No doubt. Well, Thor 2 should be a good test. Hemsworth and Hiddleston are stars now, making the cast pretty stellar. Should be a spectacular film. Will be interesting to see how that goes.
Although a figure like $600 million worldwide seems like a lowball estimate at this point, which would probably have made people LoL when speaking of a Thor movie a couple of years ago. So, whatever.
