Love it so, and it deserves all the success!
Ugh, I have to get 4 wisdom teeth removed. I'd replay TWS in my head too if I wasn't going to be heavily sedated.

The last time Marvel made me this happy was when the Avengers came out. Cap is my favorite Marvel character, and watching the success of TWS makes me beyond happy...

Of all film studios, or even all entertainment, I think Marvel has given me the most joy.



You've done good, Cap.

Seriously if TWS hits $700M

I don't think it has enough juice to do it...... but what the heck I am rooting for it. For me, its the 3rd best movie in MCU after TA & IM.

Well if it has the same drops as Thor 2 internationally it will make $450 million+ and it's likely to do $250 million so it has plenty of juice. The $700 million predictions aren't far fetched. It depends on how TASM2 affects it.

I think it'll cross the 700 million mark.

I think Talisman was referring to a Thor fan/troll on another board LOL! One who has been insufferable in the Cap threads….

The "fan" was willfully ignoring the fact that most Cap fans actually really like/love Thor and the movies are coming out of the same studio AND that the fact that Cap is being so well received all over the world and critically means that the benefit goes to Marvel Studios and how the rest of Phase II and the next phase will hopefully pan out in order to constantly comment that Thor kicked Cap's butt in total franchise dollars and that Cap is a flop compared to Thor, etc.

Fun times.

Oh, I'm pretty sure $700 is a lock at this point. Which is amazing for Cap.

So why would getting $725 million specifically make him go ballistic?

I think $715-20m

But I really want $725m because I want to see a certain Thor fan go ballistic.
Is it leaving China completely, or just losing a ton of theaters?

Because then it would be outgrossing the Thor franchise worldwide.

Bingo.

He's been on several different boards with different names for months. At first he was confident Cap wouldn't pass Thor in the US because he wasn't as popular. Then he changed his tune saying of course he did because his name is Captain America and he has no competition but would never pass Thor WW because everyone else hates Cap and loves Thor.

Then when it became obvious Cap would pass Thor WW he started bringing up how Cap was still behind in total franchise $$ at the box office (not counting those pesky DVD, toy and merchandise sales) and needed to make $724 and some odd dollars to pass Thor.

Now that it's getting close it's all a conspiracy by Marvel to promote Cap over Thor and steal his rightful place as #2 behind Iron Man by giving Cap that awesome much coveted early April release and making a lot of critics to say it's a great movie.

Fun stuff.

Oh but it hasn't done so - combined. So even though TDW will be behind TWS by $50m+ the franchise is still bigger since the first Thor movie made more than the first Cap movie.

Completely. China has quotas and a set amount of days foreign films can be in the market. Cap gets, I think, 30 days. Iron Man 3 had a couple of weeks longer stay since it was considered a joint US/China production because they filmed an extra scene in China and I think sold distribution rights to a Chinese company.

Sounds like the guy's mind is a freaking snake pit.

Cap doing good is great for Comic movies in general and the MCU specifically.

Noooooo…. definitely not BigThor. BT is good yo!

This other poster is, in my opinion… a case study I'm not sure he's on these boards though, but I'm not in the Thor section enough to know. He is on the website that shall not be named and was floating around on BOF for a bit until he was called out by everyone.
