By the way, Avengers official budget is 220 million. Where are you getting 300 million from?
The official trading card series + Variety listed $300 M. It was leaked mid shoot that the film cost "At least $260 M."
A lot of budgets are fudged to placate shareholders. Watch Iron Man 2 and then watch Avengers, and tell me that Avengers only has a $20 M budget increase. The presence of The Hulk alone would add another $20 M.
MCU Rest of Decade prediction:
2015: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man
2016: Captain America 3, Doctor Strange
2017: Thor 3, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Inhumans
2018: Avengers 3, Black Panther, Incredible Hulk 2
2019: Iron Man 4, Doctor Strange 2, Ms. Marvel
