    YAY now JL will make 700M. Sure that’s an awful number for what is said to be the second most expensive film ever made. And sure that means that Justice League’s DC A List Superhero team won’t make more or even match the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. This is SUCH a win for WB…………

    • Clarence Bricklyne

      LOL!

      I don’t think anyone claimed that this was either great or ….”SUCH a win” for WB.

      Certainly nowhere in the article above.

      But you do you.

      X-Men is the greatest Marvel superhero team and yet the A list superhero team didn’t make more or even match the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

      Suicide Squad made more money than practically ALL X-Men movies.

      X-Men Number of appearances in comics: 11,177 issues

      Suicide Squad Number of appearances in comics: 458 issues

      So, there is no direct relationship between popularity or importance of comic book teams and box office.

        Such is the importance of getting the characters.

        Very interesting you point that out The crowd seems to be OK with lesser known properties because there is no known reference to them to yell “that’s not my superhero!”. X-MEN and the JL characters have quite a spotlight on them, and different ones throughout time. Of course there will be a fracture; a schism in the collective knowledge and acceptance of both fans and typical moviegoers.

          “Very interesting you point that out The crowd seems to be OK with lesser known properties because there is no known reference to them to yell “that’s not my superhero!””

          I dont think it has anything to do with that. The crowd is not made by comicbook fans anyway.

          They saw the Guardians trailer and thought it would be a fun movie to watch. They saw the trailer for Suicide Squad and thought it would be a chaotic and fun movie to watch.

          The audience went to watch SS even though the characters that supposedly everyone knows (Joker) was VERY DIFFERENT from what they know. So @Axxell:disqus I don’t think getting the characters “right” is the main reason why people go to theaters.

          • Axxell

            It’s not “the main reason”, but people DO notice when the movies take such creative liberties that the character makes little sense, and that’s something no one will forgive, whether they’re comic book fans or not.

        You have to remember the X-Man franchise started in 2000. That was pre Dark Knight and MCU/Avengers. Those movies changed the superhero game in terms of box office potential. The first 3 X-Man movies were massive hits in their time. MASSIVE.

        THe Big X-Man crossover event Days of Future Past pretty much matches SS’s 745M tag.

        You can’t really compare Justice League or even the Avengers to the X-Man franchise since it’s basically from a time gone by. At least that’s how I look at it.

        • Tiago

          Time gone by? X-Men: Apocalipse is from 2016. GOTG is from 2014. And GOTG made more money.

          My point is there is no direct relationship between popularity or importance of comic book characters/teams and box office.

    It broke even, or maybe barely. Who cares, though. Perhaps WB will finally learn not to do what they did. They place their order, then wait and see what comes out. If it doesn’t pan out, find someone else to do your order correctly. How many times do car owners, who have their vehicles in a body shop or mehcanic shop, interfere with the work being done to their cars? A disaster is likely to happen when you cross that line. Especially if one is not a professional of whatever service is being paid for.
