The sixth and final superhero movie of 2017 hit cinemas today, as Warner Bros.
assembles its greatest heroes for the DC team-up movie Justice League
It’s the second superhero movie we’ve had in recent weeks after Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok
, and according to THR, executives at Warner Bros.
are apparently sweating over Justice League
’s opening weekend, being concerned that it may fail to outperform its Marvel rival.
“If a B character from Marvel shut downs and outperforms the A team from DC, that’s an embarrassment,” the trade quotes an insider at the studio. “It’s going to be a stressful weekend for some [Warners] execs.”
