I didn't know that. Did you know that? BATMAN BEGINS: Budget: $150 million Domestic: $205,343,774 + Foreign: $167,366,241 = Worldwide: $372,710,015 SUPERMAN RETURNS: Production Budget: $270 million Domestic: $200,081,192 + Foreign: $191,000,000 = Worldwide:$391,081,192 Domestically, Batman Begins only made 5 million more than Superman Returns. Superman Returns also has a 76% Certified Fresh rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes. I find it shocking that Batman Begins ended up getting a sequel and Superman didn't. The critics like Superman Returns. The movie was not a box office failure. Seems like the general formula for a sequel. What the hell happened?
