I think Avengers helped MoS do as well as it did actually. People started seeing MoS as DC's response to Marvel's MCU and everyone was high on CBM's after Avengers. I think if Avengers had failed MoS would have done much less. Like Feige says, they only help each other when one of them makes a good movie.
