Batman is the only superhero to hit $1 B twice, and he's being paired with another Superhero, who just outgrossed the highest grossing pre-Avengers Marvel Studios movie.
I'm not saying that guarantees $1.5 Billion like the Avengers. If this was Christopher Nolan's Batman vs Superman, Starring Christian Bale, we'd be looking at a possible Avengers buster, but I think we're looking at the $1.1-1.2 B range, with more possible for a formal Justice League film.
