Um yes it would.

If Thor TDW opened the summer 2012, It would have earned more money in 2 weeks.

The release date claim is pure b.s. The release date was fine as the fact that the movie is going to make 650-700mil worldwide shows us.

Older black women went to see The Best Man, it did not hurt Thor at the box office. Ender's game had a crappy opening and did not hurt Thor's opening weekend. I think that Thor was always and 80-90mil opener unless it had stellar trailers and reviews and it had neither of those things.

This! I can't believe some of you. Your acting like Thor bombed at the
Box office and marvel is taking a loss. Some of you need to relax and enjoy that thor has done over 500 million worldwide and was a great success again for marvel! Not every movie has to do a billion dollars to be successful.

Thor is the only comic book character who was featured in three successive movies each year - Thor (2011), Avengers (2012), Thor: The Dark World (2013). The constant spot-light on him helped.

Also he got boost from Avengers movie and Thor movies have added advantage of having Hiddleston as Loki (arguably most well known villain of Marvel Studios.)

So, it not a surprise that people expected Thor: TDW to do well at Box Office, even if he was a C-list hero as compared to (say) A-lister like Hulk.

Thor character has very interesting mythology and support characters.

Situation with Superman is different, many different expectations from many different people.

Competition makes a difference.

I agree.
Thor was never going to be a 100 million dollar opener.
Not even Box Office Com went that far in their predictions
Although I am miffed at them, their 97 million dollar prediction raised expectations for some fans .

The thing is this movie budget is 170 so only 20 mil bigger than the first one- 600+ ww is a huge success for this movie. As 450-500 would be for Cap I already see some huge predictions like 100 mil OW for Cap and going in full face-palm mode-all thous "disappointment" talk will repeat itself coming spring just wait.

I really think some of you guys are misrepresenting what we are saying in regards to box office. We arent saying oh the movie bombed. But some of us are surprised at the lower box office numbers this is getting in the states. With all the varibles that it had regarding a 181 million box office two years then following a 600 million domestic of avengers last year and two weeks of basically no competition. Worldwide is great I do think there is a little drop off in interest of superhero movies in this country with regards to how this sequel is doing and wolverine. I think personally that the people who making these movies are looking at these numbers and can see a small problem here.

Look we are not just picking on Thor. If hunger games has a similar box office we would be talking about that as well. Granted its ceiling is much higher but with a few exceptions I have been reading through these posts and very few predicted these domestic numbers. Compliments to those who did because I would have never guessed that a Thor sequel after the avengers would only make a little bit more than the original domestic wise.

If the movie was good, like really really good, we than would have shot at 700-750 mil. I hope the results will make MS reconsider some of their actions in regard of this movie and will grant next director more freedom.

I mean I'm crappy at reading international box office numbers but I was under the impression that The Dark World had a shot at 700mil.

Means nothing in the end, TDW will surpass the 185 Million that the original made by next week and will continue making millions more, and it has already blown by the Worldwide numbers..
Thor 1 is no longer relevant to TDW..

700M ain't happening. But I think it finishes somewhere close to MOS WW. Or maybe a bit below it.

Oh alright. I know my domestic numbers but I always have to read articles about the international numbers to get a handle on it.

So I know this isn't the correct thread but people are in here so what the hell. Did you guys expect the movie to get better reviews? I mean the reviews are decent (if you don't count the top critics on RT) of course but they are below the first film's?

I think it means something. It means that it isnt bringing in more people at the same point in time as the first movie. So I think its kinda relevant.
