I think it could bomb or at least do very disappointing box-office numbers
It's the most top-heavy superhero film ever made. It's directed by someone who is not well-liked by the people I've talked to - those people who aren't Whedon-heads, or Red Coats. It's written and directed by someone who hasn't exactly ever set the box office afire. It's also someone who if not nearly as clever or as witty as he thinks he is, and I doubt he can table his own own ego long enough to tell a story worth telling. Let me ask; is there really a story here at all? I''ve been critical of the Dark Knight as of late, but the reason it was successful is that it had a story, something that you can really sink your teeth into. The most this film has is bickering superhero's somehow crammed together for an over-stuffed picture.
