The very name Bucky is stupid to me. I don't know a thing about the character, I just wanted to say that.

no problem spidey i know next to nothing on the character myself too. But like i said he could only be called bucky like 2-3 times in film, and rest of time by his first or last name. But back to topic on hand. i do hope we will get a good domestic/ww figures for the film.

Even if the movie sucks I hope it does well because I want Evans to be able to do whatever he wants to do.

Haha, so true. I had a dog named Bucky.

And I generally agree with your box office prediction too. As I said, I think the movie will do well, but probably be more of a modest success than massive mega-hit. And it's funny you bring up Star Trek, because while we were sitting here making Iron Man comparisons, I was thinking, "nah, if it's a really good movie, it'll get closer to Star Trek numbers than Iron Man."

Still too soon for me to make a call on Captain America. On the other hand, I do think Thor is going to surprise people like Star Trek and Iron Man did.

I also think Captain America has a lot more to worry about. Not to mention its Captain America, it may do great in the states but I don't see it doing stellar box office overseas. But who knows.

well who really knows how the film will do over seas. Plus for all we know it will probably just be called the first avenger over there and the invaders as i said could be the selling points they go with when promoting the film over there.

I think Thor will do 450ish WW... 200 and change domestic. Cap I see close to 200 give or take a few dozen million. WW will keep it under 400 million. It's solid profit, but not enough for Captain America 2/3. Thor, with those numbers, could get a sequel if they have a good story. Hemsworth is a hunk and the girls will be going gaga for that. Get some more buxom females and even more teen males will be hopping on the bandwagon. Keep Branagh as director to ensure the franchise keeps its mature, thematic roots and Shakesperian feel so that older audiences won't lose touch with it. Don't get too cheezy when Thor/Loki come to Earth. Joe Johnston's Captain America just has fail written all over it. Just sounds eerily similar to a Stephen Sommer's G.I Joe to a lesser degree but similar nonetheless.

I don't follow you, Bucky is essential in the Captain America mythos, I don't see how to make a captain America movie without him.

For the box office, everything will depend, but I feel that the movie will don't work, simply because today, for what I have seen, it's not "cool" to be or to have a character so patriotic, I hope the movie sincerely will have a good success, I really like Captain America, but in France, a good part of the population have an anti-american feeling, so everything will depend how Marvel will sell this movie in the other countries.

There are also the fact that the movie have already a bad reputation, how peoples can have this bad feeling ? I have no idea specially because the movie is not already begun to shoot, for what I have seen it's like that in the internet world, everything is already cool or bad before to have seen the movie itself.

So I think this bad feeling will continue over and over again in various board like a mantra, and simply destroy the reputation of this movie, but I really hope that this movie will have a good success.

I'm still thinking that Thor is going The Incredible Hulk route. It's early going though so I will undoubtedly change my mind. Hell I think that Cap could easily go that route too.

i am sure both thor and cap will do well enough. if they score anywhere near 400-500million total box office it will warrent at least one sequel. i see no reason why there couldnt be at least a sequel for the both. More so if they do well in their runs.

I can see this movie breaking 300 million. The trailer seemed of to start the hype train off well.

If the movie gets good word of mouth, I'd be surprised if it doesn't break 300 million. Cap is more popular than IM was before his movie right now, afterall.

300mil is not an easy number to get. The X-Men were more popular than Iron Man and none of those films have cracked 300mil. Even X2 which the critics and fans and fans of the movie series loved.

200mil is possible but 300mil would take a pretty awesome opening and or word of mouth. I don't see that happening.

I think we can all agree that, with the death of Bin Laden, Cap's US box office is gonna be BIG.

I didn't even think of that. You may be right. If we tap into patriotism like after 9/11, Cap will be a beast.

I wonder if Marvel is slapping themselves right now, thinking, "DAMNIT! If Cap came out this weekend, it would be HUGE!"

The death of Osama Bin Ladin isn't a small thing. This news will carry on for months! And Cap releases in July.

I seriously suspect that Bin Laden´s death will increase the hype for CA´s movie a lot. The movie will arrive just when people will be thrilled with pride for the US special forces´ achievement, mostly in US, of course, but also a little in the countries where the threat of Al Qaeda was more palpable, like UK. This was a pretty huge thing, the man has been hunted for almost two decades, even before 9/11.
