Avengers: Infinity War projected for 200+ Million opening.

Disney’s low-balling their own number, of course — they’re saying it’ll ‘only’ be $175 million or more — but the rest of the people in the industry are saying that Avengers: Infinity War will hit over 200 million in its opening weekend.  Will it?  I’m of several minds on this one.

An observation sparked by @SonnyBunch’s ranking of MCU flicks.


The list itself is OK, although I quibble that Captain America: The First Avenger is ranked too low. But while I agree that this is the best bit in all the films…
