That's a flawed argument. You can also argue that no MCU film broke a billion until
The Avengers were realized. I still enjoyed it but to me Iron Man 3 was the weakest MCU film yet. Why is it the highest grossing Iron Man? Momentum. Everyone saw the Avengers and now everyone wants to see what happens next.
I just hope Thor can ride that momentum as well despite the ill received Mandarin twist.
