Avengers is still the best film produced this summer. Everything that followed seemed so damn dull by comparison. That's a huge reason why box office numbers were coming up short for most everything else. When the best adventure film in a decade hits in early May, everything else seems boring by comparison all summer long.
Well I can't say exactly how much money the Colorado shootings cost TDKR, but one thing is for sure; The Avengers didn't have to contend with anything like that. Oh yeah, you might want to take into account that 3D ticket sales bolster any film's earnings significantly. Still, I'll admit 500 something million is impressive, but this achievement hardly makes every other summer release boring. You're getting into subjective territory there.
