Big League Flop

The release of Warner Bros.’s latest DC Comics title, “Justice League,” was a decade-plus in the making and the payoff for the years releasing standalone movies — from “Man of Steel” (Superman) to “Wonder Woman.”

Justice League  is a 2017 American superhero film based on the DC Comicssuperhero team of the same name, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. The fifth installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), the film is directed by Zack Snyder with a screenplay by Chris Terrio and Joss Whedon, from a story by Terrio and Snyder. But the mixture of poor execution and bad luck has led to a major disappointment in the movie’s opening weekend.

“Justice League” opened over the weekend with a domestic box office total of $96 million. That’s the lowest opening of any DC Comics Extended Universe release to date. The movie was projected to earn around $110 million in North America. With a 39% Rotten Tomatoes score, the movie did not leave a good taste in the mouth of critics. Many critics feel that the movie was not cohesive because of the input of too many directors. Moviegoers who did not like Batman v. Superman Dawn of Justice were given more reasons why they should stay clear of this one.

It is one of the most expensive films ever made with an estimated production budget of $300 million, which only adds insult to injury with the less than stellar movie earnings.
