Also, Thor and Cap were both those character's first films, so $170-180 million was a good (most would say great) haul domestically

$179 for Wolverine, with all those movies under his belt and a better domestic total for X2 and X3, had to be more disappointing to the studio

that said, if this one make $150 domestic and $350 or so million international, with this movie's slightly lower budget, it'd would be a decent chunck of change
The Dark Knight rises did less than the dark knight as is said domesticly.

Many sequels to big hits actully do less domesticly than predaser.

After reading the plot summary for Iron Man 3 on Wiki my Meh attitude was
very justified and I have absolutly no desire to see that.

Sequels like empire strikes back,Batman Returns,and Spider-man 2 did less than
their event film predassers.

AFter seeing the plot summary for Iron Man 3 I don't care what critics say
about the wolverine If they love that.

Many sequels improved over their first installments. POTC and Transformers are just some recent well known examples. X-Men and the Bourne franchise steadily increased with each installment.

Its Rotten Tomatoes rating is actually very high. And with more than 30 reviews already, I think its to safe say that its not a bad movie.

Well I have no desire to see It ever after seeing the plot summary.I already had a meh attitude after trailers.Plus the ongoing Fox-Disney war pn this board Is causing me to
be more critical on MS films.

The spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness even though they confirm speculation makes me
want to see film unlike Iron Man 3.

Iron Man 3 will be prime counterpoint when people bash Fox for changes to X-Men films but don't mention the changes Disney does.

LOL! Yeah that also made me to be more critical towards Marvel Studios because fanboys won't shut up criticizing the X-Men movies like as if every X-Men movie that FOX released was bad.

Well, you said "Dark Knight" did less than "Batman Begins", nothing about TDKR

and that's the better example to go off of
BB does well, then TDK does gangbusters
ergo
Thor did well, so Thor 2 will kick all sorts of ass

third movies? whole other ball game
but for IM3, looks like Avengers is pushing that one up considerably

so why wouldn't it do that for Thor and Cap as well?

In terms of Quality, Man of Steel and the Wolverine are looking better then the other.

Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 will be good I'm sure, but both of there previous movies (not including avengers) were sub par, Iron Man 2 was bad and Thor was average. (though Thor 2 looks to be much improved)

After seeing the Thor trailer im actually looking forward to the wolverine the least. Im still interested of course, but iron man 3 & man of steel look awesome and thor looks very interesting. I just hope they are all good.

Iron Man 3 was actually really good. Right now, its in my top 5 when it comes to all Marvel films. The Wolverine has to be really good to top it off.

I thought Iron Man 3 was okay, but nothing more. And that had nothing to do with what happened with Mandarin because I was fine with that. (But can you imagine how the fanboys would rage against Fox if they did that with a major villain!!!??).

A lot of the humour in IM3 fell flat (no one really laughed, and the quips were nowhere near as good as in the Avengers) and there were too many explosions (and too many suits of armour that could fly about on their own!).

It made me have more hope and faith in The Wolverine. But I think IM3 will do very well - judging from critics' reactions so far - and I have doubts that The Wolverine will reach those heights critically and financially.

Wolverine is the least talked about movie thus far. I am guessing it could be due to this movie not being released till July or due to pessimism due to Orgins: Wolverine and X-Men the last stand. This is Fox chance to really step it up. You got two movies both in 3d coming out and they need to create buzz for these films. They need to be the best X-Men films to date.

I think this just proves that the general audience are less interested with spin-offs and prequels. I think people are more interested in Days of Future Past.

As much as I love X-Men...I see it as Man of Steel or Iron Man 3 > Thor: Dark World > The Wolverine

The minute I heard they were basing on part the extremetes storyline my Intrest dropped.The trailers left me with a very meh attitude.Nothing the actors have
said have excited me.But seeing the plot summary just put me over the top
to not see It.

I used to see most marvel films but all their online wars have left me with
a case by case attitude towards Disney/MS films.My main excitement Is for X-Men and SPider-man films.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Iron Man 3 makes a mockery out of the mandarian.Imagine Fox doing something like this.Yes Chris Nolan did something similar In batman begins but at least he had a Ra's al ghul like In comics as stand in for ducard.Treating pepper pots as love of Tony Stark's life when she actully married happy In comics would be like Peter parker never getting Involved with Mary Jane and marrying gwen stacy.Could you Imagine the backlash If SOny did that.James Rhodes was not Iron Patroit In comcis eather


The Amnesa some have to MS and Chris Nolan when changing things but
crictzing everything Fox does Is getting trying.

Consideirng my my signature you can tell how much I regard the original Superman film My final decsion to see man of steel will depend on plot sumary being released.I know full well once man of steel opens some will be bashing
Richard Donnor's take on Superman and Christopher reeve as Superman.I have seen same thing with james bond and after danial craig other bonds except for timothy dalton be bashed.

I don't have much Intrest In Thor:The dark world.Thor was weakest of MS films.I always swore if they brought back the stupid comic relief character of marcy I would not see It.well not only they bring her back but reportly she has larger role.Plus I am worried about a redemption arc for Loki as well as spending too much time on jane's reaction to Asgard.

The Wolverine Is one comic book film I am looking forward to of this year.

I think you just have to watch the movie. Thats the best way to judge a movie.

Yeah, watching the movie is the true way to judge it IMO. Also I know most fanboys in many movie websites hate Fox and come out in droves to bash whenever something X-Men is shown or announced. These fanboys opinions won't change even if the up-coming X-Men movies are good (well maybe some of them will change their opinion), and this is because they want The X-Men to go back to Marvel Studies/Disney and they won't be satisfied till it happens. Don't let their opinion make you not enjoy these comicbook movies or prevent you from watching. This year should be a good year for comic book movie fans and it should be fun watching and comparing them all.

Fox has made more good X-Men movies than bad, X1, X2, and XM:FC were all good films. The only bad films were X-Men: Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, so I'd say they have a pretty good track record. So with that being said I think The Wolverine is going to be another addition to the good films list.
