We asked all of you True Believers to assemble and you sure did!
Last night, "Iron Man" took home the Golden Popcorn for "Best Summer Movie So Far" at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards!
Ol' Shellhead beat out "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian," "Speed Racer" and "Sex And The City: The Movie." How's that for some stupendous super hero success?!
The awards were based on voting conducted at MTV.com.
Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey Jr., and director Jon Favreau were on hand to accept the award. Favreau thanked everyone from fans at Comic Con to good ol' mighty Marvel!
Meanwhile, the building box office numbers for "Iron Man" keep skyrocketing!
The film's domestic take is now over $276 million after a $13.5 million weekend. Additionally, the film has sold another $243 million in tickets globally to make the worldwide gross over $519 million!
We want to echo Jon Favreau's sentiments right here—thanks to all of you who shouted to the world "Make Mine Marvel!"
