Marvel's master plan to release a bunch of films every year, with all the characters coming together in the occasional Avengers movie, is succeeding beyond anyone's wildest expectations. The initial Avengers movie was such a crazy success, that all the subsequent Marvel films have been seen as quasi-sequels. It's brought a whole new audience to the movies. That certainly explains the incredible success of the new Captain America movie, but it was also helped along by glowingly reviews. The plot might confuse people new to the world of Marvel, but it's all building towards a second Avengers movie that'll certainly shatter all box-office records.
