Early Thor Darkworld box-office predictions
I know it's little under a year until Thor: The Dark World hits theaters, but might as well begin early predictions/speculation about how it'll perform come November 8, 2013.
I think Disney and Marvel were smart to pick that date. The goodwill carried over from The Avengers (and presumably IM3), should give Thor 2 a boost. If the marketing and word-of-mouth is good too, I expect numbers like these:
Opening weekend: $75M-80M
Domestic gross: $230M-$250M
Worldwide gross: $600M-$700M
I don't expect those numbers to be higher, unless Thor 2 really blows people away.
