MOS is trying to start off a new franchise while Iron Man is coming off of successful movies including Avengers. I think most people should see that it is an origin with the Jor-el moments being tied into all the trailers.
You have to be joking. I bet MoS has a decent chance at eclipsing IM3.

I have a feeling MOS will be better as a film, but Iron Man 3 will end up making more in terms of box office numbers. You guys don't think having the other IM and Avengers movie will give it more casual fans? Come on.

my worst fear is that Faora will turn on Zod and kill him and then declare that he was simply a decoy and the SHE is the REAL General......but thankfully no company would ever do something so asinine as that......surely.............

worst fears: too much gray/bluish environment like a bourne movie or ironman/avengers look. i want superman movies to be a little warmer in tone.

also the superman returns looking cinematography in some shots is a waste. i hope they don't do a lot of similar scenes. change it up!

Krypton not being destroyed. Though I think io9 is completely off base with that rumor

Despite how awesome the trailers are, I wouldn't be surprised at all if it's not a good movie.
Hmmm... suspiciously decided to leave out his best RT rated film Dawn of the Dead ------------ RT 75%, average rating 6.7.

Not that I think any of that has much to do with this movie (or any movie in general, since I LOVE a lot of movies with bad RT ratings)... but if your going to do it, do it properly.

Trailer #3 eased my fear that Shannon wouldn't be displayed as a pyscho general.

The only thing that worries me now is that I'll die before MOS comes out. Or that the awesomeness of MOS will make me die. Or something else along those lines.

I personally think, because they are ramping up marketing on this film now...that we will see a weekend box office record.

By opening weekend gross or just WW total? Because if it's the former or the latter, I still don't think MOS will topple IM3. IM3 should make $600 million by this Sunday. It's guaranteed to make $1 billion. But I do think MOS will still be a very big hit.

Iron Man 3 is probably going to be the biggest film in 2013.

If the Dark Knight Rises (a film from an outgoing and highly critical-acclaimed series) didn't beat the box-office numbers of the Avengers, of course Man of Steel (the first film in the reboot) wouldn't beat Iron Man 3's box-office numbers.

Fear not, tis not true. Shannon has mentioned Krypton's destruction in interviews talking about his character's motivation and Crowe just did a tweet in character as Jor-El talking about him sending us Kal as Krypton dies around him.

I don't think many if ANY film will beat IM3 at the box office.
However, IM3 is riding on the success of both IM1 and IM2.. Not forgetting the box office monster that was Avengers.

Like it or not MOS could still suffer some Superman Returns backlash, don't get me wrong I honestly believe MOS will be a much better movie than IM3.. But I just don't think it will make the same kind of money.. The real money will come with the sequels.
