So we're talking strictly box office wise here right? Not the characters themselves?

 

Cause I'm pretty sure even if MOS  gross like 500M, he's still an A-list  :)

 

P.S Sorry, just read the whole thread title and yeah, you're talking about box office, silly me  :lol:

 

I have preservation about MOS. I think the film will do well in US regardless cause of his brand name. But overseas, I don't see him as a popular character anymore, so it's a wildcard that depend hugely on the film's quality IMO. But right now I'm thinking 250M Dom and 450M overseas so I agree with you prediction.

No, strictly box office.

 

Think like a studio executive, not a fanboy.  :P

I left out any possible Batman reboot but unless it's total crap it will easily make the A-list (700+ m).

I think Thor has the A-list box office potential.

 

I would put Doctor Strange and GOTG in the C-list cause they're completely unknown properties to GA so I don't think their box office will be big, just solid enough IMO. 

 

The name Ant-Man alone is lame even to me as a comics fan so I figure that would put off people  :D Being the movie right after TA2 might help it, but that remains unknown still, so C-list with 300M sounds right atm. Also, I dislike Hank Pym, so yes, C-list it is  :P

Doesn't box office results indicate the popularity and likeability of a character outside of that particular fanbase in this case comic books?

 

I think the list should be more like this:

 

A List - > 600M

B List - > 400M

C List - < 400M

 

I don't think there is any need for anymore lists beyond C list.

 

A List Characters in movies past and present:

 

Batman

Spiderman

Iron Man

Avengers

 

B List Characters in movies past and present:

 

Superman

Thor

Captain America

X-Men

 

C List Characters in movies past and present:

 

Daredevil

Ghost Rider

Fantastic Four

Hulk

....and the rest.
