BOX OFFICE: JUSTICE LEAGUE Ends Its Box Office Run As The Lowest Grossing DC Films Universe Movie To Date

Well, it looks like we'll be waiting a very, very long time for Justice League 2 because the first instalment has concluded its run at the worldwide box office as the lowest grossing DCEU movie to date.

Justice League is out now on Digital HD and Blu-ray and, as a result, its run at the worldwide box office is finally at an end. The DC Comics adaptation - which brings together all of the company's most iconic superheroes for the first time in history - has now made a total of $657.9 million worldwide, a notable contrast to what The Avengers made back in 2012 (a far more impressive haul of $1.5 billion). 

It's not the first movie set in the DC Films Universe to disappoint financially, however. Man of Steel made only $668 million back in 2013, a decent enough result but one which was widely considered a let down considering the fact it revolved around a hero as popular as Superman. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was widely expected to be a $1+ billion hit but made a total of only $873.6 million. 

On the plus side, Wonder Woman massively exceeded expectations with $821.8 million and Suicide Squad was also considered a hit with $746.8 million despite expensive reshoots. What all of this means, though, is that Justice League is the lowest-grossing DC Films movie to date, an embarrassing result for Warner Bros. which goes a long way in explaining why this division is now being shaken up.

It also points to a Justice League sequel being a very long way off, especially as the brand has been tarnished in the same way that Green Lantern was back in 2011. What do you think about this news?
