Track from fandango.

Adam johnson has some pop culture issues, but even he knows everything about "star wars" and the marvel heroes.

What a marvelous purchase.

It opens this weekend and it will open to big money.

If you look at the fan-ti cipation meter, it is way ahead.

"ednder's game" is in second place.

It is not a matter of whether he will win but by how much.

Some are reaching the north of $95 million.

If he goes north of 100 million, he will be next to spiderman, iron man, opening ahead of $100 million.

You think there is more momentum?

I call it the avengers lasting power.

It helps them launch the sequels.

As the third highest grossing movie of all-time.

Iron man 3 felt that effect, highest grossing movie of the year.

Floor will get some of that.

It opened up to $65 million in the first installment.

A lot of that, i think, is due to "the avengers." is the comic book popularity going to go on forever?

It seems it's been quite a while it's been doing well.

I feel like "superman" is different but spiderman, batman.

Why is superman different?

Because it's more important.

Dc has a different, darker tone.

Marvel is lighter, maybe because they are with disney now, but they want family-friendly movies.

It's going to keep going.

The president would like the movies to keep going until 2022 -2023. "thor 18." there are so many marvel characters they could keep reaching into these grad bags.

They are developing them in such fun, creative ways that you could put garbage man on the big screen.

He is not a marvel character.

You made up a new character.

He would make $90 million.

What about "star wars?" i was bummed out the cd date, december 2015. is that a problem?

-- i was bummed to see the date.

Everyone has opened during the summer.

Will that be a problem with christmas or the toys?

Anything star wars, people will be buying it.iger made a good point that avatar opened on the same date and it's now the highest grossing movie of all time.

Not his.

But this is star wars and i think it will do just fine.
