Weekend Report: Iron Man 3 Takes Off with Second-Highest Opening Ever – Box Office Mojo

Congrats to you if you bought stock in Disney before it helped launch the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Easily the most successful launch in the Iron Man series and the fact that it even came somewhat close to reaching The Avengers is a shocker to me.

I’ll do a review of the film later, but the takeaway here is that Disney/MarvelĀ must lock down Robert Downey Jr. for as long as possible (his contract ran out with this movie).
