IM3 increased approx 25% in ticket sales from IM2. The rest was 3D. If you take a 25% bump for Thor, you have about 235 mill. So imo (Squaremaster now), it will finish with less than 234 mill. It'll increase for sure, but not as much as some might think.
While Hemsworth is becoming a bigger name in the industry, he hasn't quite reached "box office draw" yet as some of his films have had lackluster returns, Unlike RDJ, who's only flop since his career resurrection has been the Soloist with everything else clearing 100M.
The Thor brand does not have a great deal or recognizable characters, rogue or otherwise, outside of Loki. The villains in this film won't be known by many outside of the hardcore fanbase
Hunger Games: Catching fire comes out 2 weeks later, pretty much guaranteeing to gut out Thor's legs.
