunch of ideas, and they all seem really cool."
Read: "If you want me for Avengers 2 - MOAR MONEY NAO!" (IE - it's a 'lets negotiate" kind of statement.)

Nothing bad per se - just business as usual in Hollywood.

Didn't notice that. Who is Dead Husband? A Black Widow in-joke?

Black Widows usually kill their mates after mating. I don't think the joke has anything to do with the Black Widow character.

Avengers will probably wind up in the 650 million dollar range domestically. Not too shabby.
That'd be great. I'll be pleased enough to see it become just the third film to cross the $600 million mark.

Did you guys know about this AWESOME Dr Pepper can set with all the Avengers?

I just finished collecting my own set. Took me a couple of weeks to find all eight characters, but now it is sitting on a table next to my computer! Score!

I'm still stunned that Avengers made more money in one weekend than Thor or Captain America ever did. Insane!

Now that is one cool exclusive piece.
I'm waiting for someone to put the old school GI Joe USS Flagg beside it for comparison!!
