There were originally predictions of a $100 million weekend, but it fell short. Still $84 million is definitely nothing to sneeze at.

Iron Man 3 has already passed the $1 billion mark worldwide which explains why Robert Downey is reportedly asking for the moon from Marvel Productions and Disney, to reprise the role again.
