Disney's "Avengers: Endgame" had enough fight to win its first big battle at the domestic box office.
Now in its third weekend in theaters, the Marvel superheroes came up against its first worthy opponent in Warner Bros.' "Pokémon: Detective Pikachu" this weekend. But "Endgame" was able to keep the top spot at the box office for a third-straight weekend, taking in $63.1 million to the healthy $58 million brought in by the Ryan Reynolds-voiced Pokémon character.
The Disney win comes despite "Pikachu" winning the Friday box office, taking in $20.7 million (including $5.7 million in Thursday previews), while "Endgame" took in $16 million. But the fandom for the MCU was still strong, as the movie took in $27.4 million on Saturday, passing "Pikachu," which earned $$20.5 million on the day.
