It may have received mixed reviews following the lift of today’s embargo, but it seems that much like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, Warner Bros.’ latest DCEU release Justice League is going to be critic-proof, at least for its opening weekend.
According to Deadline, the DC ensemble is looking at a domestic opening weekend of around $110 million and $120 million, with a further $215 million to $235 million internationally, for a global debut of between $325 million and $355 million.
Either of those figures would put Justice League comfortably ahead of Man of Steel ($202 million), Suicide Squad ($267 million) and Wonder Woman ($228.3 million) and would in fact by the second-biggest ever opening for a DC movie behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which debuted with a whopping $422.5 million worldwide in 2016 (currently the fifth biggest opening of all time).
