    First Class it's something nobody expected anything from since it was basically an experiment. It was a critic darling but did not do gangbusters at the box office.

    Nope. You said just a few posts ago that they expected more from Cap and Thor, but nobody expected much from First Class, that it was an experiment.

    Now you're saying Fox wanted it to be a big box office champ, and it wasn't successful because it didn't live up to expectations.

    Can't have it both ways.

    In fact, the truth is, First Class surpassed studio expectations, which only further qualifies it as a success.

    And Marvel really isn't aimming at the domestic side of films.
    not to mention they keep the purse string tight ( Avengers was their most expensive film at a Buget of 220 million. everything else is at 150 million)
    Then their is the merchindising. Where THE REAL MONEY is Made. Hulk Gloves, Cap Shields IM repulsers Thor Hammers etc. action figuresThink how much Marvel is getting from that?

    I haven't been to a store that sells toys, or haven't been in a toy section at least, since Avengers came out, are there a ton of action figures?

    I think a fanboy is a guy who is a huge fan of something, not someone who doesn't like something.
    That would be like...an antifanboy.
    Like me and big zeke.
