Moviegoers salutes a patriotic super-soldier at the box office this weekend, as Captain America: The Winter Soldier broke a April record with $96.2 million.

Chris Evans suits back up as Steve Rogers, who wakes up after being a "Cap-sicle" for over 70 years following his battle with the Red Skull.

Like fellow Avenger Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Cap is now an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., the covert spy organization directed by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), the creator of the Avengers Initiative: assembling Cap, Natasha, Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Tony Stark/Iron Man, Thor, and Bruce Banner/the Hulk to become "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" against Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in New York City two years ago.

The Winter Soldier finds Cap and Natasha teaming up with Sam Wilson/the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) to take on a Russian assassin with ties to Cap's past.

And more good news: Deadline confirms that Marvel's First Avenger will take on DC Comics' Man of Steel and the Dark Knight, as Captain America 3 will go up against Batman vs. Superman with Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck; this superhero box office battle begins on May 6, 2016.
