When the totals are counted for this weekend TDW will have officially surpassed its original predecessor's entire run in a mere 23 days. Its not hard to see this film doing 15-20 million better- and anyway u slice it, that spells success!
TDW will end its run somewhere north of $600 million WW. It won't be too far shy of MOS, even though that film features the best known superhero in the world. People who poor-mouth the box office totals because the billion-dollar mark feels like an easy goal for a movie to reach are very shortsighted.

As for whether Thor is difficult to do well, I would say that Marvel has proven in three outings with the character that the answer is no. Thor and his world have achieved acceptance with the audience and he has been established as a popular superhero. It's a subjective matter, of course, so each person will have a different opinion.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
