I think it’s very, very likely.
Reason being, Thor earned just $449 million in 2011. It’s sequel, Thor: The Dark World, earned almost $645 million in 2013.
Notice the upward trajectory? And do you know what those prior movies didn’t have?
So, while Thor: Ragnarok has yet to released in North America it’s already earned over $109 million and has yet to be released in the United States, Canada, China, Japan, Germany, Russia and Mexico
So, it’s expected to just earn just under $300 million from all those countries!? Let’s see…it’s likely to earn over $100 domestically, meaning that it would be pulling in just under $200 million from Canada, China, Japan, Germany, Russia and Mexico.
And that’s HIGHLY unlikely. I expect a more reasonable estimate is somewhere in the $500-$600 million ballpark, which considering it has no competition till Justice League comes out November 17th, I expect that it will have earned at least $700 million by that time, well on it’s way to a billion dollars.
