    If you want to release it on dates that mean something to the movie but won't cause too much "o that's just arrogant patriotism" stuff; why not release it on december 7th? Maybe even have a tag line "day of infamy"

    Summer 2011 is going to be over saturated with superhero movies and the end of July,when most of the summer movies have been released,people will be tired of Superhero movies.The release date of Captain America should be moved or its going to make bad numbers at the boxoffice :csad:.

    I think Thor and Captain America should move.Captain America should be released the first weekend of May.That way it will be a much bigger hit :awesome:.

    Captain America has all the ingredients to be a very big hit.Its not just another superhero movie.Its combination of comic book superhero with WW2,fighting against the nazis...makes it something new,fresh and epic.

    But please...MARVEL,MOVE THE RELEASE DATE!!!:doh::doh:.

    we have no clue how any of the 2011 films will do, for all we know ones that folks think will do great could burn out and be crappy in BO and others you dont expect anything could be a big hit. As for the release date. For all we know maybe it could end up moving. We are well over a yr before release and dates tend to change from time to time.

    As both are Marvel productions,they could switch release dates.Captain America is more a crowd pleaser than Thor.:cap:

    Take a look at Iron Man 2 now.All reports are predicting a monster opening at the Boxoffice,even surpasing the first one.Captain America has all the ingredients to be a huge hit,but being released at the end of July,it has no chances at all :csad:.

    In the history of Boxoffice,very rarely a movie released at the end of the crowded summer movie season(end of july and August),has made huge numbers at the Boxoffice,and thats a fact.:nono:

    Captain America is the starting of a new franchise and a fresh,new Superhero movie that is set on WW2,making it more epic and fun than recently comic book movies.It deserves a much better release date and I hope Marvel will move it.

    I would even prefer to see it delayed to May 2012 and the Avengers to summer 2013,if that means that it will make better BO numbers and we´ll be sure they will make more Captain America movies.With a better release date,say first weekend of May or Memorial day weekend,Independence Day..etc..Im sure it could make Iron Man numbers very easy.:awesome:

    If making movie is as easy as making a family shots by camcorders then Captain America can move to Thor date. But as of right now with June start production date is a near impossibility to have a quality Cap movie released less than a year after. Thor on the other hand is well underway and might finish up as scheduled. Why would Marvel studios move Thor on another later date when Thor is a whole lot more ready than the Cap movie?

    The only possible way to your liking is to move Cap to May 2012 release. Actually that maybe a possibility if another snag happens just like the cast searching on March.

    I, on the other hand, like to see Cap released as scheduled. On that date, there will be no other big films that will cut its leg and if it's a quality movie the weeks after will be guaranteed as win. Of course there are many more Marvel movies inside the pipeline; Cap shouldn't logjam the arrivals of Dr Strange, Iron Fist, or any other possible Marvel movies. Granted the high quality has to be maintained, all Marvel flicks should done like in a (working) Japanese car plant - speedy and efficient.

    What makes you think Cap is more of a crowd pleaser than Thor? Maybe to Americans, but not to other people.

    Personally I'm looking forward to Thor more, seeing as it has an immense amount of talent behind it and i'm more into myth/fantasy stuff. I'm sure a lot of people will share my mentality.

    Both are going to be good movies. Ideally there shouldn't be any preference.

    yea thor is fine where it is and its almost done with first unit filming where as cap doesnt start filming to late june. so thor is ready to go for may next yr, sure july isnt the best place with the other films out against cap. but if it does have legs it could take aug over and be good. Then plus we already know avengers is already planning to start shooting in jan/feb 2011 and its getting may 2012 release date. things are already in motion.

    Ditto, I like Cap more than Thor but I'm looking forward to Thor's movie more because of al the talent it has. Not saying Cap's crew isn't talented, but Thor's is amazing!!

    I wouldnt really mind to see Captain America delayed to summer 2012 and The Avengers to summer 2013.That way they will have more time to make them even better.Think of The Avengers ,how big and complicated that movie is going to be.To have Thor,Captain America,Iron Man,Hulk in the same movie:yay:.As awesome thats gonna be,they are going to need more time to make it great.Can you imagine the action scenes of the Superhero team?.They must be huge.:awesome:

    You answered your own question right there, BECAUSE it's a guaranteed money-maker no matter WHEN it's released. Seriously, they could release their POS movie with giant robots destroying buildings on SEPTEMBER 11TH and it would still make a bajilllion dollars. The 4th of July weekend neither helps nor hinders its box office in any appreciable way, while it could(and WOULD) easily boost Captain America's.

    May 2012 for First Avenger would be a disaster because then the Spidey reboot would muscle Cap out of the way. Believe me, Sony will definitely make a play for that release date, but they can't touch it with Avengers there. Marvel needs a big bargaining chip in 2012 with Spidey, Batman, and possibly X-Men looming. No one will touch Avengers, not even BB3. And as far as Cap needing the marketable May release, doesn't the same apply for Thor? If anything, Cap would need to be delayed a full year and go to July 4th 2012 with Avengers in 2013. I actually don't like a May release for Avengers and would prefer they move to mid July. It's such a waste unloading the biggest CB tentpole ever in the first week in the summer with no build up.

    Cap's biggest problem is that it's buried between 2 blockbusters. And Harry Potter is bound to be huge and draw a lot of people to its second weekend. There's no guarantee that Cap will open #1 which really would put a crimp in its marketing.

    Having both Thor and Captain America be no doubt successes is going to take a lot of work in marketing.

    Think Favs is going to be pulling for Cap at the BO with his Cowboys and Aliens due out the following week? Good thing he ain't producing the Cap movie...
