Although Marvel Comic's Iron Man 3 has yet to open in the United States, it is already a financial success internationally, opening to $195.3 million in 42 markets, blasting past The Avengers' overseas opening of $185.1 million!
The last installment of the Iron Man series, starring Robert Downey, Jr., as Tony Stark aka Iron Man, made only $100 million on its international debut. This may indicate that the next Avengers movie will possibly break Iron Man 3's overseas opening. The Avengers was even bigger nationally, which bodes well for Iron Man 3's stateside opening weekend beginning on Friday, May 3rd.
