Until IM3 proves that it is on that level you shouldn't be comparing IM to those franchises and saying it can outgross TDKR because if we're going off of historical evidence nothing supports that idea.
Stop acting like The Avengers doesn't count for anything. In the eyes of the general audience The Avengers is Iron Man 3's predecessor, not Iron Man 2. And you want historical evidence? The Avengers is THE THIRD BIGGEST FILM OF ALL-TIME DOMESTICALLY AND WORLDWIDE. The Avengers is, as you say, "the turning point."

"I knew there was something wrong. It just took a while to dawn on me, or maybe I was just afraid to think it, but... you survived the destruction because you caused it. Raina wasn't the only one changed in there, and I'm pretty sure the DNA results that I'm running right now will confirm that there's nothing wrong with the data in my head Skye. There's something wrong with you." - Leo Fitz
