"Justice League" Earned $94 Million On Its Opening Weekend. So That Makes It A Flop?

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 22:01:20 +0000

(image) Justice League’s underperformance was startling. Studio estimates pegged it earning about $115 million, around what the Superman film Man of Steel opened to in 2013; it came in well below that. Whatever appeal Warner Bros. had hoped would be generated by the union of Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, and Henry Cavill’s Superman was nonexistent.lead_960-2
