I wish that were the case but I don't think so. WB is hellbent on releasing every major tentpole film in 3D, regardless of how terrible the quality of it is. The general public needs to realize what is going on here and not support these half-assed attempts. Hit the studio where it hurts most, the wallet. Only then will they learn to either do it right, or not at all. As for whether IM2 will break the OW record, of course it will. With how well IM opened, the public now being so aware of the character/franchise and the increase in ticket prices, I would go so far as to say it could be considered a bit of a disappointment if it didn't break the record. It seems like every year some BO record is going down, this year will be the OW record. Most likely IM2 breaks it, then the next Twilight will, Harry Potter, Spider-Man, Avengers, Batman 3 etc... And with 3D prices factored in to some of these movies, records will be going down left and right in the next few years.
