How about it outselling a Star Wars movie?

I guess such a notion would make less of the vine's asses experience some pain though, which the goal right here.

How about beating ever film domestically other than the big return of Star Wars and Avatar.

The targeting of DC is getting pathetic. I'm will say this. If the DCEU can somehow turn it around and make a successful film verse that haters deserve the counter attack coming their way.

Black Panther beat most films that have ever been released let alone JL including Star Wars TLJ.

Agreed. Star Wars has always been bigger than DC but users never talk about Black Panther beating The Last Jedi on here.

I actually made a thread about that exact subject. And this is comic site. of course JL would get compared to the BP before SW. don't be so sensitive.

So? You do realise Star Wars have comics as well. A lot of the battle forum is filled with Star Wars threads. General discussion still gets a good amount of Star Wars content posted. Google the last jedi comic vine and theres tons of crap.

@charliechampion Its not being sensitive it's the truth. We know the DCEU is no match right now we don't need to be reminded every 2 seconds.

That said I expect it to continue because many MCU fans enjoy twisting the knife.

Box office- Star Wars is superior by a bigger margin, even if we include Dark Knight trilogy.

Social Media- SW twitter- 3.4m f DC twitter- 2.75m f. SW Insta- 9.1m f DC- 6.2m f

Merch sales in articles says SWs has grossed 250 bill recent time while DC has only grossed around 5 bill

Star Wars even has its own damn religion and its own day (today)

@tonymartial: I'm not disputing that, I simply asked "since when?". What point in time did Star Wars grow a bigger fanbase than DC?

Of course.

Post Return of the Jedi most likely, The Phantom Menace hype was crazy.

@dark-sith123 probably knows more than me.

I wouldn't have believed it right up to when it happened.

Ten years ago I wouldn't have thought JL or BP movies would happen. "A movie that scale?" and "A character that niche?" would have been hard to believe given we just got Iron Man back then.

I wouldn't have thought much about it. I'd have thought it would depend on the movie, but I'd also have considered how the Black audience in the US might react to it and maybe taken that into consideration...depending on how they handled the film.

If the MCU started with black panther It more than likely wouldn't have grossed even 150 million. Far better movie than JL of course, but the box office success was a mixture of an already developed CU and release date.
