Despite the fact that I didn't like Man Of Steel as much as I'd hoped, I want it to do great business so WB can start forming their DC universe with confidence. I think Snyder will learn from criticisms this film received, which could make for a superior sequel.

I'm just glad there's no doubt whatsoever that we're going to get a sequel. I can't wait to see more of Metropolis Clark.

It was so important for Warner and myself for MOS to do well...I can now breath a little easier. I really want to see as much of the DC Universe as possible hit the theaters.

I dont know... aside from Batman and Superman and maybe Wonderwomen the rest of the JLA are pretty forgettable.

Though, I would be in on openning night for JLA when and if it ever gets done. Im all for good movies, period.

Still want to see Now You See Me. Will predict a pretty low drop for This is the End next week. I think Man of Steel will have a pretty average drop (50–60%).

You think anyone except comic book fans knew who Iron Man or Nich Fury were before the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Now they are household names.

I would think the JLA would be bigger names than the Avengers considering how popular the DCAU was. Avengers never had that kind of popularity until just now.

Man of Steel did better than previously estimated on Sunday.

Per Boxoffice.com:

Thanks to an especially strong Sunday hold helped out by the Father's Day holiday, Warner Bros. has revised its weekend estimate for Man of Steel to $116.725 million. That brings the overall domestic start for the film to $128.725 million. The film's Sunday take of $36.325 million was essentially unchanged from Saturday's $36.35 million performance. The official weekend actual gross for Man of Steel will be released later today.

I would only agree with Nick Fury. Iron Man was probably more known then any of the other JLA's that isnt Superman, Batman, Wonderwomen and probably Aquaman.

I just dont see what they can do with Aquaman to make him interesting. The same way Im curious to see what they do with Ant-man.

What? Iron Man had nothing at all outside of comics before the movies. The JLA was part of the awesome and well known DC Animated Universe. Flash himself even had a live action TV series in the early 90s.

Aquaman is actually a very good character. Its just that the general public is only aware of him through that Super-Friends TV series from the 70s that made him look like a complete loser. The New 52 Aquaman comic book though is very good and actually one of the best selling current comics. I remember back when the New 52 first launched, Aquaman was in the top ten sales for several months straight when not a single Marvel book was in the top ten. Aquaman was outselling even the big name Marvel titles like Spider-Man and X-Men.

Iron Man did have crappy cartoons in the 60s and 90s. And there's the Black Sabbath song, which though it isn't about Marvel's Iron Man did help get the name into people's minds.

Having said that, Iron Man wasn't that well known before the movies.

So, how long will it take Man of Steel to top Superman Returns b.o. performance? The end of the week?

It's at around $128M now, so probably Thursday or Friday.

However, if adjusted for ticket inflation, Superman Returns adjusts to $242.5M.

Adjusted for inflation, I think it can reach that total by next Sunday or get close. The Cinemascore grade was A-. The 50+ group gave it an A. That could mean some very strong daily totals. Not to mention kids being out of school.

Given that Pacific Rim is going to beat Man of Steel at the box office, this is good news for Del Toro!

I'd say MoS gets around $50m while MU will get probably $75m, if not more. Now WWZ could be close and I wouldn't be surprised if MoS comes in second.

There was a 90s Iron Man cartoon on FOX Family that my generation grew up with and watched so it kind of had some fan base. It came on after James Bond, Jr. I believe but the poster has sort of a point, I only really remember about three justice league members Aquaman should never be put on film.

Superman Returns dropped 58.5% in weekend 2 when Dead Man's Chest opened. Nothing opening this weekend will be anywhere near DMC's debut. Man of Steel definitely appears to be liked more by general audiences. I think it can hold at least 50% this weekend, but hopefully somewhere in the 40s. A 50% drop gives it $58.3 mil. Probably good enough for 2nd place. Assuming it can earn about $50 mil on its daily grosses, and by Sunday, it could have something like $237 million US.

Overseas, it expands in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Russia and China this weekend. It could reach $400 mil worldwide after Sunday, which surpasses SR's total output.

$300 mil US seems like a lock, and depending on the holds, $350 mil is possible. With 3D being more popular overseas, the foreign gross should be much higher.

It's a crowded movie market place right now and while decently liked Man of Steel doesn't appear to have the ecstatic responses I expected. Personally, I think This Is The End will have a strong hold next weekend - but that's because it opened on Wednesday, so no Friday midnights or front loading.

The most notable thing for Man of Steel is the fact it won't have Friday midnight showings so the Friday number is artificially inflated by roughly $9m. It also has Sunday, fathers day, with inflated performance. So in reality pulling about $50m would be normally equivalent to a 50% drop, but in terms of numbers it needs $58m which it won't get. That said, it should outgross Superman Returns (non-adjusted) on Saturday.

My guess for next weekend:

1. Monsters University $85m
2. World War Z $68m
3. Man of Steel $46.5m
4. This is the End $16m

I'm pinning my hopes on the A- Cinemascore grade that MoS received. Unless you count The Lone Ranger, Man of Steel is the last event Summer film for the general crowd. I think it's appealing to families which will help boost the numbers.

I don't think World War Z will have a huge opening. I'm guessing low 40s. There's not too much buzz for it and Pitt's largest opening was $50 million from Mr. and Mrs. Smith. No doubt Jolie helped with that number.
