That's a big step up for the second adventure to topline Chris Evans' super-soldier Steve Rogers to date, no doubt helped by very positive reaction from fans and critics alike.

As such, the character's first appearance in 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger," is probably best described as a modest success, both critically (an enjoyably retro first half giving way to a flatter, more formless second), and commercially — at $370 million, it's the second lowest-grossing of the Marvel pictures so far.
