Exactly.

True. But I think anyone saying this movie is going to make more than a billion is deluding themselves. Still, stranger things have happened.

I agree with this. But, the fact is that it doesn't need to do these numbers, or even close to them, to be a success.

Alto of people said IM3 would not make a billion, some were predicting 750-850M.

Nothings set in stone, a lot has to do with reviews and perception. But you Tube did a survey and Thor has the 2nd most views for any Superhero, behind Batman, and ahead of Superman and Iron Man. Plus the rising stock of Hemsworth and Hiddleston as actors/superstars. Hemsworth will be appearing in a possible academy worthy picture in Rush, directed by Ron Howard, just before this film comes out.

Then there is the "Avengers boost". We don't know how much it will be, but this will make significantly more than the first, and I'm fairly confident it will outgross man of Steel.

My only reservation is how much Hunger Games Catching Fire takes away from it. But this could easily perform like Skyfall did last year, and I'm betting it will make more U.S. domestic than Skyfall did, as it will have 3D boost.

What did they mean by "2nd most views"? Are they talking about trailers or what, because I'm sure IM3 and MOS' trailers have more views.

No, you're the onyone that see's that because that's what you want to see I promise you none else see's that. Oh and budget inflation clearly exists, since the value of the dollar decreased that 100 million is 2003 dollars it's not the same a 100 million 2013 dollars.

Views in general. Not just trailers but fan videos, video game clips involving the characters, etc...

Oh, budget inflation clearly does exist. However, when people are talking about a film's gross they typically aren't subtracting the budget.

Basically this is what I posted in a nither threa, BigThor:

I know it's kinda off-topic, but I wanted to put this here (just to show how popular Thor has become). It's an article, in portuguese, from a big brazilian site, showing the most popular heroes in youtube, with data collected from the ''Geek Week''.

Thor is in the 2nd place, behind Batman, with about 2.1 billion visualizations.

Quote:
1. Batman (7 bilhões de visualizações / 71 mil horas)
2. Thor (2,1 bilhões de visualizações / 66 mil horas)
3. Super Homem (Superman) (1,7 bilhões de visualizações / 14 mil horas)
4. Homem de Ferro (Iron Man) (1,4 bilhões de visualizações / 20 mil horas)
5. Os Vingadores (The Avengers)(1 bilhão de visualizações / 31 mil horas)
6. Wolverine (540 milhões de visualizações / 7,8 mil horas)
7. Homem Aranha (Spider-Man)(340 milhões de visualizações / 7,4 mil horas)
8. Capitão América (Captain America)(280 milhões de visualizações / 4,9 mil horas)
9. Liga da Justiça (Justice League)(220 milhões de visualizações / 3,2 mil horas)
10. Deadpool (200 milhões de visualizações / 8,9 mil horas)

Gotta wonder how he has so many hours of footage. Probably the Loki factor boosting him up. Still, it's very interesting that he is beating out IM and Spiderman.

Just like the Joker factor boosting Batman's views up, hey it comes with the characters.

I'm not predicting a number but I think this movie is just gonna do goddamn fine. There's so many things going for it. The Avengers boost, Chris and Tom's growing rep and popularity as actors (and being a hit with the ladies doesn't hurt one bit), the GoT factor.

And it won't hurt that the Hollow Crown series, blockbuster film adaptations of a series of Shakespeare's history plays starring Tom Hiddleston, will have just played out on PBS. And before you go writing this off, think Pride & Prejudice, Upstairs Downstairs, and a little thing called Downton Abbey. Big PBS productions have the ability to tap into the public consciousness in a huge way. The scale and timing of this, especially with Tom's titular role in Henry V wrapping up the series in mid October, could conceivably bring a whole new audience to the table.

I voted 800 million, by the way, which I initially considered as being a little too optimistic for my own good. But who knows. Taking everything into consideration this is starting to sound less and less like a wild imagining. The Hunger Games juggernaut notwithstanding.

Not writing it off at all. Christopher Eccleston's Doctor Who audience as well. Let's just say there'll be plenty of interested parties.

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that you would be dismissive, just in general.

Hoping the interest and audience is huge - and that the movie really delivers the goods. Not expressing any doubt, I just want new interest to grow, snowball style, as we roll on to towards billion dollar Thor 3.
