It will be double dipping in 2013 with Iron Man 3 (deadline.com)

I'm a little surprised they're going forward with a sequel to this. It certainly was good, but has barely made more than Incredible Hulk. Also, without Branagh, I fear the quality will drop drastically.


EDIT: wtf?

I think they're banking (probably rightfully so) that interest around the character will pick up after The Avengers. Anybody who was leery of the character going into the first one (it's not Marvel's most popular book and Norse mythology has never really stuck in Western culture) will see him rubbing elbows with Iron Man and be more willing to give him a chance the second time around.

Trotting out Thor without Branagh and bringing out Iron Man without Favreau makes a cynic like me think that they're going with the cavalier "Well, we can cut costs and people will pay for it because they're SUPERHEROES! Who cares if it sucks?" attitude that sunk the Batman films in the late 90's.

Interest in Thor is already high. Thor was very well-received by general audiences. Especially women. The response to Chris Hemsworth as Thor was very positive with women. Green Lantern trotted out Well-Known Heartthrob Ryan Reynolds and he didn't match the buzz Hemsworth got as Thor.

From a business standpoint, Thor is so far the first and only movie in summer 2011 to be number one two weekends in a row. It's smart to announce Thor 2 now, and to announce it for July 28, 2013. It moves them away from Fast and the Furious 6, which was announced for Memorial Day 2013 and was Thor's head to head competition this summer. Usually summer event movies thin out in August, potentially giving Thor the chance to dominate that entire month as a late summer event blockbuster.

As for Branagh, he did a good job with Thor, but let's wait and see who Marvel hires to direct the sequel before The Sky is Falling declarations are made for Thor 2.

Yeah, considering they've hired Shane F'n Black to direct IRON MAN 3 I think we can give them the benefit of the doubt until his replacement is announced.

It was beginning of May, barely summer in movie season terms and there wasn't much competition.

I think the bigger problem is that Marvel seems to be putting all of its eggs in The Avengers as the key to creating a new franchise, as well as boosting the Captain America/Hulk/Thor/Favreau-less Iron Man franchises (not to mention possibly getting solo films for Hawkeye, Black Widow, maybe even Maria Hill). If Avengers isn't received well, it could damage basically the entire Marvel brand outside of the X-Men and Spidey films.

Avengers is going to make money. Thor was the one that could easily set it off the rails instead it increased the interest. Cap looks to be one of the best films of year. So, the interest is still going to be high for it. If Avenger doesn't do over $200 million, I will be shocked. I do think if does below it they will consider reeling in the solo films of the lower cast members.


I think Marvel is sabotaging X-Men and Spiderman to get them back. There was little advertising for X-Men: First Class expect for the two weeks before it premiered. Everything coming out of Spiderman looks terrible even with the decent casting. The game plan is for Disney to swoop in and get them, so they can have it all under one roof.

Marvel have literally no control over the X-MEN and SPIDERMAN franchises. They're producer sonly in the loosest sense of the word. There's no sabotaging going on there.

I think $200 million is the floor. It will HAVE to do more than that to consider it a success. And yes that looks absurd to type, but the hype building for this is gaining more and more steam each day. Thor's success sent it into overdrive. Captain America will but it into hyper drive. If the story line is a good as Iron Man 1, this could hit $300-$350 million - especially with repeat viewing.

The Avengers movie could make 200+ million and still be considered a failure for the series if it turns enough people away from spending money on anymore movies like it.

Actually, That's the average thinking on all Hollywood, big budget, tent pole films. $200 million isn't enough anymore when films are costing more than that to produce. (Hey! I used the correct 'than') Green Lantern is considered a bomb because it's only made $100 million in 2 weeks. ...only $100 million. Remember when making that was a big deal back when Goldeneye and Se7en came out in 1995?

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is considered as 'under performing' domestically even though it's now moved up to the #7 highest grossing film in the world, just over The Dark Knight. It's world wide total is over a billion dollars now, but since it's only made $235 million here in the states, it's seen as 'under performing'? It's ridiculous.

Very good Boston crime movie by Ben Affleck, very entertaining, and a real crowd pleaser.
