Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige tweeted congratulations to the team behind “Jurassic World,” which overtook “Avengers” for the biggest domestic box office opening in history.

After the dino sequel took in $208.8 million during its opening weekend, just above “Avengers'” $207.4 million, Feige tweeted a picture of “Jurassic World” star Chris Pratt riding a T-Rex that holds Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, while the Avengers look on in wonder.

The Marvel executive called out “Jurassic World” executive producer Steven Spielberg, Universal Pictures, Legendary Pictures, producer Frank Marshall, director Colin Trevorrow and Pratt.

Feige’s good-natured response to the news surely could be attributed to Pratt’s huge success in 2014 as star of Marvel’s summer blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the fact that the star will most likely appear in the 2017 sequel. To date, the first “Guardians” has grossed $774.1 million globally.
