    You just talking, that's not a fact.All this popular talk is weak.If it came down to who is the best superheros and young people had to vote it would come down to superman and batmen.Superman have fans of all ages and many of them are young.That popular talk is a joke.

    indeed he might have fans of all ages. but the youth number isn't as many as twilight. no matter how ***** it is, it still can sell big.

    fans only contribute maybe 0.001% of the box office. The name itself will not sell. If it does, SIII, SIV & SR would have made millions and millions. We would have superman series as many as James Bond’s.

    so far the public isn't interested in this movie, judging for the numbers of view in youtube and facebook as compare to ironman 3. (comparing 1st teaser trailer)

    Let's be honest here-- If Returns never happened, then Man of Steel would be guaranteed some big bucks however, this is a reboot and the GA isn't far removed from the failure of SR. If MoS puts up ASM like numbers, I'd call that a huge success but since this is SUPERMAN, the first Iron Man would be a better comparison IMO. I'd expect an OW of $85-$120 Mil and a final talley on or around $300 mil domestic and $450-$500 mil overseas.

    I have a hard time seeing MoS putting up numbers equivalent to The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises-- The hype/popularity is nowhere near those levels and that's no disrespect to MoS (although Christopher Nolans' name is stamped all over this project so anything is possible.) I sure hope MoS exceeds expectations and hauls in some serious cash so WB/DC can get the ball rolling with Justice League ala Marvel/Iron Man!

    Forget get TDK/TDKR numbers. I think reaching $300 million domestic is gonna be hard. $220-250 million domestic should be the goal.

    I'm predicting high with $900M like Skyfall. Superman is a known brand. I think the marketing is gonna ramp up like crazy come closer to the release. Considering this is WB's next big franchise after Harry Potter and TDK, I think they'll be pulling out all the stops. I wouldn't be surprised if it goes over a $1bn either tbh.

    Twilight lol.The new MOS trailer got 2,637,946 views and it ain't been up 24 hours what are you talking about.

    The first MOS teaser didn't show anything and Iron man 3 showed the whole movie in the teaser.

    The public is interested in this movie.MOS was trending on twitter and yahoo when the trailer came out.

    we all want it to do great but superman is super in name only.

    lol. maybe u r new and wasn't around here 6 years ago.

    we were doing the same. singing Byran Singer's SR to the top, making wild estimation and against all the negative talks / rumours / leaks...
    how ignorant we went...
    Singer was among the best choice 6 years ago.

    just dont want u to get burn.

    Right now, if it's a decent movie, I say it gets around $260-280m domestic, $500-550m WW. Not amazing numbers but good enough for a sequel, which would have a good shot at making a great deal more.

    If it's a just plain awesome movie, then $330-360m domestic, $650-700m WW. Followed by a sequel with the potential to hit Batman numbers.

    That's what I am saying.If the movie good, the word of mouth will be good and it will make a alot of money.If the movie suck, the word of mouth will suck and it won't do good.So far it look good. people sound like haters when they say it's not going to do good, when they really don't know.

    I'll play. 280 to 310 mill dom. 250 to 300 overseas. Anywhere from 530 to 600 total as of now. That could change tho. The Buzz is pretty darn good.

    Your domestic total I am pretty much in the same spot but if it grossed 250-300 overseas that would be a disappointment. You don't think in the very least that Supes will fare better than Iron Man? Come on now :woot:

    That's because Superman Returns was too reliant on the previous franchise. I'm not sure fans were salivating to re-visit the Donnerverse. It didn't feel fresh. The trailer might have won some nostalgia points with older fans but it did little excite the world for the return of Superman. It had a s****y looking Superman with a s****y looking Superman costume, it had a campy as f*** as Lex Luthor, and it had a super kid. I know at the time people didn't want to rush to judgment but from the moment they unveiled Routh in the costume, there was a stink surrounding the movie they were never quite able to shake off. Knowing what we know now about that movie, it's amazing it did as well it did.

    This is the movie that should have come out in it's place. Had THIS trailer debuted back in '06, I can guarantee you the final numbers would have **** on what Returns did. This feels like this generation's definitive Superman film, not some throwback.

    I'm being optimistic and saying 800 million world-wide by the end of it. Unlike Spider-man (750 million WW) I will actually see it, but unlike The Avengers (1.5 billion) there is no momentum with Superman at the moment.

    A lot of people are going to be eating claim chowder. The reaction from this trailer has been overwhelmingly positive and all of a sudden it seems like the entire internet is excited for Man of Steel. I'd say the reception has been even better than IM3. If this movie comes out and is critically acclaimed it's going to do 800-900m. A lot of you are bringing up SR but that's not going to hold this movie back at all. It's been 7 years since that movie was released, a lot of people (like myself) who are going to go see this were only 11-12 years old when that came out and won't hold anything against Man of Steel because of that. Even with its luke warm reception that movie grossed 200 million domestically. If this is good, coupled with IMAX and 3D, it should break 300m at the very least.

    ^ Yes. Go to any fansite or forum right now and it's about 85% fangasms, 10% still wait and see, and 5% moaning. Not to mention the amount of coverage this has been getting is on the same level as IM3. This trailer has been ran on every blog and news site I've gone to since yesterday. Only a very select few films get as much attention as this has been getting. **** is real.

    Anything is possible. My guess on its b.o. take was as of right now. If they hit the marketing for it harder, then it will of course make more. Or vice versa if they dont. Don't forget that it has to be a good film to even have a chance at a big b.o. take. I'm sure it is but we dnt know for sure yet.

    Countless examples of the Internet losing their minds, nerdgasming over trailers to big genre films. All because its new footage. Thus its incredible and "everybody loves it!"

    Look no further than The Hobbit. Those trailers were nothing but 100% fan-******* (They sing! Just like in the books!). Terrible trailers but since they played to the devoted instead of the general public, they got a free pass. Only now are many realizing the obvious. An Unexpected Journey sucks and the whole Hobbit trilogy nonsense is a cynical cash-grab.

    Level of hype between this trailer and the Hobbit trailers are completely different, on another level even. This trailer has resonated with fans to an elevated level. Not a good comparison. Not to mention, like I said, this film is getting tossed around like only IM3 has in the past couple months.

    Superman Returns' trailers resonated with fans too and anyone to say otherwise is (terrible) liar. So again... we've seen these kind of reactions before.

    This is the knee-jerk fanboy nerdgasm reaction talking.

    I think 800 million.

    Marketing it with a big empasis on Chris Nolan producing it and the TDK trilogy will help boost up the BO, along with the two very good trailers really showing the film has emotion and scale.
