THE AVENGERS made $623.4 million in the US and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES made $447.8million. Making them the two highest grossing movies of the year. Disney has no interest in spending time and money on an Oscar push for THE AVENGERS. They think that they have a better shot with its animation feature films BRAVE, WRECK-IT Ralph and FRANKENWEENIE as well as the animated short PAPERMAN.
Warner Brothers is pushing for TDKR with a fill campaign.
