Iron Man is still a guaranteed proven franchise, but I still don't see any guarantees with Thor or Cap. Again, high hopes, but I'm trying to be realistic about any MS movie that doesn't feature Iron Man in it.
I see all 3 solo franchises having huge foreign growth after the characters were featured in a film that did nearly $900 M internationally. Domestic growth will probably be minimal (less than 15%), but a foreign boost of up to 50% for each solo sequel wouldn't shock me.
