DC Films and Warner Bros.’ upcoming film, Justice League, is currently projected to hit $110 to $120 million in its opening weekend in North America, Deadline reports. They were quick to point out that these estimates do not come from Warner Bros.
Here’s how this projection compares to other DC movie openings:
Batman v Superman: $166.0M
Suicide Squad: $133.7M
Justice League: $110-$120M (Projected)
Man of Steel: $116.6M
Wonder Woman: $103.3M
Given that a relatively unknown entity like Suicide Squad (at least to mainstream audiences) made $133 million in its opening weekend, this may be a bit of a shock for some fans, who would understandably expect that a movie with a band of heroes would fare better than a band of mostly obscure villains. However, it’s worth noting that these numbers are early. Currently, Thor: Ragnarok is eating up a lot of enthusiasm, but once that movie hits, a lot of that anticipated could very well move on over to Justice League, thereby resulting in a higher box office in its opening weekend.
Plus, if Justice League ends up being a great movie, it’ll have no real competition for almost a month, when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits. All in all, it looks like the film really is set up for success.
