People expecting a billion dollar box office based on this should prepare to be disappointed. Similarly arguments like "Iron Man 3 made a billion so Thor should too" are highly unconvincing. I don't expect Thor to make more than even Man of Steel, particularly with all the behind the scenes production problems and re-shoots.
During the shooting of Jaws ,Stephen Spielberg coudnt get the shark to work.
It was thought to be a GUARANTEED failure at the box office.
Look what happened .
