Even with the studio only getting half the box office gross of a film, I don't think a $350 M or even $400 M budget for Avengers 2 is suicide range, but I think they'll try to keep it down around $300 M and report $250 M.
I think there's an easier explanation: the 300M number includes their marketing budget, which is otherwise always separate from the production budget anyway.
