Batman v Superman had anywhere from a $250-$300 million budget and it probably should have made more than $870 million. It underperformed but it wasn't the " LOL omg it bombed horribly Man of Murder DCEU suxs LOL" it was still a box office success, just not as big as it should have been.

    Spiderman Homecoming is doing OK. You can't really compare it to BvS Because the scrutiny and the stakes aren't as large. The only thing they have in common is that at the end of the day S-M: H may just slightly underperform, as BvS did. Other than that it's apples and oranges.

    Of course the other difference you likely won't see trolls coming out of the woodwork using Spidey's box office to automatically proclaim any future Marvel film in production " failures" before one minute of film is shot like many did with WW after BvS.
    Homecoming is doing pretty badly atm. It's trailing the other comic book movies released this year internationally, and trailing TASM 1 by a lot domestically and internationally. Homecoming hasn't been released in China yet, but both Deadpool and Suicide Squad never opened in China and did gangbusters regardless.

    Spider-Man fatigue is real.


    What BvS needed was a higher gross coming from China. That would've pushed it over the edge. Last year, CACW did $190 million, X-Men Apoc did $120 million, and Warcraft did $214 million. This year Fate of the Furious did $392 million, Transformers 4 did $320 million in 2014 and Jurassic World did $228 million in 2015. BvS's Chinese takeaway was only $90 million. Looking at WW's Chinese gross, it will also do $90 million.
    Foreign box office has a lot of room for improvement for the DC films.

    Given Sony's record over the past decade or so I assume that is common feeling over at Sony probably subconscious like breathing for them by now.

    TBH Sony shouldn't have rebooted in 2012. Should have waited till 2017 (maybe asked the MCU) to help them) and capitalize on the decade that there has been no Spiderman movie. But the fatigue is real.

    Also as for people talking about superhero movie fatigue? They'll make bank as long as they use different heroes.
