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. »

Come With Me To Days Of Future Past!
Did anyone else notice that the last trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past was scored by a remix of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” but at a faster tempo with modern instrumentation, so it instantly called to mind the last modernized-up-tempo “Kashmir.” It was called “Come With Me” and was a track for 1998′s Godzilla.
Check out the video for that, in case you don’t remember.
Ok, then here’s the Days of Future Past “final trailer”

While Marvel’s first foray into television, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., may not have been quite the success that everyone was hoping for, ABC isn’t giving up on the studio just yet. With Agents slowly improving as the series goes on, there’s a good chance the network will pick the show up for a second season, and rumor has it that another Marvel series may come along with it.
Of course, I’m talking about Agent Carter, which Deadline reports may be nearing a series order. The show will reportedly forgo a pilot order and begin this winter, while Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is on hiatus between the fall and spring.
Based on the Marvel One-Shot of the same name, Agent Carter will presumably take place in the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D., after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. The short film focused »

In a strange turn of events, Rio 2 took first place at the box office on Friday, but fell back to second place for the three-day weekend. Chalk this up to nice weather throughout most of the country, which kept family audiences away from the multiplexes on Saturday.As a result, Captain America: The Winter Soldier was able to narrowly hold on to the top spot for the second-straight weekend. The superhero sequel added $41.3 million, which was off 57 percent from its debut. That's about on par with Iron Man 3 (58 percent) and Thor: The Dark World (57 percent), but it's also a bit worse than the movie's strong reviews and word-of-mouth would suggest. So far, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has earned $158.9 million at the domestic box office. If it remains on pace with the Thor and Iron Man sequels, it will finish with at least $225 million.Playing at 3,948 locations, Rio 2 »

Thomas Roach with eight predictions for the Marvel Cinematic Universe…
Through years of planning and a chain of successes Marvel Studios has delivered films that both excel at the box office and please their fans. Unlike the other superhero movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has all these characters existing in the same universe and crossing over into each other’s films – this started with Iron Man back in 2008 and the standalone films led to the first Avengers film which saw these extraordinary characters team up.
The success is trying to be imitated by Warner Bros. with the DC cinematic universe and Fox who have ambitions of a shared universe between X-Men and Fantastic Four – the only Marvel properties they own. Marvel Studios has definitely got it right though where the others fail. It is a great time for Marvel Studios and there is no sign of this slowing down any time soon. »

As expecteed, animated feature Rio 2 is indeed set to take the top spot at the North American box office this weekend, beating Captain America: The Winter Soldier during its second week of release. According to Deadline, the Marvel Studios sequel is expected to drop around 59%, but that's not too bad, especially as Captain America: The First Avenger dropped 61% and Thor: The Dark World suffered a 57% dip.

In China alone, Captain America: The Winter Soldier took $39.2 million during its debut, and strong upcoming openings in Brazil and Japan should add even more to its total. After this weekend, the domestic total will be over $175 million. Going back to this weekend, Rio 2 will likely earn »

The early numbers represent positive news for both titles with many moviegoers starting on Easter week holidays.
“Winter Soldier,” which grossed $117.6 million domestically in its first week, is holding impressively with a projected weekend-to-weekend decline of 53% — a much better hold than 2011′s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” which slid 61% in its second frame to $25 million.

Film Sketchr chatted with conceptual illustrator James Carson, who has previously worked on Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor. This time the focus was on his latest project, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. James was tasked with the responsibility of helping to design key sets seen in the film like, the Triskelion (primary headquarters for S.H.I.E.L.D.), Steve Rogers apartment and Nick Fury's operating room. For the full interview click here. Film Sketchr: The Triskelion has been a feature of the Ultimates comic books since 2002. Was there anything that you took from the source? James Carson: We used the comic references sparingly. It seemed like many of the comic book images were more of a futuristic type design. Production Designer Peter Wenham felt early on that the Triskelion should be grounded in modern day sensibilities, and also representational of what S.H.E. »
