"Captain America: Civil War" expects to have a massive debut.

The new "Captain America" movie is en route to one of the best openings in the history of Marvel Comics films, according to pre-release tracking obtained by Variety.

"Captain America: Civil War" could be the fourth film in history to reach a $200 million debut, analysts told Hollywood trade magazine Variety. Right now, it is tracking to open between $175 million and $180 million, according to Variety.

The other three $200 million films are formidable competitors — "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," "Jurassic World" and the first "Avengers" movie, according to the report. But with Avengers characters like Iron Man and Black Widow, analysts told Variety that Captain America's latest flick "has a shot."

"Captain America: Civil War" opens on May 6th in the U.S. and will roll out worldwide by the first week of May, Variety said, with no other competing releases planned for the two weeks afterward.
