However, with all of the above, and to everyone’s surprise, Batman v Superman swept the box office and has already broken several records.In these early days, Batman v Superman grossed $ 500 million worldwide, becoming the most successful debut of a movie based on comics of all history, and the fourth highest grossing debut overall, behind only of Star Wars: the Force Awakens, Jurassic World, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
For Warner Bros., meanwhile, it is the most successful debut of its history in the domestic box office (in US only).
If we take into account the negative reviews and the average mentioned in Rotten Tomatoes, more interesting facts emerge: no previous film has surpassed $ 150 million at the box office in its debut had a less than 63% on Rotten Tomatoes average, and is also the fifth film in history to exceed $ 100 million and have less than 30% of critical average.
All these data are already many specialists and analysts debate about the role of criticism and trying to explain why a film with such a globally negative reception anyway has prompted the public to quickly go to see a movie in the week of its premiere.
Maybe Zack Snyder is the real winner in all this: the only one who knew it was enough to put Batman and Superman in the same film and make them fight between them after befriending an absurd resolution and fight a great villain with Wonder Woman so that people want to see it, no matter if it is well done or not. He himself admitted : “Batman fight with Superman If you can not see the fun of it, then the wrong you.”
