Marc Webb resumes his directorial helming. Within an interview with the Huffington Post Webb informs how this sophomore sequel was a brighter direction from "Amazing Spider-Man".

Yeah, because I was more aware of the impact and the eventualities of certain decisions. It was like, "Oh, this will look cool at night." But the comic books very rarely take place at night. That vibrant daytime visual component of the film, I didn't realize how important that was. Especially to kids. It makes the 3D look a lot better too.

There are more bright spots.

The list is a many faceted assortment of franchise either live action or animated (two of the top ten spots are the ogrish claims from "Shrek 2" and "Shrek 3"). The brand naming the Marvel sort colludes the May ranking as much as its movies speckle what a New York rife of costumed heroes presents.

And for Marvel repletes, its latest superhero adaptations from seperate propriety studios were released within a month's time of the other. Both hold top spots in Marvel licensed filmmaking. Out of Marvel Comics based superhero genre films, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" holds 8th while "Amazing Spider-Man 2" has the 9th within the overall openings.

Speaking of one of the Millenium's premiere action stars, Chris Evans reprisal in red-white-blue costuming is at its fifth-week's showing. Over May 2 to May 4, it has the number 4 ranking while the wall-crawler took Cap's former lead seat across three weekends. The Steve Rogers' follow-up took in $7.7 mil, its lowest since hitting theater's nationwide.

Over a box office-borne star-spangled shield staunches "The Other Woman". With Cameron Diaz a lead amongst an celeb star ensemble Twentieth Century Fox's romedy twist was replaced from last three-day's first ranking but recedes no further than a $14.2 million second-placing. At third sits TriStar's "Heaven is for Real" with $8.7 million.

All in all, "Amazing Spider-Man 2" has to swing its winning debut towards a next three-day's face-off against May 16 to May 18 openings from Warner Bros. and Legendary's sci-fi reboot "Godzilla". The upcoming comics flick contender arrives May 23 to May 25 with latest mutant hero installment "X-Men: Days of Future Past". The monster fare and X-Men anticipation will have to fare versus a current fan-favorite that at its worldwide first week perches at a 4th placement on the international match-ups. Above Sony's swall-crawling $369. million is $393.3 mil that "Rio 2" trenches worldwide. "The LEGO Movie" by Warner Bros. is 2nd at $452.9 million.
