Taking advantage of July's strong weekday business, Captain America: The First Avenger drew $7.8 million on Tuesday, extending its lead over Thor as Summer 2011's fastest-grossing superhero movie. Captain's generated $80.6 million in five days, compared to Thor's $76.5 million, X-Men: First Class's $65.6 million and Green Lantern's $63.3 million at the same point. So it's been a solid run for the Marvel Comics movie thus far, but it's not to be overstated: Captain's estimated five-day attendance lies slightly ahead of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and slightly behind The Incredible Hulk.
Worldwide, Deathly Hallows Part 2 stands at $882 million, moving ahead of Chamber of Secrets to 22nd on the all-time chart. On Wednesday, its 15th day, it will cross the $900 million worldwide mark, topping Avatar's 18-day run as the fastest movie to that milestone.
