Disney-Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” is already breaking records a week ahead of its U.S. debut, bringing in $200.2 million as it opened internationally this weekend.

Playing in 14 markets abroad, the superhero sequel opened at No. 1 in all of them and set first-weekend records in Brazil, Mexico and the Philippines.

“Civil War” is by far the best-reviewed film of the “Captain America” franchise, earning a 94 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Already on its way to becoming a blockbuster, the comic book sequel features an epic knock-down, drag-‘em-out fight between Cap (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), as a slew of fellow Avengers — and other superheroes — are forced to pick sides.

Making their debut are Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).
