To congratulate its success, Avatar director James Cameron paid tribute to the Marvel film on Twitter. A tweet showed Iron Man surrounded by woodsprite seeds from the film’s Tree of Souls, with the caption, “Oel Ngati Kameie,” an old Na’vi saying meaning “I see you.”
The tweet added, “I see you, Marvel. Congratulations to Avengers: Endgame on becoming the new box-office king.”
Cameron did the same thing when Endgame beat Titanic. In a tweet, he said, “An iceberg sank the real Titanic. It took the Avengers to sink my Titanic.”
