vitieddie if the Avengers were to topple AVATAR I wouldn't be mad one bit but I just don't see it. The fact is that Marvel is making movies for their fans and sadly that doesn't necessarily translate well over all groups. But I will do my part, that you can bet on. I'd be happy just with beating TDKR

Avengers will not beat Avatar. Actually, I don't think it will beat TDKR. As much as I want Avengers to topple Batman, there is too much going for Bats. The franchise is still on a high from TDK and this will be the end of the trilogy (look how Potter has done in its final film). Bats still has the #1 superhero popularity over the likes of Thor, Iron Man, etc...

So yeah, TDKR will win the battle but not the war. Think of the cash the Marvel movies have made (Iron Man 1 and 2, Hulk, Thor, Cap and then Avengers) and compare that to DC movies. Don't forget the DVD sales and merchandise as well. In the long run, Avengers/Marvel wins.

It's hard to imagine something beating Avatar, except maybe Avatar 2.  As well as HP has done, it's not even halfway to Avatar's total.  It will tight between Avengers and TDKR.  I could see a split where one wins the global box office and the other the domestic box office.  I'm looking forward to both, but Avengers will be a life long dream come true.  It will something we have never seen before, a superhero team on the screen together.;

While I believe it's going to pull in serious bank next year, Avengers won't even come close to besting Avatar. I don't think it'll even be THE big film of next summer. I think that title is going to go to Nolan's swan song for his Batman trilogy. As one of our illustrious maniacs likes to say...it will own son!

Still, I think Avengers will do very well and cement Marvel Studios' success at bringing their properties to the big screen. I know Fox won't give up the X franchises and Sony won't part with Spiderman, but I'd like to see Marvel/Disney open it's wallet and buy back the Fantastic Four franchise from Fox.

Even if Avengers doesn't beat Batman next summer I'd be happy with second place.

 But Avengers beating TDKR is likely a pipe dream. Other than Iron Man the other Avengers properties haven't done breathetaking numbers so I can't really see a movie where the properties are combined doing better than the individual parts. Maybe slightly but I don't know. TDKR is going to own 2012 mark it down.

I was on here saying that POTA looked like it was going to suck... well, I took the kids to see it and it ended up being a great movie. I had so much speculation on how does this happen, how can that possibly happen, etc etc and the movie pretty much answered all of that for me... proving, once again, that until we actually see any of these movies there's no way we can say how good they will or wont be.

 momitchell7 so true. Apes was excellent, easily the best film I think I saw this summer and I was thinking the same as you after I left the theatre. You just never know sometimes. I wasn't even enthused when I first heard about the apes prequel and now I can't wait for another one and I'm telling all of my friends to check it out.

I think TDKR will beat The Avengers by a landslide! Even though i looking forward fto both movies. But with the teaser trailer i saw for TDKR, i was more pumped for tht then i was The Avengers. And let's not forget about The Amazing Spider-man! How well will it do???
