What is to Beat "Avengers"? "Iron Man 3" !

Remember when I wrote that Iron Man 3 could be a billion-dollar film? I may have been lowballing some. Early reviews of the film are in and they're spectacular. Better than Marvel's The Avengers, a $1.5 billion blockbuster.

Rotten Tomatoes says 29 of the 31 reviews thus far compiled at its site, or 94%, rate the film fresh. The Avengers rates only slightly lower at 93% while 73% liked Iron Man 2.

"[Robert] Downey [Jr.] is at his superhero genius best here, rattling off dialogue both clever and boilerplate with non-repetitive aplomb," wrote The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy. He went on to predict that IM3 "will be the (early) summer's first massive hit."

Time Out London offered a more muted assessment in time for tonight's international premiere, calling the film worth seeing, though "something of a disappointment" when compared to The Avengers. Negative reviews hardly come more flattering.

Obviously, the numbers could change over time. History nevertheless proves that early enthusiasm can become contagious.
