The LA Times reports that Captain America: First Avenger did not beat Thor for its opening weekend debut.

Turns out Cap was just shy of Thor, grossing $65.1 million compared to Thor's $65.7 million.

It was previously estimated that Cap was the victor, but final ticket numbers came in today from Paramount revealing the news.

Not at all bad news as both films were great, and Cap still globbered Warner Bros.' Green Lantern, in addition to taking down Harry Potter.

Captain America: First Avenger hits theaters July 22nd, 2011 starring Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America and Hugo Weaving as his arch-enemy, Johann Schmidt, the Red Skull.
