I'll agree on this part but if BVS is a bad movie overall then this goodwill might not last into JLA or even the solo Batman. Nolan's Batman is so great because of the story it puts Batman in. It was also terrible stories like Forever and Batman and Robin that ruined the character as well. If BVS has a poor storyline and a bunch of explosions, the Batman love will not last for mild fans of Batman. I wonder how much of that love is for Batman and how much is it for Nolan's story/vision.
Cap 3 makes more money for sure if Age of Ultron is as good of better than Avengers. How would that multiplier even work? Avengers boosted Winter Soldier and Iron Man 3. Age of Ultron would do the same. But would IM3 and Winter Soldiers also boost it? If Civil is as good as Winter Soldiers, it might have some legs like it's predecessor.
At one put people were sure BvS was going to beat Cap 3, now it's a whole different game.
Oh yeah of course. Nolan left the love for Batman in a good place. But if they start screwing up going forward, then that will all change. Just saying BvS is coming off a lot of hype and popularity for the character. It's upto the film itself though to keep and build on that or to just completely destroy all of that.
Right now people think their love for Batman and their love for Nolan's Batman is the same thing. But if BvS screws up then they suddenly might start differentiating between Nolan Batman(the one they love) and Other versions of Batman(the ones they couldn't care less about).
On the other hand IM gets away with IM2 and IM3 being sub-standard due to his massive roles in the Avenger movies keeping and further boosting his massive popularity up.
I think RDJ's performance in Avengers and how great the movie was over all gave fans and new fans the idea that IM3 was going to be great as well. It wipe the IM2 image out of their mind. The marketing of Mandarin and it's hype also drove this. Marvel looked to be doing amazing things with IM3 until people actually saw the movie. lol
IM2 wasn't bad; the story was just mediocre. RDJ was still great in it.
More like Red Hood. Lol. I'm thinking Zemo, though. Likely, he'll be the division of Hydra that researches magic and comes into contact with Dormammu or working with Mordo. The guy is German, and seeing as how they pick Thomas Kretschmann to play Baron Strucker, he is likely going to be playing a Hydra villain. It also makes more sense because Winter Soldier sets up Strucker already so why would Mordo even be involved? Plus Bruhl looks nothing like Mordo.
Apparently they've been in the same movie before. (please log in to view the image)
Zemo and Strucker side by side, the best of buddies. (please log in to view the image)
