Disney-Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” has the $1 billion worldwide box office milestone in its sights as the tentpole took in $156 million this weekend.

“Captain America: Civil War” has also moved the 13-title Marvel Cinematic Universe past $10 billion worldwide, taken in over the past nine years.

“Civil War,” which began its international run on April 27, topped the $940 million mark in worldwide box office on Sunday. By the end of this week, it should become the 25th title to exceed $1 billion, and the seventh superhero title after “The Avengers” ($1.52 billion), “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($1.41 billion), “Iron Man 3” ($1.22 billion), “The Dark Knight Rises” ($1.09 billion) and “The Dark Knight” ($1.04 billion).

The ten-day domestic total of $296 million for “Captain America: Civil War” has already gone far past the final cumes of the previous two titles in the franchise — 2011’s “Captain America” at $177 million and 2014’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” at $260 million.

With Chris Evans returning in the title role in a face-off with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, the franchise is showing plenty of traction outside the U.S. Its international total has hit $645 million, making “Civil War” the fourth-highest -grossing superhero movie of all time behind “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($946 million), “The Avengers” ($895 million) and “Iron Man 3” ($806 million).

China is the top international market by far with $155.8 million in ten days, making it the third-highest-grossing Disney release there behind “Zootopia” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” South Korea is second with $60.1 million, followed by the U.K. at $46.7 million, Mexico at $39.2 million and Brazil at $32.9 million.

    The amount of money Disney is generating in theatres right now is simply ridiculous.

  2. hornacek says:

    DC and Zack Snyder are looking at these figures and wondering how BvS has made just under this amount in its entire run, while Civil War made that much in only 2 weeks.

  3. Steve says:

    Wow. This could make more money than Star Wars. Better movie as well.

  4. Joe says:

    Warner Bros must be crying at this point.

    • Mike says:

      Nah, BvS will still make some money. But they went at it back asswards, starting out with “their Avengers” without laying any of the groundwork to get people interested.
      While CA:CW is a better movie, as a movie going experience I enjoyed BvS just as much, and the visuals were much more interesting and engaging. It’s not a bad movie, but the audience has only the built in historical appeal of the characters invested, not the cumulative storytelling from 12 movies as is the case with CA:CW. It’s just not enough to get people to move their butts to the theater, when super hero movies with stories they’ve already invested time and money in are continuing all the time.

    Disney’s lucky year.

  6. JOE S HILL says:

    As predicted,”CAPTAIN AMERICA:CIVIL WARS” has exceeded the fiscal expectations at the Box Office,and is continuing to make its mark! but as a comicbook fan,more from the past time,then our present,i still enjoy “BATMAN v SUPERMAN:DAWN OF JUSTICE”,despite the movie failing to generate the larger fiscal numbers that its competition did! eventually at some point,DC and Warner Bros. will reach this level,and i hope they do-but Marvel and Walt Disney Studios are still the Box Office dominators,and the “CIVIL WARS” story will likely be continued in another follow-up movie,down the road! now,we have “X-MEN:APOCALYPSE” to look forward to,later in the month,and some months now,until Warners’ “SUICIDE SQUAD” is released,,so it’ll be an interesting Box Office adventure,for sure!
