    @superman81 About Superman telling off the Military:

    I liked it, like he told them, they're afraid of him because they can't control him, but it doesn't make him their enemy. He's Superman and the last thing he needs is somebody as selfish and untrustworthy as the military keeping tabs on him.

                @superman81@justinishulk Oh, So that's what remember seeing him in once. I don't know if like that idea of him Lex Luthor, but I just don't know, maybe he would play Lex Luthor pretty well.

                      Been watching the foreign numbers for MOS this morning and it looks like it did really well. Looks like it pulled around 25 mil in China. Box office mojo updated their foreign numbers and has the international box office at nearly 190 mil. It's a far cry from IM3 but still good.

                          just read the article from your link

                          it's seems that while the numbers are not as good in the US government in the other countries they will continue to grow.

                          maybe they would be even better if our MoS was chinese

                            me and friends have already pre ordered the tickets, total of 8 I believe the theater is going to run out of space.

                              @justinishulk Mark Strong ? Isn't that the actor who played Sinestro in the Green Lantern movie ?

                                @ghostman careful der mate, facts are not welcome here... DC fanboys will come after you comparing MoS with IronMan 1 which was released 5 yrs ago in 2D. They dont have brains to think MoS is in 3D + what was the ticket cost 5 yes ago.

                                I agree to every word you have said - cant be explained better!!

                                  I got to admit, I'm absolutely shocked by these numbers for WWZ. That film was getting dumped on so much by basically everyone, including Brad Pitt, if rumors are true. So, congrats on being a relevant hit, WWZ, and not the bust that you were almost universally predicted to be.

                                      @h-ryuga It will end up at +800 million total, around 250 million more than the first Iron-Man.

                                      So I would say they are pretty good numbers for a franchise-starter.
