Avengers to Assemble Box Office Record?

With $80.5 Million banked on Friday alone, The Avengers looks likely to reach $175 to $180 Million this weekend which would be the biggest ever - bigger than HP7-2's $169 Million and bigger than The Dark Knight's $158 million. Not only would this put Marvel's The Avengers on track to become Marvel Studio's biggest movie yet, but it will already have nearly surpassed the domestic totals for Thor, Incredible Hulk, and Captain America. Impressive. Will the Dark Knight Rise to the challenge and retake the record?

Riddle me this? When is a museum like a balloon? Well, now I know! This episode had it all, riddles galore, The Riddler, Batgirl (in a double disguise), a giant crotch saw, and egg-splosives. Even though the series was nearly out of steam, this episode was a hit.
