could that change? possibly! although i still think its best not to release the films to close together
Yeah, I'll be surprised if DoFP beats Spidey, although I expect solid numbers from both. But it's possible. I know one thing, both have to be really good to get back on the path of achieving their real potential
. A Spider-Man film in today's marketplace should not sweat to get to a billion worldwide if you look at the comparisons, but it will most likely fall short. And the X-Men have never reached the B.O. levels they ought to imo. This should be the film that starts it at least.
TASM2 and DoFP are being released 7 weeks apart. Plenty of space I think.
