They'll both probably do very well commercially. The SW prequels, as s#!tty as they are, were successful in pure calculation of cost vs profit. If JJ Abrams can make SW 7 as good as the OT, then over the course of the summer I think SW might make more.

But thanks to the utter crapfest that was the SW prequels, I think Avengers 2 will have the stronger opening weekend.
