So this is now the 4th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to achieve such heights, the others being The Avengers ($1.519 billion), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.405 billion) and Iron Man 3 ($1.215 billion). Civil War also helped push the combined worldwide gross of the MCU past $10 billion, which comes down to an average of about $775 million a movie (they’ve released 13 so far). Ultimately Captain America: Civil War should easily overtake Iron Man 3 and finish somewhere around $1.3 billion worldwide. At this point only Rogue One: A Star Wars Story could possibly earn more in 2016. What’s really crazy is by the end of the year Disney could have the entire top 5, with Civil War, Zootopia ($974.9 million), The Jungle Book ($839.7 million), Finding Dory and of course Rogue One, all likely to finish above $1 billion (or very close to that number in some cases).
