Do you think the Superman movie will gross more than any (Nolan) Batman movies? Just curious, I think so though. What are your thoughts.
I really hope so. The DC cinematic universe could use a financial and public-awareness push from the get-go, and I'm hoping that Supes can do at least just as well as the Nolan trilogy. This is my most anticipated movie of 2013 - only three more weeks before its release here!
I don't think Man of Steel will. Even with the increase in ticket prices I think it will have a hard time competing with Dark Knight. Now if Man of Steel is well received and they make a sequel that is highly anticipated then it could perhaps compete with Dark Knight.
maybe. idk. but unlike the nolan batman movies, man of steel will have my money for a ticket.
true for me as well
I hope Man Of Steel is good and if it is, I hope it does well, just as good as TDK, but i think it will atleast match batman begins
I don't think it's unreasonable to think it could. None of Nolan's Batman films gave into the 3D craze so they lost on that very lucrative segment of sales. MoS will be in 3D and based on the early screening buzz, is going to get good scores from the critics - which often translates into better long-term performance following opening week.
I could be wrong, but I don't think so. While the movie does have the Superman name behind it, the cast is largely made up of people who don't really sell movies in name alone. I think there are people who still feel burned by Superman Returns (awful). Also, The Dark Knight was the best Nolan Batman movie...Dark Knight Rises was kind of terrible.
There's also that Walmart early ticket thing. I could be wrong but I thought it was if you pre-order the blu-ray at Walmart, you get a ticket. So if they somehow include the blu-ray pre-roder cost into the movie sales, it'll add more. Pretty sneaky, sis.
I'm not saying I don't think it will be great, I definitely think it will. However the second two movies I think there is a pretty low chance of being outgrossed. Sequels have a chance to establish themselves, so people are usually more eager to see them. Maybe it will outgross Batman Begins. But I think we'll have to wait for a Man of Steel sequel to even consider if it will outgross TDK or TDKR, just because those two movies had a great track record to their advantage. Again, not at all saying I don't think Man of Steel will be great. I have really high hopes for it!
