Batman v Superman drops 68.4% at box office in second weekend


Stiff competition from God's Not Dead 2

After setting major records during its opening weekend with $420 million worldwide, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had a rough second week. The film suffered a second-week drop of 68.4%. Most movies experience a drop in w...

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice makes $424 million worldwide [UPDATED]

Mar 28 // Hubert Vigilla
[embed]220446:42876:0[/embed] The supposed worry on the part of Warner Bros execs may extend to the creative end of things. Without getting into spoilers, Batman v Superman sets up a lot of story threads for the 2017 and 2019 Justice League films. The movie teases a major threat that puts the heroes of the DC universe in great peril, and also a major problem that potentially puts the DC heroes at a disadvantage. Justice League starts shooting on April 11th with Snyder on to direct parts 1 and 2. It'll be interesting to see in what direction they take this story. If Dawn of Justice tries to do two or three movies worth of stuff in 2.5 hours, the Justice League films may similarly be trying to put four or five movies worth of material into just two films.  Batman v Superman also makes me wonder about Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman, two of the nine slated DC movies coming out through 2020. I wonder how the stories in those films will touch on the various elements that Dawn of Justice introduces. Ben Affleck may also be working on a solo Batman movie with writer Geoff Johns, and it makes me wonder what that will be like given the characterization of Batman in this film. It might be a couple years away given how crowded the DC movie schedule looks at the moment. Did you see Batman v Superman over the weekend? What did you think? Let us know in the comments.
