Analysts say Zack Snyder’s Justice League narrowly beat out The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in views on their respective streaming services over the weekend.
Last weekend was a massive weekend for geeks everywhere due to the long-awaited release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League on HBO Max and the premiere episode of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier hitting Disney Plus. Despite the two superhero projects going head to head, it sounds like both streaming services got plenty of attention.
On Monday, Disney came out to share that The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is now the streaming service’s most-watched premiere ever. No announcement has come from WarnerMedia regarding Zack Snyder’s Justice League yet, but we have an idea of how the four-hour DC movie fared against the Marvel Studios series. According to Samba TV, via The Hollywood Reporter’s Rick Porter, the Snyder Cut beat out The Falcon and The Winter Soldier by 100k with 1.8 million views.
Meanwhile, analytics company Samba TV says the Marvel/DC face-off was fairly close by its metrics: 1.7 million U.S. households for "FWS," 1.8 million for "JL" (5-minute viewing threshold).
