Marvel's latest superhero outing doesn't hit U.S. theaters until Friday, but it's already breaking records.
"Captain America: Civil War" -- the 13th entry in Marvel's cinematic universe -- has now sold more advance tickets than any other superhero film, according to Fandango, taking the No. 1 spot over both "Avengers" films and March's "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice." The sequel is also responsible for 90 percent of this weekend's advanced sales.
"With an 'Avengers'-sized ensemble cast, stellar advance reviews, the introduction of a new Spider-Man and new characters like Black Panther, the widespread anticipation for Thursday night's debut of 'Captain America: Civil War' is massive," Fandango managing editor Erik Davis says.
"Already hailed as Marvel's best movie yet, Cap and friends can add a new notch in their belts with more advance tickets sold for 'Civil War' than for any other superhero movie in Fandango's 16-year history."
"Captain America: Civil War" has already earned $241 million overseas after opening in the U.K. and other foreign territories last week and currently has a comfortable 92 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
