Default Re: Which Comic Book Hero will rain Supreme next year?

That poll is all kinds of wrong so I can't vote in it. But --

Iron Man 3 will easily win the box office race among superhero films next year, IMO, followed hotly by Thor: TDW. Hardcore fans go on about the supposed shortcomings of IM2, but the plain fact is that the general audience liked the film, and they love Tony Stark. Robert Downey Jr. headlines two massively successful franchises and costars in a third. He's the biggest star on the planet right now and IM3's earnings should reflect that.

MOS will come in behind Thor, hobbled by the memory of the inferior Superman Returns and the dark tone the trailer revealed. The Wolverine would have to be the best superhero film in the history of forever to get viewers to embrace it, so I expect that will limp into fourth place.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
