Iron Man 3 Makes Major Bank

Date: May 3

Everyone expected Iron Man 3 to do well at the box office, but not this well. We're talking Tony Stark stacks, for real. The film has surpassed both of its previous installments, as well as the other films from Marvel, so far, except The Avengers. Iron Man 3 is now the fifth-highest grossing film of all time, behind (in order) Avatar, The Titanic, The Avengers, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Not bad for a C-list comic book character that no one cared about for decades...
