How big is Captain America: The Winter Soldier going to get? Well, if Chris Evans' muscles are anything to go by, much bigger than the last one!

Box office experts are tracking it to surpass $80 million in its opening weekend alone!

The sequel is expected to benefit from what's called the "halo effect" of mega-hit The Avengers. Cap's teammates already saw big jumps in their opening weekend takes.

The first Thor took in $65.7 mil, but after The Avengers, the thunder god made it rain with $85.7 million! Likewise, Tony Stark got even richer, going from $128.1 million for Iron Man 2 to $174.1 million in Iron Man 3.

That's over a 30% increase in both franchises! Captain America: The First Avenger also opened to about $65 mil, so $80 mil is looking like an easy hurdle!

And repeat business might be good too! Word is that both Disney and Marvel are so happy with the film's quality, they've already greenlit number three!

We guess green is the operative word!
