It’s over, guys. Justice League has finally ended its domestic box office run and it’s now officially the lowest grossing film in the DC Extended Universe.

Director Zack Snyder’s multi-hero blockbuster starring Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and Flash, the antithesis to Marvel’s Avengers, made $229 million at the U.S. box office since opening in November 2017.

The film couldn’t top Man of Steel, next rung up, which made $291 million at the U.S. box office. DC’s top domestic grossing film to date is the unbeatable Wonder Woman, which hit $412 million — and notably, it came out only months before Justice League and probably should have harnessed more of a guaranteed flow-over audience than it did.

Justice League was even $100 million behind both Suicide Squad, in third place making $325 million domestic, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in second place at $330 million.

At the international box office, the film is also in last place at a total of $657 million. Batman v Superman is the highest performer internationally at $873 million (Wonder Woman at $821 million).

DC’s next film to be released will be the James Wan-directed breakout Aquaman on Dec.21 2018, before Patty Jenkins returns with Wonder Woman 2 on Nov. 1, 2019.

Hope rests on these broad, broad shoulders.

DC has also just announced A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay for DC’s film version of The New Gods, so perhaps there’s room for improvement up ahead. Pay no attention to that formidable rumbling up ahead.

“Spider-Man: Far From Home doesn’t hit theaters for another two weeks, but early reactions from critics promise we’re in for a web-slingin’ good time.

Marvel’s second standalone Spidey film and the final chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Three, Far From Home chronicles Peter Parker’s first heroic venture following the death of his beloved mentor Iron Man in Avengers: Endgame.

Tom Holland and Zendaya return as Peter and MJ, alongside MCU newcomer Jake Gyllenhaal as comic book character Mysterio.

Of course, no Marvel movie is complete without the appearance of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Nick Fury and Maria Hill, played by Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders. As an added bonus, Jon Favreau will reprise his role as Happy Hogan.”

Here’s the Marvel movie watch list you didn’t know you needed



“A Marvel cinematic universe fan made a list of the correct order to watch the long catalog of superhero movies along with some brutally honest commentary.

It has gone viral, for all the right reasonsmostly because its so accurate.

It began when Victoria Aveyard, the New York Times-bestselling author of the book Red Queen, was asked by her roommate to create a checklist of theperfect order in which to watch the films.

From thatrequest, this beauty was born.

The advice is brutally upfront, and gives potential viewers a sense of the films before they even get started.

She calls Iron Man, the granddaddy of them all, while Iron Man 2 is trash.

And for Thor, well she advises to just ignore Natalie Portman, who played Thor’s love interest Jane Foster in the first Thor movie. She appeared later inThor 2: The Dark World, which Aveyard calls “silly.”

She goes on to call the Guardians of the Galaxy fun, and describes Doctor Strange as if House was a Wizard.

Oh, and if youre thinking of watchingIncredible Hulk at all…just don’t.

Aveyard wrote that her comments were intended to guide her roommate, who doesnt like war.

But other Marvel fans stand behind her list.
