IRON MAN 3 has already had the second biggest US opening of all time; second only to AVENGERS ASSEMBLE. The film has then gone on to dominate the US and International box offices. Figures making their way online show just exactly how ridiculously successful Ol’ Shellhead’s third solo outing has been so far. Be warned, the below numbers may make you go a little dizzy.
* The US release of IRON MAN 3 has added $72.5 million during its second weekend, with international markets taking in $89.3 million over their third weekend.
* The film has now earned $284.9 million in North America and $664.1 million internationally, totalling a massive $949 million.

I’m not one to particularly harp on about figures, but IRON MAN 3 is taking some serious fat cash for Marvel and Disney right now.
Current stories have Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel in discussions for two more AVENGERS films but no IRON MAN 4. Apparently, neither party see any reason to make a fourth solo Tony Stark outing. I’m sure the above figures may change things, though.
