Gonna see all of the big ones.

I actually think the new Spiderman movie will be the best film out of them all.

I didn't say, most popular or most profitable....

Avengers has already made $178 million overseas:

It's also projecting to open at ~$150 million in the US.  I don't know which movie will make the most $, but I'm pretty sure I know who won't be last.

I hope they all flop so Hollywood stops making these garbage CGI pics.

I know in my heart that will never happen.

But how many times are they going to make an extremely fake looking Hulk and Spiderman fight scene where they are smashing through a city? This doesn't interest me in the least and I don't really understand the hype.  

You know what, when are they going to stop all this CGI crap? It's not impressive anymore at all.  I hate that these movies keep making 100+ millions when they don't deserve it.  

Want to see a good movie?  Netflix "The Vicious Kind"... This movie probably made no money and it will never be seen by anyone sadly because it doesn't have CGI effects.

I hate hollywood and the direction its going.

I think Batman will easily top the other two.. it's actually being directed instead of produced.

Batman...don't think I'll pay money for the others and am likely to skip them entirely

I think Batman will edge out Avengers, but I think its going to be closer than people think. The last one made a ton because of Leadgers death kinda hyped it up. Not to take anything away from his performance(saw it twice in the theater), but that defiantly got the casual fan into the seat the first time.

But I also wouldn't be suprised if Avengers beat Batman out. Marvel has done really well promoting the movie, starting in 08 with Iron man, leading into Hulk, Ironman 2, Thor and then Cap. And this is the first time we really get to see ALL the heros on the screen at the same time. And with Joss Whedon writing and direction its going to be good, the guy hardly ever misses.

I will be seeing all of them. But If I had to pick on...Batman is my favorite, but Ive seen Bats on screen, and its the Avengers first time, gotta support the newbies.

I predict all of them will do very well box office-wise, but I'm only really excited about Batman. I love Christopher Nolan and TDK is among my top movies overall. I will be huuugely disappointed if this last one fails to live up to my expectations.

I'm gonna see all of them, but I've been waiting for Batman 3 for like a long time.

I prefer DKR, then Avengers

not that interested in Spiderman, but I might end up seeing that too

I'm all set with spider man, far too soon for that reboot. I just don't care to see the orgin story for the second time in what...8 years?

I'm pumped for both the dark knight rises and the avengers. Been hearing awesome things about the avengers and nolan doesn't disapoint so im sure both those will be awesome!

Apparently Sony has to keep pumping out movies every so often otherwise Marvel will get the film rights back. They only rebooted because 3 was such a mess and so were all the spec scripts for 4 and the actors didn't want to do it.

So expect constant spider man films till they stop making money...

Well if overseas is any indication the Avengers is going to crush it.  Took in 178 million and was #1 in all 39 markets it opened in last weekend.  And that doesn't even include China, Russia, and Japan (it will open in China and Russia this week and Japan in August).

Apparently Battleship has been out for a couple of weeks overseas and is at 170 million to date from the foreign markets (it opens May 18 here).

Not sure I like all of these US movies opening overseas before the US, but I'm sure that stuff is thought out and done for a reason.

That's why they keep rolling out x-men movies and there are always an appearance by Wolverine.

Plus Wolverine is awesome and lives forever so it makes it easier.  I mean seriously, who doesn't love Wolverine and Hugh Jackman was perfectly cast.
