    Didn´t care much for that incident on the way to the Thor hammer either.

    Wish they had done that wth Maria Hill, though.
    THAT I would have loved to see.

    Maria Hill was for like 40 seconds onscreen and she´s already more interesting than him.
    You're on crack. Being contrary for contrariness sake.

    Hawkeye and Black Widow (they might recognize "that guy from Thor" and "the hot spy from IM2", but they wouldn't know anything beyond that) For that matter, the big bad reveal at the end meant nothing to non-comics folk (my friend with me asked if it was Galactus).

    Hawkeye, yeah, he's almost not even in Thor, if you didn't know to look for him in that movie, and didn't know about him beforehand you're going to miss him in that. Black Widow on the other hand was a pretty big part of Iron Man, and seeing how more people saw that movie than Captain America or Thor, I would bet more people knew her going into this movie then them.

    Yes

    Iron Man 2 Domestic DVD Sales: $121,766,912
    Thor Domestic DVD Sales: $22,678,239
    Captain America: The First Avenger Domestic DVD Sales: $30,331,073

    I hear there's a site that tells you how may people were in the room when the movies were being watched, but I haven't found it.

    Thor's probably my favourite superhero movie (Avengers included) but I have to say, Coulson was not likeable in Thor. He was a bureaucratic dick who hindered Thor while he was trying to get his hammer, stole the love interest's research for no real reason and we even got told by Selvig about "an expert in gamma radiation" who SHIELD took away and he was never seen again. Coulson was like a really, really petty villain in Thor.

    And they'll still refer to her as Scarlett Johansson.

    And they'll still refer to her as Scarlett Johansson.
    And they'll still refer to Fury as Jackson and Bad Mother Fucker, and they'll still call Iron Man Robert Downey Jr., so what's your point?

    She was a big part of Iron Man 2, the biggest of Marvels movies until now, so a lot of people knew her character going into this movie.

    True about Jackson. But my mother actually calls Iron Man "Tony Stark" and it's not like she's a comic fan or doesn't know Robert Downey Jr.'s name. To me, that says he's made the character his own more than Jackson has Fury or Johansson has Black Widow.

    I still maintain Johansson is horribly miscast. Could they have found a more wooden actress?

    Damn. I didn't realize Thor did the worst of all the Marvel movies. Even The Incredible Hulk broke over a million in DVD sales in it's first week of release. But Thor barely cracked over half a mill. Wonder why it did so "bad."

    Thor made 9 million it's first week on DVD and that list tracks DVD sales not blu-ray.

    It made 22 million it's first week on blu-ray and it was going up against the Star wars box.

    My wife and I laughed at people who thought it was Galactus. We were sure he was a Skrull!

    Oops. I blame it on the chin.

    I know all that. I still think it's a bit shocking it did that "bad" on DVD. I would think it could've at least cracked a million.

    Sales, what about rentals?
    I didn't buy Thor or Captain America, i got them from Redbox.
    And then there's netflix.
    Or on demand.
    Or video stores that apprently still exsist.
    Or illegal downloads and streams.
    What im getting at is, we can't really know how many people saw any of these movies.

    They sold 800,000 units of the Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack (which people opted for versus the dvd) and 550,000 of just the DVD. They went well past a million in units sold and made around 32 million that first week. And I imagine sales are pretty good all around on the Marvel movies.

    The funniest ones are people who thought it was hellboy or red skull. When Thanos turned , he had his very distinctive shoulder blades of his comic costume.
