Captain America Wins in U.S.

Marvel can add another blockbuster to its belt–Captain America: The Winter Soldier brought in $96.2 million in its first weekend in the U.S., according to Box Office Mojo.

Stealing the No. 1 spot from Noah, the latest Marvel superhero epic broke the record for April, which was previously held by Fast Five (2011, $86.6 million).

The sequel saw a 48 percent bump from the domestic debut of the first Captain America film, and beat November’s Thor: The Dark World’s opening weekend by $6.5 million.

The film has been out in international markets since March 27 and has brought in a total of $303 million worldwide to-date.
