For the record no Spider-man sequel has ever done less than $300M domestically. So settling for a $200M box office with a previous $230M production budget "would" be a flop in Hollywood's eyes. The first Spider-man film made over $800m Worldwide and has been on the decline ever since.
False. Spider-man 3 made almost 900 million world wide.
And prepare to eat crow when ASM 2 comes out. The first one did much better than most people were expecting, with the final gross being just under what the second movie in the last trilogy made. I'm betting that with a big marketing push and more wriggle room to tell a full story now that the origin is out of the way, it will end up making around 800 million world wide again.
It's not going to "suck"; we have seen nothing to make us think that. The first one was pretty solid, so I don't know what you're basing that off of. And it DEFINITELY won't be a flop.
So as I said, just be prepared to eat crow come 2014.
