Thor is a sequel though to two films essentially (one of them being one of them most lucrative films of all time). MOS had none of that and was fighting a much bigger current in terms of expectations. All things considered I still think MOS did pretty darn good.

Not to mention it had the whole "reboot stigma" against it.

I know no one who's saying MoS didn't do fine BO-wise. Of course it's done well. Honestly I expected a bit better from Thor2. But on paper, if you're a studio executive and had to choose between the two considering all the budget stuff and whatnot on which would be more likely to get a greenlight for a sequel(academic, I know since both are guaranteed basically) it'd be Thor.

If we're talking academic, they would also take into account what Craig and I said. Not to mention in the current of blockbuster sequels, it would also mean Man of Steel has a higher ceiling for in terms of B.O. total for a sequel than Thor 3 would, considering the origin story is out the way and (especially considering that the only superhero sequel that made more than it's predecessors happens to be that movie you hate ).

Man of Steel would get greenlighted more easily.

EDIT: Almost forgot Spider-Man 3 made more internationally than the first two. And X-men 3. Okay, that's not true. I was thinking more audience reception.

Many superhero sequels make more money than their predecessors. All the MCU sequels(3 so far) go up in gross with each sequel(I don't consider TA a sequel, it's its own franchise). SM3 made more than SM1 or 2. The first 2 X-sequels had a steady increase from film to film. TW increased from Origins and XMFC.

Yeah, for some reason my mind drifted more domestic with Spider-Man 3 and I was thinking more audience wise.

My mind wished those threequels made less.

NORTH AMERICA: 2013 Is A Record-Breaking Year

on December 29, 2013

Sunday, 12/29 Update: With a final push from a weekend that generated $201.3 million in reported grosses, 2013's total should hit $10.9 billion by December 31, which means it will pass 2012's record-setting domestic haul of $10.8 billion.
This accomplishment will come as a surprise to many who were quick to look at the year's many duds as a sign of a weak marketplace. Luckily, numbers don't lie. Moviegoers may have rejected the likes of The Lone Ranger, R.I.P.D. and After Earth but they lined up in droves for many others. The overall strength of December 2013's slate--combined with strong holdovers from November such as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Frozen--helped maintain a year/year lead was established a very strong summer season.
Check back in the days to come for updated official totals.

It already has. And it has also surpassed Gravity. And with markets like China and Japan still ahead it shouldn't have any problems surpassing at least Monsters University and Fast & Furious 6

It doesn't look like the new Hobbit will join the billion dollar club:

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug added $10.9 million this weekend, which brings its overseas total to $585 million. Including its domestic earnings, the movie has so far banked $833.7 million worldwide; even with China and Japan on the way, it's now unlikely that Smaug will join An Unexpected Journey in the $1 billion club.

Only 56 mil between DM2 and Frozen, and Japan still doesn't have Frozen yet. I think it will surpass DM2 at the end and becomes #2 movie WW of 2013.

Absolutely it can. Look at what Return of the King did 10 years ago. What The Hobbit barely did last year and how many movies now cross a billion. And their big blockbuster couldn't do it. I'd be really disappointed in it.

And lets not forget that the original LotR-trilogy didn't have any boost from 3D and IMAX, plus the market in countries like China was much smaller back then. RotK made only around $10 million in China while the first Hobbit made close to $50 million. And thanks to China the second Hobbit should make it past $900 million at least once it's released there. Stiil kind of underwhelming numbers. Personally I feel that while the LotR-trilogy was a movie event, the Hobbit-movies are more like milking money with nothing really new to offer.
