WOW247: "All is not as it seems, in the Warner Bros movie sphere. And Batman v Superman’s hugely negative response – both critically and publicly – could signal a new age of film; an age with less superhero movies."
But it wasn't a failure, it was a huge box office success. It had the biggest opening world wide for a superhero film
It had the largest drop off following the opening. It may have pulled in money but that was on the name alone. It was a failure in terms of an actual film.
yea but the facts still stands they made more then enough to fix it. By fix it i mean future films.
This has to be the craziest thing I've ever read. Movie stands to make almost 800 million and its considered a failure?! I've seen the movie 4 times and I think (aside from a few things I didn't like) it was a masterpiece. I was entertained from soup to nuts. and it left me wanting more including the rumored 3+ hour cut of the film. Im confused as all hell. (and I know about the business end of things) Still, expectations should be managed. You cant be second to the party and expect 4 trillion dollars revenue. Your competing against Marvel which has been dishing out movies since 2008. Hulk grossed only 263 mill and Iron Man 585 mil and these movies where considered hits. Warner Bros, needs to take a chill pill.
