The Weekend Warrior's 2013 Summer Box Office

With so many big movies in May you'd think there isn't much left for the rest of summer, but there are two more comic book superhero movies picking up where Iron Man 3 leaves off with the Zack Snyder Superman movie Man of Steel (Warner Bros. – June 14) expected to be an enormous blockbuster as it introduces British actor Henry Cavill as Clark Kent aka Superman.

Warner Bros. really needs to get this franchise right this time after Bryan Singer's less-than-well-received Superman Returns, which still cracked $200 million but even moreso after the dud Green Lantern. Snyder may have one of the most Oscar-nominated casts in the history of superhero movies starting with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent and Russell Crowe as Superman's birth father Jor-El. That's a lot of quality actors, a much higher caliber than any movies outside of Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight” series, and there's going to be a lot of excitement from Superman fans from young to old. We would be shocked if this one doesn't open in the $90 million range and if it doesn't keep bringing in business over the rest of the month of June and July on its way to $300 million or even more, although it has quite a bit of competition in the weeks that follow.
