Move over, “Avengers: Age of Ultron!” According to Deadline, “Captain America: Civil War” is on track to pull in a whopping $190m-$200m at the domestic box office in its opening weekend, potentially overtaking “Age of Ultron’s” $191.3m debut.
In comparison, past Marvel films have opened to similarly strong numbers, like “Avengers'” $207.4m and “Iron Man 3’s” $174.1m. “Civil War,” which currently stands at 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, has already scored $224.3m overseas since last Wednesday.
Additionally, Fandango reports that “Civil War” has broken their record for advance ticket sales; at the time of publication, the film accounts for 90% of their weekend tickets sales.
Though technically a sequel to “Captain America’s” second solo outing “The Winter Solider,” the movie boasts an impressive list of characters, including Iron Man, Black Widow, Falcon and Bucky Barnes. It will also introduce several new characters, like Black Panther. The film also marks Spider-Man’s Marvel Cinematic Universe debut.
