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.
^ Agree. I'd almost go so far to say that I'd be shocked if Thor outgrossed MoS, since I have it pegged for at least $800m and Thor for at most $700m. Even with the dud that was Superman Returns, the movie grossed $200m domestically without 3D, IMAX, and increased ticket prices we have today. With a better reception and Nolan's name attached, it should do even better here and overseas, especially with how developed overseas has become.
