Re: Marvel release dates: Thor and The Avengers delayed a year

I'm not sure why people are concerned about release dates being too close together. Hasn't the box office shown that there can be multiple smash hits in one summer? 1989 is one major example. If the movie is good, then people will see it.

I can live with all of that.

As someone else said, I'd really like to see them get these right and build the perfect momentum for a badass Avengers movie.

Though I'm still skeptical as to how good Thor could be, even with Branagh at the helm.

I do believe the 'Chief' is Kevin Friege, head of Marvel Studios.
But is he just a glorified PR guy whose job is to stroke already overinflated egos, or is he someone with genuine power and authority who has the stones to put people in their places and is concerned with the project as a whole and not a few pampered meat puppets and their directors. Sure, IM and Hulk knocked it out of the park, but when it comes to doing the other movies and then tying them all together, will he crack the whip and get things done when they have to get done? I'm just cautiously optimistic about this. Heavy on the cautious.
