While it may now seem like a distant memory to comic book fans caught up in the recent excitement surrounding the release of Man of Steel, Iron Man 3 continues to make its presence felt at the North American box office. The Marvel Studios threequel has now passed $400 million domestically, cementing its position as the fifth biggest movie of all-time with a worldwide cume of over $1.2 billion. Iron Man 3 also recently passed Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides at the international box office to become the sixth biggest movie of all-time with a record breaking $803 million.
