Re: Man of Steel Box Office Prediction Thread
Let's be honest here-- If Returns never happened, then Man of Steel would be guaranteed some big bucks however, this is a reboot and the GA isn't far removed from the failure of SR. If MoS puts up ASM like numbers, I'd call that a huge success but since this is SUPERMAN, the first Iron Man would be a better comparison IMO. I'd expect an OW of $85-$120 Mil and a final talley on or around $300 mil domestic and $450-$500 mil overseas.
I have a hard time seeing MoS putting up numbers equivalent to The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises-- The hype/popularity is nowhere near those levels and that's no disrespect to MoS (although Christopher Nolans' name is stamped all over this project so anything is possible.) I sure hope MoS exceeds expectations and hauls in some serious cash so WB/DC can get the ball rolling with Justice League ala Marvel/Iron Man!
