Warner Bros. Claims Batman V Superman Disappointment Has NOT Hurt Their Schedule — As They Add Two NEW DC Movies!
Despite negative critic reviews, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice still had a pretty explosive first weekend at the box office, setting the March record with $166.1 million domestic opening.
But after that the superhero team up had a HUGE drop off — 69 percent to be exact, a drop largely attributed to poor word of mouth.
While we're still waiting to see if the DC comic flick will turn a profit after its rumored $250 million budget and $150 million in advertising, it's clear the movie won't be quite the success Warner Bros hoped for.
Rampant speculation that WB might not release quite as many movies as a result of the disappointment — along with recent cape-less failures
