What's worse is if his Lone Ranger film takes a beating from a Marvel film as well.
It opens 3 weeks after Iron Man 3 next May, 2013.
I don't think 3 weeks will make much impact one way or another.
Obviously 3 weeks is a long time in the summer season to stay #1, however, I bet Battleship thinks it has enough distance at 2 weeks and I'm betting Avengers wins again.
If, after three weeks, Lone Ranger still can't beat Iron Man 3, then it's simply a sign that the film generated no excitement whatsoever (entirely possible). At that point in a film's release history it's heavily dependent on repeat-business, and when they'd rather see another film again than see your movie it's not likely you'd have done much better if it hadn't been there.
