“Phase Two” of Disney's “Marvel Cinematic Universe” begins Friday, with the U.S. opening of “Iron Man 3.” Internationally, however, “Phase Two” has already begun, and apparently the Marvel juggernaut is in no immediate danger of leaving the rails.

This past weekend, “Iron Man 3,” yet to open in Germany, China, and Russia, pulled in $195.3 million abroad, which is $10.2 million more than last year's “The Avengers” made in its first weekend of international release. “The Avengers” went on to rake in more than $1.5 billion worldwide.
