That translates to an additional 2 million hits over a seven-day period, not including the normal number of "Avengers" queries on Pornhub.  For comparison's sake, the release of 2018's Avengers: Infinity War sparked a 356-percent increase in related searches. 

Pornhub Statisticians also provided data on the popularity of individual characters. A second graph, below, shows that Captain Marvel was by far the most-searched superhero, while Black Panther and Spider Man rounded out the top three after a considerable drop-off.

Of course, Avengers: Endgame proved to be ridiculously popular on the silver screen as well. 

Bolstered by rave critical reviews, the franchise finale shattered the record for the biggest opening weekend of all time, with an estimated $350 million ticket sales domestically and $1.2 billion globally. 

According to Fox News, it surpassed projected sales by around $100 million and dethroned Avengers: Infinity War, which had previously set the record at $257.7 million
