Re: The Avengers 2! The Official News and Speculation Thread
Avengers 2 can totally beat Star Wars. Think about the audience segments:
Grown up nerds 30+: Will see both movies regardless. EDGE: TIE
Kids 6-12: Grown up on Avengers 1 and rest of the MCU movies, plus EMH. Don't know Star Wars except from DVDs and the Clone Wars cartoon. EDGE: AVENGERS
Non-nerd parents of young kids: See above. EDGE: AVENGERS
Millenials 18-30: Have seen pretty good MCU movies and weak SW Prequels. EDGE: AVENGERS
Normal women without children: ScarJo, RDJ, the Sexy Chrises in a contemporary setting vs. the geriatric shapeless original Star Wars cast and some young actors in bathrobes spouting some mystical mumbo jumbo in an unrelatable alien environment. EDGE: AVENGERS
"Dude" action movie guys: New York City getting blown up vs. some strange CGI alien planet getting blown up. EDGE: AVENGERS
Notice to all Hype members: Put down your phone and/or game controller right now and pick up a copy of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon. A must-read for anybody who visits this website.
