That's a weak way of putting it. Besides Marvel has NOT release a studio film yet so we haven't seen a film with Marvel's personal big push behind it. It's always been other studios with Avi commenting on the sidelines. We also have a very talented director attached who has lots of pull as far as getting top talent to join in if needed. Also no other Bond film has made as much as Die Another Day either. So comparing Bond's #1 film to Marvel films yet dismissing Marvel's top 5 films is hilarious. Iron Man has potential to hit 200 million with the talent, the character, and the May release date. Casino Royale has a new uninteresting actor who's the worst casting choice I've ever seen. He's not popular like Brosnan and will never have that appeal. Brosnan had it with Remington Steel and before. He was a fan favorite to be bond. Craig? Who the hell is he? Not many women (who are a big part of Bond's box office) are hot for Craig here in the US. Brosnan was a major sex symbol and drew in decent size crowds of women as well as men.

Yes it does, nobody is denying that as HR said those are FF level numbers.

200 million is not FF #'s domestically. FF made just over 154 million.

Iron Man has a director with zero experience in these types of film and the character has little to no mainstream awareness not to mention marketing comes no bigger than Fox so that won't be an issue

i hope that the next bond movie (after casino) ends up having production delays, so that the movie can be postponed until a later date.. i'd rather that the bond franchise thrive, but not at the expense of Iron Man..

I think it might get a huge push if CR is a success to come out late 2007.

So is Casino Royale. The question is who will get those FF type numbers?

Dressing up a dead horse like James Bond with an average no name goon or a fresh and original concept like Iron Man? My money is on Iron Man.

By the way do you really want to play the numbers game? Outside the big 1 you keep mentioning, no Bond film has made as much as Fantastic Four. Even then, Die Another Day barely beats it and that no doubt is because of the Halle Berry (of X-Men fame) factor, not James Bond.

Most of Bond's movies would need to be calculated in inflation and WW to even make it a point,i was going off the latest figures,they are what matters,a franchise with huge awareness and a badass new Bond vs Batman in a iron suit ? DD numbers may be more in Iron Man's sights for his first movie

I dont even kno why this turning into such a huge debate, one of them is without a doubt going to move, and CR hasnt even come out yet, so we'll have to see how that does. And believe it or not, there are people looking forward to the new Bond movie, and like most mediums most of the haters represent a vocal minority.

Ok, you said Die ANother Day did well at the box office because of Halle Berry. If thats the case Catwoman wouldve been #1 at the box office. And please Storm/Halle Berry were probably the most hated part of the X-Men movies.

Hunter you're being ridiculous now. Comparing a horrible Ben Affleck movie (arguably Marvel's worst major release) released in February while most of the East Coast was burried in a Blizzard to a May 2nd release of a 140 million dollar Iron Man film directed by Jon Favreau. C'mon now.

Halle Berry is not a box office drawn and never has been. She's a non factor. She doesn't help or hurt a box office but makes the films easier to watch...in most cases.

So ticket prices haven't increased since 2003 when Daredevil was released?

Odds are that Daredevil's domestic beats Casino Royale's domestic take.

Iron Man's will soar past both.

Afflek was a star at that point and got it a huge opening,and it is far from the worst Marvel movie
Iron Man is in the same position of no mainstream awareness and without a big name,$140M ?

You throw around Jon Favreau's name like hes a big time director or something, he isnt Spielberg man, his name alone wont bring people to the theatres, damn your bias/fanboyism is hilarious.

I know this, shes one hot momma, but for YJ1 to bring out her name like if she sells tickets is ridiculous, at least you see this.

The bottom line: Crag does not have the box office draw of Pierce Brosnan who revitalized the franchise. He's horribly miscast, and Bond has never been consistently a blockbuster franchise though it's always been good enough to keep going.

Brosnan has never drawn a dime outside the Bond movies,why is Craig miscast ? because he's not a pretty boy ?

FF level box office is a realistic target for Iron Man. Which means that Marvel should keep the budget to around $ 100-110 million, rather than letting it inflate to $ 140 million (and where exactly did AD get that figure from?).

LOL! Back to square one. Sorry thats an opinion, not fact. We'll get the facts one Casino Royale's box office numbers come in.
