I hope this will make the Disney brass re-consider on grabbing back all the old properties. People can throw out money talk all they want, but this movie is a helluva count argument if you ask me. A disney spiderman?? Money. A Proper X-men?? MOO-LAH!!! I know, i know ramblings of a mad fan, but dayum those numbers HAVE to make you wanna look into it.
I'd say don't get your hopes up on Spidey or the X-Men joining the MCU anytime soon.
Also I have to challenge the constant bringing up of Gone with the Wind. Yeah, there's been some crazy inflation, but at the same time, movies like GWTW didn't have to deal with nearly as much competition (both in the theaters and from other mediums like Television, the Internet and Pirating.) Not to take anything away from GWTW but comparing the gross of old movies to new movies is apple and oranges IMO.
