Justice League officially ended its theatrical run after four months, and in doing so it has become the lowest-grossing film set within the DC Extended Universe thus far.
Given that Justice League marked the first time the eponymous superhero group united on the big screen — a la Marvel’s The Avengers — the expectations for the Warner Bros. film were high, with many predicting it would go on to smash box office expectations. Unfortunately, after multiple misfires — with the lone exception of Wonder Woman — the mixed reviews for Justice League, as well as its behind-the-scenes problems, led to a film that failed to connect with audiences.
That became evident when it opened in November to just $93.8 million, down from not only Wonder Woman but essentially every DCEU film prior to it. Now, with the totals in, it’s official: Justice League is the lowest grossing DCEU film with just $657.9 million worldwide.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice remains the top-grossing DCEU film at $873.6 million worldwide, but is trailed shortly behind by the Patty Jenkins-helmed Wonder Woman with $821.8 million worldwide. Suicide Squad finishes in third with $746.8 million worldwide. Shockingly, the difference between Man of Steel, which finished with $668 million at the global box office, is just a mere $10.1 million.
While Warner Bros. initially sought to split Justice League into two parts under Zack Snyder, it’s currently unknown if a sequel is actually happening at this point. Prior to the film’s release, it was said that the studio had already begun to develop a sequel. However, since then, Warner Bros. has undergone a massive shakeup and it’s unknown whether those plans still hold true. One thing is for sure, though, should a sequel happen, expect it to be very different from its predecessor.
Available now on digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
