JUSTICE LEAGUE Will Finish Its Theatrical Run With Even Less Than Expected, Might Not Surpass MAN OF STEEL

Justice League dramatically underperformed at the box office; it seems that the DC film will finish with even less than originally projected, and looks unlikely to surpass 2013's Man of Steel...

In what's sure to come as disappointing news for DC fans, it seems that Warner Bros.' Justice League will end up finishing its theatrical run with even less than originally projected.

Previous estimates for the DC superhero ensemble pegged it finishing with about $675 million, but with the film now reportedly being pulled from between 1500 to 1600 theatres over the weekend, (according to Box Office Mojo and Exhibitor Relations), it will probably end up finishing with even less, and may not surpass Man of Steel's total of $668 million. 

Currently, the film sits at $646 million worldwide since its release just over a month ago, having made just over $1 million over the Christmas weekend, bringing its domestic total to $222 million. The film, plagued by a directorial swap, reshoots, and now-infamous studio interference from Warner Bros. has massively underperformed at a bad time, especially given the critical praise and financial success from Wonder Woman last June.

The film now sits as the lowest grossing film in Warner Bros.' shared universe, and is likely to shake things up at the studio as they continue to soldier forward with their comic book adaptations.
