I have high hopes for Thor, too, but I really don't see it getting as big a post-Avenger boost as IM3. Hemsworth's name still hasn't translated to box office gold for either Cabin in the Woods or Red Dawn, and the boffo box office for TA1 and SWATH are far more likely to be attributable to his co-stars.
I still see 3 movies fighting for the billion-dollar club this year. Supes, Shellhead, and Preciousssssss.
Meh I just don't see MOS doing anywhere near a billion, I'd say around 700 million at the most but hey I could be wrong.
Of course Thor isn't going to get as big of a boost as IM, but Thor was the 3rd most popular character with audiences in TA. With that being said I see Thor:TDW doing somewhere around 700-750 million.
CAPTAIN AMERICA, THOR, IRON MAN, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, BLACK WIDOW, AND HAWKEYE
Spider-Man - It's the end of the world, I'M FREAKING OUT...why aren't you freaking out?
Captain America - Because I can hear it.
Spider-Man - Hear what?
Captain America - ....thunder *cue Thor's grand entrance*
