BOX OFFICE: BATMAN v SUPERMAN Falls Short Of $900 Million, But Is Still 7th Biggest Superhero Movie Ever

Batman v Superman started off strong at the box office but quickly plummeted, and while it may be the seventh highest grossing superhero movie of all-time, it's likely to end its run shy of $900M...

The latest numbers are in for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the film now has a worldwide haul of $862.9 million. According to The Hollywood Reporter, that means it's likely to conclude its run somewhere around the $875 million mark, a disappointing result for a release many initially predicted would top the $1.4 billion haul made by The Avengers in 2012. It became clear by that second or third week that $1 billion was out of the question of course, but failing to reach $900 million isn't great, especially when Batman v Superman cost such a huge amount to make. 

However, it's not exactly the worst possible result for Warner Bros., something which box office analyst Jeff Bock explains to the trade: "[Outside] of Christopher Nolan‘s two Dark Knight movies, and Tim Burton‘s Batman films when you adjust for inflation, this is the highest-grossing property in DC’s bullpen thus far. It tops Man of Steel by more than $200 million. So yes, BvS successfully relaunched DC’s cinematic universe, but they are nowhere near Disney/Marvel in terms of critical reception and box office prowess. One can only hope that bigger and better is still on the way." It's hard to argue with that analysis, and on the surface, Batman v Superman has definitely been a hit. How Warner Bros. feels about it after spending so much money may be an entirely different story though!
