Yeah but you have to factor in the 3-d which greatly helped the OW.
But yeah i do agree with the rest of your post. Iron Man will open huge and if the running time isn't too long , it has a very good chance of beating TDK's opening weekend.

Trust me, it'll happen regardless of the film's quality.
And there will Iron Man 2 fans who will mount a anti-Batman 3 campaign if that movie break IM2 opening weekend.
In both cases those are dumbasses because they should realise
A) records are always meant to be broken
B) geeks , nerds & comic book fans all over the world should instead take pride in this singular achievement :
"Iron Man 2 is going to break the records set by that POS New Moon "
