And possibly not?

But you do happen to have a point, based on xeno's percentages, the number of women at Avengers isn't *that* much less than the number of women at Twilight. That said... are they the same women, or does it matter? Women are women, so there?

THG is one film that went after that crowd, and certainly did better than the first Twilight film, so we'll see how it does over four films. If it doubles like Twilight's series did, then THG on its own will be in the 1.5 billion range, and likely with that same 60/40 ratio, and then perhaps we'll have this discussion again about how Avengers' 40% female audience does not capture the female audience like films aimed at that audience do.
