Regarding Thor TDW... [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it's fair to say it will have a sizeable Avengers bump, but I also would not rule out extra factors such as the first movie not doing too poorly by itself, the notably bankable Loki (Thor himself is nothing to pass over, but after all, the trickster's managed to weasel his way into the same number of films so far!), and lastly the new "Game of Thrones" pedigree via director. Last I heard, people were still interested in GoT and a similarly invoked "style" could get some crossover. Hopefully without Anthony Hopkins going the way of Sean Bean. Shocked


I'm hopeful that DoS could deliver a strong performance, but I think that could mostly rely on a strong promotion. Emphasizing what is in the film (please no last minute character design changes Frown), and how it will be new sights, new faces, lookatthatfulldragon, etc. Honestly, since AUJ has already "bothered" so many critics, DoS could benefit simply from not "dragging" as much and having less exposition... maybe. Perhaps the HFR won't be as polarizing this time, too. (Since it's been "experienced" before.)
