Many fans have been commenting on the box office competition between Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel, especially considering that they are the two biggest films released at the theaters this summer. While Iron Man 3 is far ahead in the box office, Gwyneth Paltrow - who plays Pepper Potts in the series - didn't even realize that 'Man of Steel' was coming out this past weekend.
At an event last week, when she was actually asked about which film she though would do better at the box office, Gwyneth replied, "I didn’t even know there was a Superman movie coming out. Did they really make another ‘Superman?”
Gwyneth then added, "I’m not competitive. Let the best superhero win." Of course, it's not really a fair comparison considering that Iron Man 3 is now in its third outing whereas Man of Steel is a reboot of an entire franchise.
Regardless, Iron Man 3 takes the box office crown this time around, and it also received better reviews. However, Man of Steel, despite getting mixed reviews from critics, has gotten almost unanimous praise from fans. The sequel for Man of Steel has already been greenlit, and there are rumors that we could be seeing the film no later than next fall.
