Despite early estimates that Captain America had opened with $65,800,00 making it open almost $100,000 higher than Thor. Boxofficemojo.com has listed the actual openings for this years comicbook fare as totaling:

Domestic Summary-Thor-------X-Men: F C-----Green Lantern---Captain America
Total Wk________$65,723,338____$55,101,604___$53,174,303______$65,058,524


Total Domestic totals are as follows:

Domestic Summary-Thor-----------------X-Men: F C---------Green Lantern--------Captain America
Total Gross______$180,580,795____$144,723,842__$114,327,614_____$117,421,571*

*still in theaters will go higher

While it was thought that Captain America would have done more domestically its daily total dropped dramatically this week -60.7% to lose its lead on Thor and fall behind Thor by 2 million in 10 day totals.
Thor dropped only -47.2% after 10 days for $119,455,352 to Cap's $117,421,571
At this pace Cap should end up at 170 plus million just behind Wolverine as Marvel's number ten bread winner all-time!

Worldwide Summary---Thor--------------X-Men: F C---------Green Lantern--------Captain America
Worldwide Gross_____$447,747,355___$348,529,513__$154,427,614___$170,921,571*
Foreign Gross_______$267,166,560___$203,805,671__$40,100,000**____ $53,500,000**

*still in theaters will go higher
**not yet released in all foreign markets

While money is not the only determining factor for a films success as seen in Rottentomatoes.com user ratings Thor and Cap are in a basic tie behind X-men first class.

Fresh rating----------------Thor-----------------X-Men: F C----Green Lantern---Captain America
____________________77%____________86%___________26%_____________78%



This rating puts all but Green Lantern as "Fresh". And GL's being included in Time magazine's top 10 all time worst blockbusters does not help the movies overseas outlook. Reviews are subjective and lets face it ratings do not pay the bills.

If Captain America can get a decent total overseas, all Marvel films can be considered a success.This leaves Green Lantern as the only disappointment of this years superhero releases for DC.

Thor on the other hand has passed Wolverine($179,883,157) domestically even though Wolvie has a bigger fan base. Making Thor Marvel's #8 film domestically and #3 all time non-sequel release.With Captain America Lagging behind at home and not shutting out the Son of Odin across the pond. Now even more than last week it can be said:
THOR IS THE BIGGEST SUPERHERO MOVIE OF 2011!
