New Disney (DIS +1.1%) flick The Avengers opened to international audiences at a record-setting pace, according to early box office reports. Though the film doesn't hit stateside until May 4, pre-sales in the U.S. are also exceptionally brisk. The movie is the first offering from Marvel Comics to be marketed and distributed by Disney, with hopes running high it will make up for the John Carter debacle.

    The John Carter movie is a debacle domestically but internationally it is a semi-hit saving DIS studios some embarrassment, which belies the recent hype of the resignation of the President of Disney Studios. In other words Avengers has been critically acclaimed for sometime so his resignation has to go beyond John Carter.
