No, what IM3's BO tells us is The Avengers exposed Iron Man to far more people then the first two IM films, and in a very positive way to boot. Just like it exposed Thor & Cap to far more people than their respective debuts.

IM3 is on track to nearly double IM2's total $623m, if you think Thor can't make a comparatively measly jump from $450m to $700m... Infact I'll say $700m is probably the low end of it's potential.

It was always the one film before the avengers sequel that was going to be big.
After the "not as good as the first" reaction to IM2 another IM film would see very little growth, if any. The "Avengers bump" is a very real thing.

Thor doesn't have Robert Downey JR.It's overopstimetic to think every marvel film will do Avengers business.
But I didn't say ThorTDW or Winter Soldier would do $1.5bn...?

Your being way too overconfident for Man of steel.Batman begins and The
Amazing Spider-Man didn't get that much for their reboots.
I'm just taking Superman Returns and adding 7 years of inflation + 3D + a little Nolan interest. I don't think it's outlandish, as long as the film is actually good.

In flight there is serenity - the motion out, the space between,
The promise of each new life - and possibility.

Swallow flies south before the fall, before the winter can call...
Can call in each borrower - for what was given
