Will “Iron Man” Bring A Payday For Disney’s Top Institutional Shareholders?

Disney (NYSE:DIS): As much fun as Tony Stark is with his friends, it seems global audiences prefer to see his antic solo: In its debut weekend, Iron Man 3 brought in $195.3 million, about $10 million more than the Avengers movie in its first weekend, which became last summer’s biggest financial hit with $1.5 billion grossed around the world. Despite its early success, the new flick has a $300 million budget to beat before it breaks even — but it seems the movie is up to the task.
