W.D., you bring up a good point about Thor, I never thought of that. Perhaps Thor now will be more of a moneymaker because of Avengers working its synergy through Iron Man 3 and the latter working its own magic through Thor.

Thor made $180 million domestic and $449 million worldwide in total. I really don't know much about all these superhero films, but I get the impression Thor might not be as popular to the public as other Marvel products. So perhaps if Thor is made with a little bit of whatever made The Avengers popular (haven't seen it) then maybe we will make more money.

That would seem to be key...now that Avengers was so successful, let's hope it informs the making of other Marvel projects from now on.

As a side note, I see that the next Thor is due for release November 8. This will never happen, but that would make for a killer experiment with a near simultaneous theatrical-DVD release. Imagine if the DVD were released on Tuesday, December 10? How would the holiday season affect such timing? Would the film still be viable in theaters even with the DVD on shelves? We'll never know.
