As the industry watches the incredible global success of Iron Man 3, we now know that last year's phenomenal reception of The Avengers had a big hand in increasing the domestic and overseas appeal of another Tony Stark-led sequel.

 

For instance, 2010's Iron Man 2 took in $312.1 million stateside and $310 million in foreign markets. With the triple-whammy combo of increased Avengers interest, further expanding markets, and premium 3D prices, Iron Man 3 is already at $506 million overseas--and counting.

 

With a clear path toward at least $1.1 billion worldwide (and likely more), Iron Man 3 is setting a high standard for the next Marvel Cinematic Universe installments.

 

None will be tested sooner than Thor: The Dark World, releasing this November... (more)

Thor will also increase, but no the way Iron Man did. I see around 200M increase, to finish just around 650M WW.

A lot. Both dare I say are locks for 100M OW/300M+ Not quite there for CAP2, but Thor 2 sure am. Need to see more of CAP2 before I get over 100M/300M+ One thing is certain though the future looks bright for Marvel.

You need to check into rehab if you think TA2 isn't going to make a dent in AVATAR 2's box office.. You are stoned dude and need to step back and re-evaluate what your saying... :sherlock:

AVATAR 2  At best will do around 475-500M Domestic

Thor 2 will gain enormously because of Loki popularity. he was the breakout of TA and is #1 with women.

 

Cap should get a bump too but I didn`t care for the first movie so I don`t know what fandom is like,etc. Thor fandom, OTOH, is the one I follow because of Thorki and Hiddlesworth and it`s completely crazy. It grew so much you wouldn`t believe it.

Thor will see a massive increase, because Loki, and Thor himself have become hugely popular since. Can't say the same for Captain America really, but it'll probably see a bump, though not as pronounced as IM3's has been, and what Thor's will be.

Thor 2 will likely fly past 200 million domestic.

 

3D prices help IM3 but Im3 looks like it would have crossed 1 billion even without 3D if it lands near 1.2 billion.

 

The only recent films to have actually made a billion without 3D are TDK, Avatar, DH2 and TA and TDKR...

Nah... The 3D share of it's OW was around 50%. It's going to drop with upcoming weekends, but I don't think It would've crossed 950M without 3D. Maybe not even 900M WW.

I think any thing Avengers related (except GOTG) is bound to have a huge increase.  Look, a massive, massive number of people saw and loved the Avengers, sometimes multiple times. And just thinking about it logically, I don't see why such a large audience that loved these characters in TA would see their solo films coming out, and say "eh, I'll skip it."  Everybody knows and loves Thor and CA now because of Avengers, so why would enough of that audience blow off their solo films for them not to increase significantly?  Thor is going to jump alot because of Hemsworth's popularity (I do think the Hiddleston popularity is a bit overstated on here), and CA gained alot of female and kid fans, too. The Avengers effect has to be real.

Cap's fandom is more fanboy-driven than Thor, but not by much. Cap is really popular with the females as well cause of Chris Evans and the Stony stuff. Surprisingly, Cap's female fans are more quiet and calm compare to his fanboys who rage about every freaking small thing  :lol:

IM3 would certainly pass 1B without 3D. Its overal scale is just there.

Yea... Honestly we can't know for sure if it's going to act the same way it did for Iron Man. He was like the main character in the Avengers and universally loved. We don't really know how much people like the secondary characters, and if they're going to turn up to their movies just for doing a few jokes in the background.

Hems did well outside of Thor since CitW, Red Dawn and SWATH (that had polarizing KStew factor) opened respectably for their type of a movie. So drawing power is there and this is his identifying character.

Yeha, IM is an A List now and Z-list friendns are B-list after Phase 1 and TA. Thor will enter A-list after Thor 2 performance. Done and done.
