Justice League Ends Run As Least Successful DCEU Film

While Justice League may have already been available for purchase digitally for well over a week, it was still playing around the country in some theaters until this week. Now it looks like DC’s superhero team-up film has finally finished its theatrical run, and while the movie took in well over $500 million, it would be wrong to call this a success for the studio.

According to Box Office Mojo, the film finished its run at $657.9M worldwide, with 65.2 percent of its haul being foreign, and 34.8 percent of its haul being domestic. While these aren’t exactly small numbers, the reality is that between the production cost, the marketing cost, and theatrical cut, the movie likely lost around $50 million or so for the studio.

So how does it stack up against the other DCEU films? Well, the further bad news is that it’s grossed the least amount of money for any DC Extended Universe film to date. That’s right, it took in even less than 2013’s Man of Steel, which brought in $668 million worldwide. Here’s what the numbers look like.

Batman v Superman: $873.6M
Wonder Woman: $821.8M
Suicide Squad: $746.8M
Man of Steel: $668.0M
Justice League: $657.9M

Keep in mind, this is the movie that was supposed to gross well over $1 billion worldwide, just as The Avengers did before it. However, between the overall DCEU being more than a little bit controversial in terms of quality, and Justice League‘s tepid reviews, it looks like it just wasn’t enough to bring butts in seats.

However, while Justice League wasn’t profitable, this universe is still highly profitable for the studio, and so long as Aquaman and Shazam! shift the universe’s perception in the right direction (like Wonder Woman did), they may be able to turn things around.
