And both Iron Man 3 and Fast and the Furious 6 followed what? The Avengers, the third highest grossing movie in cinema history, and Fast Five, the then highest grossing movie of The Fast and the Furious franchise--both incredibly well received movies. What was The Wolverine seen as a sequel to? X-Men Origins--the worst X-Men movie to date.

Just because it's expensive, doesn't mean it's worth the cost.

Because in the case of The Wolverine, it probably wouldn't have been worth it.

No, I know there was a lack of early awareness with The Wolverine, but I also know that seeing a trailer in March instead of January isn't what is keeping people out of theaters now.
