Re: MCU Phase 2 Box Office/Budget Prediction Thread
IMO, GOTG has a very real potential to absolutely flop, perhaps more than any MCU movie that will have come before it. But that's a good thing--it proves that Marvel is continuing their mantra of taking risks. Iron Man was a risk. Rebooting Hulk was a risk (though the Tony Stark cameo in the commercials probably ensured a good amount of butts in seats that year). Thor was a risk. GOTG is a huge risk, especially if it gets the budget it deserves. For the record, I think GOTG will make at least 150M domestic and eventually turn a profit thanks to the overseas market. Gotta love predictions before seeing one casting announcement.
