Default Re: The Iron Man 3 Box Office Prediction Thread

I'm sure it's been said but this film faces the cbm second sequel curse. I doubt it will overcome it, however we may have an inversion here due the first sequel sucking.

Also Shane Black? I know he's got this bad ass reputation amongst people that loved 90's buddy action films and he himself talks a big game...somehow between that and avengers people aren't really taking to the idea that marvel just went and give their a list franchise to some cheap replacement.

Is Ironman really that big a draw without Avengers? Coming off of IM2 that is.

IM3 faces a seasoned star trek and Fast 6 as it's comp going into the later weeks.

Just some stuff to think about.

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
