Marvel’s Black Panther has doubled the opening weekend gross of the DCEU’s Justice League.
Opening to $192 million over 3 days, and $218 over 4 days, Black Panther is a clear winner in the eyes of Marvel, as it’s their second-biggest opening, falling behind The Avengers. The impressive number is also higher than any super-hero movie has made in 2017, including Justice League.
Opening at $93 million, Justice League‘s box office haul was considered disappointing by almost everyone. By the end of its run, the film made just above $650 million, falling short behind the $750 million break-even point for the film. Black Panther has currently made $361 million worldwide, which is considerably higher than Justice League’s $278 domestic gross.
One of the major reasons Black Panther is such a raging success at the box office is because of its critical success. The film managed to snag the coveted A+ CinemaScore and a Certifed Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Meanwhile, Justice League was considered by many to be step-down from Wonder Woman – a film that was both a critical and commercial marvel. Justice League managed to earn a B+ CinemaScore but wasn’t appreciated by critics on Rotten Tomatoes who gave the film a 40%.
