While Sony are said to be hoping for an eventual $1 billion haul for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the comic book movie which is currently dominating theatres across the world is Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The sequel has today passed the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office with a grand total of $502.2 million. With over $167 million in North America and $335.2 million internationally, it's having no trouble beating 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger. That was far from a flop, but only a moderate success for Marvel Studios. These types of numbers however will make the Captain America franchise one of their biggest. The first instalment earned only $370 million in 2011, and there's still plenty of time for the sequel to earn an awful lot more! With over $80 million from China alone, the importance of that territory is also clear.

This and Avengers are definitely my top two MCU flicks, with IM1 coming in at a very close third!
BrotherStarkofMABMindz - 4/16/2014, 3:34 PM
HAIL, HYDRA!
TheRationalNerd - 4/16/2014, 3:35 PM
^^^ Just when I thought it was over...lol



ezio619 - 4/16/2014, 3:36 PM
GO CAPPPPPP!!!, it was a great film, it is now my favorite MCU film so far,its betean the Avengers for me cause while the character interactions,humor and action etc are well done and great in Avengers,its a GOOD definiton of a summer blockbuster, it is thin on plot while this film has everything, the action is fantastic, the humor is well done, the performances are great, the story is very engaging and interesting, same as the characters, nitpciks:some of the wrework and cg looked off, and my only complaint is while the fury car chase was amazing, it dragged a bit for me in the middle, Hopefully Cap stays on top for the mon th of april and hopefully Guardians of the galaxy follows suit and gives a great movie that deserves it success aswell
themidnightking - 4/16/2014, 3:39 PM
It deserves it and more
TheRationalNerd - 4/16/2014, 3:40 PM
This is my only question surrounding "Guardians of the Galaxy" Say I wanted to ave an MCU marathon leading up to Avengers 2? When exactly does GotG take place within the MCU? Is it as current as CA:TWS or is it supposed to be set before Avengers 3 or something??

TheRationalNerd - 4/16/2014, 3:41 PM
*have*
Praetorian - 4/16/2014, 3:41 PM
That's how you do an action sequence! Dramatic, tense and badass
themidnightking - 4/16/2014, 3:41 PM
I got so emotional watching Bucky and Cap duke it out on the Helicarrier
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/16/2014, 3:43 PM
Still didn't see it
TheDarkPassenger - 4/16/2014, 3:43 PM
'MERICA.
Destined - 4/16/2014, 3:44 PM
@Praetorian amen to that! I was all the way engrossed during that movie. Just excellent!
Omarvls - 4/16/2014, 3:44 PM
So there is a good chance by Monday Morning TWS could be at 600 Million World Wide in ONLY its 4th week Inter and 3rd Week Domestic
It is starting to seem like 700-750 final tally for the Best CBM Of All Time
rockerdude22 - 4/16/2014, 3:45 PM
Damn, reading this makes me want to go watch it again!
AlexanderLykins - 4/16/2014, 3:45 PM
How you like that Fox and Sony?
themidnightking - 4/16/2014, 3:45 PM
@TheDarkKnight1939
What?!
Destined - 4/16/2014, 3:46 PM
@midnightking my feels were all over the place watching those two man...and poor Bucky. My heart just went out to him. I so can't wait for Cap 3 just for that storyline alone. It's going to be good.
Killuminatic - 4/16/2014, 3:46 PM
@Darkknight See it.

This seems more suitable...


AlexanderLykins - 4/16/2014, 3:47 PM
@TheBlackNerd
That's why you go see the movie, right? I'm sure everything will be explained before it's released.
BasedThanos - 4/16/2014, 3:47 PM
I'm going thru withdrawal from this movie lmao. I saw it twice and I need to see it again.
SpiderFraud - 4/16/2014, 3:48 PM
Always great news that a superhero movie is making bank.

McNyagano - 4/16/2014, 3:48 PM
AWESOME news!

rockerdude22 - 4/16/2014, 3:48 PM
And wow, Sony are hoping a billion for TASM2? That's a pretty high expectation, but hey, you never know!
themidnightking - 4/16/2014, 3:50 PM
@Destined
Cap: "You're my friend."
Bucky: "You're my mission!"
Me: *sobbing* "Bucky no!"
kinghulk - 4/16/2014, 3:50 PM
is it still outpacing thor TDW?
Kurne - 4/16/2014, 3:50 PM
@TheBlackNerd

My plan is to watch Guardians as a side film (after my marathon). If not that, then I'll watch it after the first Avengers, get it out of the way.
DoubleD - 4/16/2014, 3:51 PM
OK Where are all those critics that kept say this movie would only make somewhere between 525 to 585 million.
DoubleD - 4/16/2014, 3:53 PM
Seen it 3 TIMES already. GREAT CBM
Sunnyd - 4/16/2014, 3:53 PM
Well deserved now if it can snag another 100 million I will be ecstatic.
I wish for a billion but 600 million is fantastic for such a great movie.
It may get it this weekend to because early word on Transcendence is its not that great.
Cheers Cap.
m0th3r - 4/16/2014, 3:53 PM
@DoubleD they have been silenced by the films greatness...So were do we stop here..700-800m? If this break a billion, and GoTG is great...could we see a 2B year for MCU...
0megaDaGod - 4/16/2014, 3:54 PM
Watching this AGAIN tomorrow.

Life is so damn good
TheRationalNerd - 4/16/2014, 3:55 PM
@AlexanderLykins

Wow really??! I never knew that?!!



But seriously, most of these MCU films have given an idea when each of their films take place. Seeing how far they are in space will actually determine whether our time here would even compare to theirs. I'm sure the writers/directors didn't think about this but oh well.
starblazed - 4/16/2014, 3:56 PM
Pretty amazing that a character called "CAPTAIN AMERICA" who dresses in an american flag costume has done so well internationally. I never thought they'd be able to get past the name. I guess Cap is kinda Springsteen's "BORN IN THE USA", mistaken for a "YAY 'MERICA" song until you actually listen to the lyrics. Not that we don't love you yanks ;)
