According to The Hollywood Reporter, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has now stormed past the $600 million mark worldwide, outperforming the first instalment of the Marvel Studios franchise by an incredible 158%. After earning over $100 million in China (its second highest grossing territory outside of North America), the movie has also earned a whopping $205.3 million domestically. Add the latter to the $396.3 million overseas - meaning that, yes, it is just a day or so away from passing $400 million internationally - and you have a $600 million haul which makes this one of Marvel's most successful solo outings yet. Now it just remains to be seen whether or not it will surpass Thor: The Dark World ($644.8 million) and Iron Man 2 ($623.9 million)! The site believes that Captain America: The Winter Soldier will in fact double Captain America: The First Avenger's $371 million though, so it more »
Paul Walker's brothers, Cody and Caleb, will act as body doubles for the recently deceased actor to help complete Fast & Furious 7. Director James Wan says Walker had completed all of police detective-turned-bandit Brian O'Connor's scenes, and the brothers will be only used to fill the "small gaps" that remain, using CGI where needed to transform them into Paul. It's actually not the first time that body doubles and special effects have been used - it's not even the first time a brother has been used. Here are five movies that should make you feel confident that FF7 's adjustments will be seamless and look good.
1. Oliver Reed, Gladiator. Director Ridley Scott was in a pinch when Reed died from a heart attack before his scenes were completed. Scott used a body doubles and CGI to complete the additional two minutes of Reed's face time, but he had another »

For comparison’s sake, this sequel — directed by Anthony and Joe Russo — has already outearned 2011′s Captain America: The First Avenger, which ended its run with $176.65 million.
What’s the real takeaway from all this? That for all the idle chatter of audience superhero fatigue, no one is going to be putting away the spandex just yet. It will be »

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 »

Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier has had a second stellar weekend at the box office.
That makes it two worldwide weekends in a row at over $100 million and nearly half a billion to date as it continues to draw audiences internationally and in North America. With the success of directors Joe and Anthony Russo’s sequel , Marvel/Disney have officially announced Captain America 3 will open on May 6, 2016.
About two years have passed since the alien invasion of New York was repulsed by Nick Fury’s special team – The Avengers. The world is now well aware that extra-terrestrials, godlike beings and monsters may be lurking in the cosmos and that Super Heroes walk among us. The demand for protection of the world’s citizenry has reached a zenith. In response to the world’s justifiable fears, S.H.I.E.L.D. has expanded its presence to enhance the security of Earth. »

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. »
