What went wrong with Justice League at the box office
Justice League should have been an instant hit. The team-up film brought together some of the world's most popular heroes, including Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, for what promised to be an epic battle—but it ended up disappointing in its opening weekend, pulling in just $94 million.
While this is nothing to turn your nose up at, it pales in comparison to the rest of the DCEU, representing the smallest opening for the budding universe to date. It's also only the 23rd best opening for a superhero film, and the eighth best of the year to date.
Considering Justice League's pedigree, the movie seemed like a slam dunk for a smash. So what went wrong? Here's why Justice League struggled at the box office.
