With the showdown coming in May of 2016 between Captain America 3 and the untitled sequel to Man of Steel, Marvel Studios has won the first battle as Captain America: The Winter Soldier has surpassed the box office sales of the new Superman movie.
Captain America 2 has made over $703 million compared to Man of Steel's $668 million last Summer.
To date, Man of Steel is still doing slightly better than Captain America 2 domestically (about a $40 million difference), but Cap 2 manages to overcome internationally with about a $75 million surplus.
Warner Bros. has since added both Batman and Wonder Woman to the Man of Steel "Batman Vs. Superman" sequel as well as more rumored cast featuring the Justice League, with it known a Justice League movie will follow directed by Zack Snyder.
Marvel Studios announced Captain America 3 for a May 6th release, with Warner Bros. following in hot pursuit by announcing Batman Vs. Superman on the same date.
Both sides have said they are not changing the release date for their films, but it's guessed Marvel will most likely bow out as it's really a no-brainer that the new Batman (Ben Affleck) as well as Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) on screen with Superman for the first time would be hard to compete against.
Amazing Spider-Man 2 has also recently crossed the $633 million mark with a strong international showing ($461 million).
