Coming out of its second weekend in China, the film has earned $189.2 million in the country making it the fourth highest earning superhero film of all time in China, behind this year's Avengers: Infinity War and Venom as well as 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron; it is already the highest earning Warner Bros. film in the country to date.

With the film already outpacing Infinity War and Black Panther for domestic advance ticket sales online, the studio's tentative plans for a sequel are becoming more and more a distinct possibility.
