Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters April 26
Haven’t booked your tickets for Avengers: Endgame yet? eBay has you covered — for a hefty price tag.
Tickets for the latest Marvel epic may be the hottest commodity with wait times, on sites like Fandango and AMC, that lasted over an hour on Tuesday when they went on sale.
Now, desperate fans are resorting to bidding wars for tickets to see the film on eBay.
A bid for two AMC dine-in tickets in Essex, New Jersey has a starting bid of $2,500 — but die-hard fans with deep pockets can skip the auction for a mere $15,000.
Avengers: Endgame is arguably the most anticipated film of 2019 with movie ticket services such as Fandango, AMC Theaters and Atom Tickets crashing due to a high volume of fans searching for seats.
On Tuesday, it took just six hours for the Marvel film to break Fandango’s presale ticket records, surpassing three Star Wars films (The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and Rogue One) and 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, which came in fifth.
Black Panther star Winston Duke teased the film would be “bigger” than last year’s blockbuster hit Infinity War.
“Honestly, what I can tell you is that it’s bigger than Infinity War … It’s going to be a lot of fun, going to be crazy, and they have a way of still topping themselves when you feel like they might have jumped the shark,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “They still have a way of making it new.”
Marvel has been dominating the box office this year, with its last release, Captain Marvel, surpassing $1 billion in ticket sales at the worldwide box office, Variety reported.
With Brie Larson at the helm, Captain Marvel is just the seventh MCU film to break into the billion-dollar club, following Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, The Avengers, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Iron Man 3, according to Variety.
