How Does The Avengers Opening Weekend Total Measure Up?

Turns out that even factoring in inflation numbers (shown in gray) Marvel's The Avengers still out earned all previous movies based on Marvel or DC properties. Including inflation, The Dark Knight remains in second place with $175 million narrowly edging out Spider-Man 3's adjusted total of $174 million. At this point, a $500+ million total for The Avengers is all but assured - it should be sitting near $375 million by the end of this coming weekend. The question that remains is whether or not it will exceed The Dark Knight's adjusted take of $588 million to become the all time superhero box office champ.
