Exactly!

When silvermenagerie notes 'nobody cares about Spider-Man anymore' that has got to be some of the craziest statements. Spider-Man is one of THE key characters of the Marvel Universe.

He is and always has been Marvels flagship character. That will never change.

[For the record, I submit that conventional wisdom dictates Superman and Batman are both more 'popular' than any other comics character. Favoritism is another subject.]

I think thats a given. Worldwide, its always been Superman, Batman and Spider-Man. With the foundation being built for the first two 80 years ago.

So...as predicted, 0% chance this turkey hits 400 million worldwide at this point.  

Another 2021 black eye for Feige and the MCU.

They gambled on some filler with BW, Shang and Eternals but it will turn around with Spidey, Thor and Strange. Not sure how Black Panther will fare without Black Panther and The Marvels will most likely suck. I watched Nia DaCosta’s Candyman and it was pretty lackluster despite having a good actor in the lead.

why is the int'l number $16MM lower than BOM? like it's a week behind.

TheNumbers always lags on international box office updates. But is always ahead of BOM on domestic updates.

I fear that not simply recasting black Panther is another serious miscalculation, as would be blowing another 200MM on The Marvels production budget.  Spidey is more of a Sony production but if it dovetails into the next Strange movie (as it seems to do), then that one should be fine. Is Thor actually in the Thor movie , or is it just going to be Lady Thor?

I believe all male MCU heroes are to be gender-swapped in P4, except for War Machine. War Machine will remain Don Cheadle. :/

Spider-Man will do well. Movies featuring the legacy characters will do fine. I think the new character focused movies will continue to struggle.  

 

My gut says Spidey gets to around $900 million, and Covid keeps it under $1 billion. Think Thor, Black Panther and Dr Strange get to around the $750 million range.  The Marvels is going to struggle and be lucky to hit $500 million.

Great actor, terrible Rhodey. I’ve already posted at length on why. And why Rhodey was one of my favorite Marvel characters as a kid. When I first discovered Iron Man, it was him during a Tony hiatus. Rhodes is my Iron Man. When Tony returned, I was like who TF is this guy?
