Is Ironman really that big a draw without Avengers? Coming off of IM2 that is.

IM3 faces a seasoned star trek and Fast 6 as it's comp going into the later weeks.

Just some stuff to think about.
IM3 isn't facing a "second sequel curse" of any sort. IM3 has the biggest hype of any Iron Man movie to date; IM3 is coming hot on the heels of Marvel's piece de resistance, the biggest box office blockbuster in history that didn't have James Cameron attached to it; and IM3 has the biggest hype and buzz of any movie in 2013. The trailers show the biggest, most jaw-dropping action of any Iron Man movie ever. The villains are genuine certified blue-ribbon Hollywood eeee-vil, i.e. Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley. Unlike, say, a couple of TV funnymen like, say, Topher Grace and Thomas Haden Church.

Just some stuff to think about.
