That being said, I redact my previous statement of 750 mil after seeing that trailer. I think a billion is, at this point, definitely attainable.
It's not like IM2 was on the level of Superman Returns, a film which was actually rather poorly received when it came out. Turning Superman into a deadbeat dad who stalked his ex and her family was a bad idea from the start. As was that weird half-alien kid played by the sorriest moppet in Hollywood. That was just...wrong in so many ways. Like SR, there are plenty of other superhero films that were truly bad and disliked by the public, but IM2 isn't one of them.
