I think Disney is going to push this movie as "Avengers 1.5", which will be easier since more Avengers stars are in this than in IM3. (As well as tie in Steve's connection to the Winter Soldier.) If TWS can deliver the goods like IM3 did, I think a $120M opening is the ceiling for this pic.
I wouldn't hold my breath for a $150 to $170 million.

Even if Nick Fury, Black Widow and Maria Hill appears in this movie, the film still doesn't have Hulk, Thor and Iron Man. In terms of characters that appearing in TWS, Captain America is the only major draw of the film.
