Re: Captain America 2: News and Speculation - Part 6
Thor and Cap both had solid first outings, that made more cash than Batman Begins or the first X-Men. And that will only improve post-Avengers. So the people who go on about Marvel having to prove they can do it without RDJ, i think that's a silly argument. Yes, RDJ knocked it out of the park and drew a lotta butts into theaters for Avengers and IM2 & 3. But after good first movies with solid box office and appearances in one of the highest grossing films of all time, I think Cap and Thor 2 will both do at least IM2 numbers. At least, as long as Marvel and Disney keep up the great promotional work.
