Will Iron Man Steal Batman’s Box Office Crown?

Start your (now legal) betting: After grossing more than $10 million dollars in just a couple of days’ release internationally, some are starting to estimate that Iron Man 2 will break The Dark Knight‘s opening day US box office record when it opens here a week today.

Deadline Hollywood reports that estimates for the opening weekend of the Marvel sequel range from $135 million to somewhere north of the Dark Knight record of $154.8 million (although it points out that those thinking it’ll break the record are in the minority). If it succeeds in beating Batman, one man will be very happy; the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly quotes Robert Downey Jr. hilariously talking up the movie’s box office potential:

Let me put it this way: With Sherlock Holmes, I said, “We’re blowing Avatar out of the water.” I was personally shocked at the cosmos when it did not respond to my incantations. I’m doing the same garbage this time, because most of the time I win. It’s personal… [When asked if he’s saying that IM2 will be bigger than Avatar] Did I say that? Even if I didn’t say that, I fucking mean it.

Robert Downey Jr.: Never change.
