Really ?

Superman Returns made almost 400 mil in 2006, Thor made about 450 mil worldwide in 2011.

This movie already has more action than SR had, and the fact that SR was not converted into 3D for regular theaters. Also, SR faced stiff competition from POTC 2 franchise.

If this movie manages to draw-in same number of people to watch the movie as SR did, then -

Accounting for inflation since 2006, and added 3D boost of 15 % to regular ticket prices, it should easily make upto 500 mil.

Now, take into account the fact that overseas market has expanded since 2006, the popularity of Nolan brand, better action scenes, MOS can make more then 500 mil worldwide.

If Thor can make 450 mil, then MOS surly can make at least 500 mil.
