Thor Beats Off Orson Scott Card

...with a little help from Loki.



Source: UPDATE: Domestic Box Office Top 10: ‘Thor 2? Eyeing M To .7M Weekend

According to deadline.com, Thor: The Dark World will end the weekend out preforming many estimates and should earn somewhere in the $85-87 million range, easily taking the number one spot away from Ender’s Game. Thor and his evil half-brother, Loki tag-teamed the box office to easily spunk out a win all over Card’s face. Not content with keeping it in the family, there is still a three way for this weekend’s sloppy seconds between Bad Grandpa, Last Vegas, and Free Birds.

Upon hearing about his position in the box office sandwich, Orson Scott Card was overheard to say that: “…when popularity is the enemy of my work, then the people who are paying me for my bigotry have no choice but to change governments, by whatever means is made possible or necessary.”

That seems a bit excessive, this reporter can think of quite a few people who wouldn’t have minded ending the weekend in Card’s position.

Card is a "card" all right.

Let's "change governments, by whatever means necessary" because some guys prefer guys.

Heh, I was in China during the Avengers runs, and the number of photoshopped movie posters at theaters was a load. One included cosplayer Riddle dressed as the Wasp photoshopped into a montage that included Giant Man and Ms. Marvel.

I find this especially amusing considering the effort put to market Iron Man 3 in China. Presumably it's Chinese marketing firm and individual theaters also grabbed or shopped any cool looking Avengers stuff they could find (printing is cheap in China, you can easily download an image off the web and get it blown up poster size with professional quality).
