It already demolished Spider-Man 3‘s opening weekend record, but on Wednesday, The Dark Knight passed up Spider-Man 3‘s total domestic box office gross of $336.5 million to become the third highest grossing superhero movie ever. Only the first two Spidey films have grossed higher. Knight will pass up those two over the next week. Wednesday’s daily gross of $8.8 million gives it a new total of $342.7 million which already puts it at number 13 among the top grossing films of all time after just 13 days of release.
