Re: Which Comic Book Hero will rain Supreme next year?
I think Man of Steel will come out on top by a large margin, but I hope to god the Nolanites don't try to champion this as his doing. If MOS goes platinum, it will be due to Snyder's influence far more than Nolan's.
Then, it's a toss-up between IM and Thor. I don't think either can expect a feel-good boost from Avenger coattails; instead, people will be judging those movies against IM2 and the first Thor. In which case it comes down to whichever one is perceived as far more of an improvement over their predecessors.
Wolverine has a hard row to hoe. X-Fans have already left the Singer (and, ugh, Ratner) era behind and are more interested in the sequel to XMFC. But The Wolverine definitely looks like the solo movie Logan *should* have had instead of that XMO bull****.
