S’ok guys, chin up.
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.
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.
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.
This is outstanding.

Superheroes and freaky cats: how Captain Marvel rewrote the rules
From the story behind Nick Furys eyepatch to the rehabilitation of the Skrull, the latest Marvel film has altered comic-book canon in fruitful ways
“If theres one thing we should have been primed for, prior to viewing Captain Marvel, it would be to expect the unexpected. Marvel is a studio that, time and again, has chosen to twist comic-book canon to suit new needs, rather than deliver overly faithful adaptations of the original work.
The addition of the Skrull, a race of alien shape-shifters, to the Marvel universe, prompted predictions that we may ultimately see storylines riffing on the 2008 Secret Invasion storyline, in which various members of the Avengers are replaced by extraterrestrial interlopers. In the comics, the Skrull are usually evil and often bent on invading Earth and taking it for themselves. So the fact that Captain Marvels trailers showed Skrull disguising themselves as human while fighting Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) naturally led observers to suspect they were up to their old tricks.
To twist that narrative on its head and make the Skrull the victims of a race of fascistic alien warriors, the Kree, was the kind of masterstroke that only Marvel could pull off. Any other studio would have faced accusations of subverting canon, but the Disney-owned studio has done such a great job of creating its cinematic universe that it has credit in spades from fans.
We trust that if Marvel has chosen to alter the way the MCU works for the big screen, there must be a good reason. And here, there is: it is the involvement of the Skrull, and the revelation that they are not the bad guys after all, that allows Danvers to escape her straitened existence as a sort of Kree pet and achieve her destiny as Captain Marvel…………………………………………………………….”
Doom Patrol Extended Trailer | DC Universe
DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (BRENDAN FRASER), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (MATT BOMER), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (APRIL BOWLBY) and Crazy Jane (DIANE GUERRERO), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (TIMOTHY DALTON). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (JOIVAN WADE), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
Based on DC characters originally written and drawn by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani #DCUDOOMPATROL premieres February 15.
