Huge 'Iron Man 3' Overseas Debut Validates 'Super Sequel' Strategy

Disney and Marvel's "super sequel" strategy has already begun to pay off handsomely with "Iron Man 3."

The superhero movie, which brought in $195 million from international markets over the weekend, opened No. 1 in all 27 foreign markets in which it debuted. The threequel nearly doubled the $100 million first overseas weekend of "Iron Man 2." Its total was much closer to the first weekend abroad for "The Avengers," which took in $185 million a year ago.
