You could make the same case for X3, SM3 and TASM2.

Of course it has to actually be good and resonate with a crowd. Now I want chips and salsa though

Movies that crack a billion dollars are the kind of movies that people want to see again and again in theaters. And these people aren't just the die hards.

The TF movies 'resonate' with their audience. Does that make them good?

Yes they do. I also hear similar gripes all the time about MoS, SM3, TASM2, X3, etc.

i wouldn't say those film resonated which would imply nearly every single fan approved as a whole of those films. take the first couple nolan batman films, and quite a few marvel films. those i'd say resonate

If it does...nah. Impossible. Just literally impossible. Theres no such thing as seeing into the future. But this is one of those cases where you can.

I'm starting to think that Clark doesn't like these DC films.

It's a silly topic, imo, but it obviously supports discussion considering how many pages it has, and better to bump an old thread than start a new redundant thread. No need for name calling.

I'm as skeptical of BvS ( and as hateful of MoS ) as anyone. I don't think the odds of BvS outright flopping are worth even considering. The worst its at all likely to do is "disappointing", in the sense that it makes a lot of money, but nowhere near as much as desired by WB. Which is to say, it pulls a TASM2.

Worst likely case scenario, it makes only a little more than MoS, somewhere under 800M. In that case, the next slate of movies will still go forward, but Snyder will get yanked partially or entirely from any remaining creative control, and the other movies will probably get a serious relook from the producers. Honestly, even if it *did* bomb, I suspect that's what would happen, given how far along JL and WW are. The main question, in my mind, is how much money could BvS and still inspire a similar reaction from management. Which is to say, how confident *are* they in the movie, behind closed doors?

Given that Wonder Woman has been filming for some months now and they are moving forward with that massive slate, I have a feeling they know they're set to make bank with BvS. They have every reason to be confident in my opinion.
Whether the movie is bad or not is a different story; truth be told I don't see this going under a billion even if it is as much of a stinker as MoS (which I don't think it will be).

I'm going to make a thread entitled, "What if it's a big hit?"

And then another entitled, "What if it's a modest success?"

Critically? Perhaps.

Financially?

I seriously doubt this will flop financially. Now whether this movie is good or not is another question. Even turd fests like Bay's Transformers movies were commercially successes despite being horrible movies.

DC has alot riding on this. If it's not good, i'll be a case of DC counting their chickens before they hatch because if Ben, and Gal are not liked in their roles then that'll spell trouble for the currently filming WW solo movie, the future Batfleck flicks, along with the Justice League movies…
