Anyone else care to weigh in?
I agree about the move. This film has been trying to get off the ground for what, over a decade now? Two of the biggest icons going at it. Just a bit of advertising is necessary. Most, I think, will just want to see this interaction similar to how we all wanted to see how the Avengers would interact for the first time.

Not sure if families are going to get burned out. Certainly, it could be argued the market is over-saturated. As long as the movies have something new that hasn't really been seen or put a spin on things, I think people will go. I overheard employees discussing how awesome Man of Steel's action was. Hancock, Matrix Revolutions, etc. had similar action, but Man of Steel took it to a different level. However, with the economy in the state it's in, people will continue to be choosey. I know I am
