Re: The box office "bar of success" for Batman/ Superman.
Based on the way studios try to outdo each other and open films the same day or week as other films, I'm going to say that between 800 and 899 million is the goal they should be shooting for. I might change my mind once I see the trailer, and go higher.
The GA might be more forgiving than comic book fans, but if too many comic books whine about how much the film deviates from their own personal taste, I can promise you that the bad word of mouth will tank the film.
So really, a lot of the success of the film relies on word of mouth. If people would cease with their whining about every single teeny detail that they don't care for, it would probably push the film over a billion.
That moment when you put the oldies station on and hear a song that was new when you were ten. Obviously, the DJ is not well-informed on what an 'oldie' actually is.
