Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3 not only crushed its competition, but beat its own franchise’s previous films by a longshot.
In 2010, “Iron Man 2” grossed only about half what the final installment did, with $623 million.
The third chapter is only second to “The Avengers” ($1.5 billion) in the Marvel movies.
