Civil War was one of the most anticipated comic book movies of the year and the film really has not disappointed - winning over the critics as well as audiences around the world.

So far, the movie has grossed $705.2 million and is currently the fifth highest-grossing film of 2016 so far.

However, Civil War has its sights set on Deadpool and The Jungle Book, which have grossed $761 million and $780 million respectfully.

While Zootropolis is currently the movie successful film of 2016 with $958 million, it is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice that is currently the highest-grossing comic book film on $867 million.

Civil War is also well on course to surpass the box office success of its predecessor, The Winter Solider, which grossed $714.4 million two years ago. The film will be the most successful Captain America film and could be one of the most successful Marvel films to date.

Captain America: Civil War is the third standalone film for this character and sees Chris Evans reunite with filmmakers Anthony and Joe Russo. This is the second Marvel film of their careers - following on from the success of The Winter Solider - and they are set to take over the Avengers franchise from Joss Whedon.

Civil War kicks off Phase 3 of Marvel films and is the first of two Marvel movies that we are going to be treated to this year; the second coming in the form of Doctor Strange in the autumn.

Marvel will be releasing three films in 2016 as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok are all on the horizon.
