The latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, has continued Marvel Studios’ fine run of box office form, with the Phase Two sequel having now passed $600 million worldwide.
With $205 million domestically, The Winter Soldier is now just $1 million away from overtaking the North American haul of Thor: The Dark World, while globally the Chris Evans-headlined sequel is fast approaching Iron Man 2 ($623.9 million) and Thor: The Dark World ($644.8 million).
Despite competition from rival superhero flick The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the Captain America sequel should have no problem overtaking Thor: The Dark World, which would make it the third-highest grossing Marvel Studios release behind The Avengers ($1.518 billion) and Iron Man 3 ($1.215 billion).
As it happens, The Winter Soldier also looks set to surpass Warner Bros. Superman reboot Man of Steel ($668 million), which would bode well for the big showdown between the two film’s sequels on May 6th, »
