Avengers: Endgame ticket sales have been in such high demand that ticket sellers' websites have given way under the deluge of people attempting to buy them.
As such, some people have turned to more creative ways of getting tickets: the secondary market.
Some people are so determined to see the movie on opening night that they are willing to pay a markup to buy someone else's tickets. In some instances, that markup has been thousands of dollars!
One Twitter user recieved this message when attempting to buy tickets to the advance screening:

Prices being asked for the tickets on eBay vary by location: from as low as $500 in New Jersey to $9,199 in New York City!

If you are a huge Marvel fan with an equally huge amount of disposable income, I suppose those prices might seem acceptable.
To the rest of the world, though, it's probably best to just wait a couple of days.
