550/600 million, I could settle for that.
It's a good start .

Looking at some of people guesses and squaring them off against last years performances...

2. Skyfall $1108,3 million
3. The Dark Knight Rises $1081 million
4. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey $1001,4 million
5. Ice Age: Continental Drift $877,2 million
6. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 $829,2 million
7. The Amazing Spider-Man $752,2 million
8. Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted $742,1 million
9. The Hunger Games $686,5 million
10. Men in Black 3 $624 million
11. Life of Pi $594,6 million
12. Ted $543,3 million
13. Brave $535,4 million
14. Wreck-It Ralph $435,3 million

There are some people that actually think it will get out done but les mis...all the way up to men in black 3...to hunger games.
what a shame if that's so.

Then again Iron man hasn't beat that Hunger games number(if memory serves). I have been saying Ironman numbers for a while now, perhaps I should reconsider.

No it hasn't so you can see saying $500-600 million is being conservative. Although outside of The Hobbit 2, IM3 has the best chance at a billion next year.

But recent history suggests it has an uphill climb to reestablish it's brand on film.
the only way man of steel would only gross 400 ww is if the summer competition
after earth , monsters University , word war z , the heat , white house down undercut man of steel at the box office but that will not happen because this is not going to be another green lantern . , henry cavill has movie star written all over him plus the cast and crew are incredibly talented this is going to be a hit with everyone .

I think if MoS can bring in over 300 million domestic it has a shot at a billion. And I wouldn't rule out the potential for MoS crossing the 300 mil domestic mark.

Yeah...SR's entire international take was just under its domestic take. Even when S:TM's international take was higher than its domestic, it wasn't much higher. So if MoS does do $300M domestically, I don't see it making that much more than $300M overseas. I'd expect a total of around $650M-$700M WW if that happens.

The overseas market has exploded since 2006 and people overseas love 3D so no matter what the movie does in North America I see at least 250mil for it overseas.

Right now I'm still thinking 230mil domestic and 265mil overseas. I'm not going to predict 300mil domestic for a reboot that has barely had any marketing.

Other people are free to do that but I'm waiting to see if WB continues to make the same mistakes they did with Returns and Begins.

Sean Gerber on the Batman-on-Film podcast reckons it will do better than Iron
Man 2. He said at least 750 mil.

I don't see why it would. I think $600M WW give or take $50M is a best case scenario, IMO.

This would be awesome and achievable. I'm just not ruling out a billion but I know it's a long shot. The way I see it though, you need a good amount of build up and awareness to hit a billion. 700+ million more likely for sure.

i can see where you're coming from but those film's were sequels of hit films and man of steel is a reboot Zack Snyder surrounded Henry in part 1 of his own film with crowe , Amy Adams , Diane lane , Michael Shannon ect with people who can act .

When this thread first started by the OP, I leaned in and thought conservative and went for 700 million WW but everything that I'm hearing and seeing and ABOUT to see, I'll gladly uptake that number to 800-900 million with the possibility of tip-toeing 1 billion. I think it's going to be a huge hit.
