Couldn't hold the top spot for more than a week

Dear god, an analyst said that.

I'm curious exactly how much this film would have needed to do that. Perhaps it would have needed to perform as well as Ironman 3? The giant mega threequel and Joss Whedon victory lap.

IM3's second weekend 72mill
MU's opening weekend 82mill
(ingore WWZ, everyone else seems too).

Just seems like agenda imo.
Some context might help.

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
