While it is possible that Captain America could do more money in the following weeks to pass Thor domestically. Its one foreign debut was a respectable $2.8 million in Italy. That's up 16 percent from the first Iron Man but way off from Thor's $5.6 million. All other foreign markets are expected to follow the same trend.

Fresh rating----------------Thor-----------------X-Men: F C----Green Lantern---Captain America

* not done being reviewed

This rating puts all but Green Lantern as "Fresh" but,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 and The biggest superhero movie of 2011.
