Batman and Superman are the most popular comic book characters of all time, so it would only make sense that it would make more money than The Avengers which had (Reletively) unknown characters (in terms of mainstream success) Well, I think The Avengers will still make more. Why you ask? Because, The Avengers had 5 movies building up to it, all connecting each other. The Dark Knight Trilogy was HUGE, but it doesn't connect to Man of Steel (Which some love, and others hate) The Green Lantern was a gigantic flop. Plus, Ben Affleck is Batman, not Christian Bale. Bringing in a new Batman when so many people are so accustomed to Bale is a big risk, and I haven't even mentioned the fact people hate Affleck as Batman already. What do you think?

No, probably won't even reach a billion unless Terrio wrote the script to be more...cheerful.

I get not wanting to be all "joke every 5 seconds" like Marvel, but a joke doesn't hurt the tone. Goyer and Snyder couldn't produce humor together, hope Terrio has a better moment.

They won't make as much money. The Avengers had one hell of a build up through other Marvel movies and was able to draw in fans of single characters from their solo films increasing the general viewing. It will do well but not that well.

Will it be a better movie however remains to be seen.

Hmm...don't how how anyone KNOWS, but IMHO, probably not. However, if there's a movie that could, this is it.It will have to be really good and have great word-of-mouth to pull it off.

It will make a billion, but don't think it'd reach The Avengers. Avengers was a very unique situation in which the premise was fairly new and exciting/unseen. And then you'll tell me "BUT BATMAN AND SUPERMAN ARE MEETING ON-SCREEN"-- exactly. Still stand by my point.

This is what people don't get - not just with BvS, but with other CBM's. Since Avengers came out, I haven't been able to take anyone's B.O. predictions seriously. Like with MoS... Lol those MoS box office prediction days were hilarious. Same with X-Men - those films haven't even touched 500 mil after 14 years, what makes people think it'd reach a billion now?

@tellurian: I agree, but DoFP looks like it's on course to hit 500 Million.

In the first weekend? Yes, I believe it will. If not pretty close.

Overall? Depends on how good of a movie it actually is.

Goyer has already p****ed off the loyal fans, it won't take long before he p****s off the mainstream audience too.

It will make nearly as much, maybe, unless it is a spectacular failure.

MOS made 668M, both TDK and TDKR both made 1B, Avengers made 1.5B, so BvS is going to make 1B. If they move there date off of the time slot May 6th.

Probably not more, but it has the potential. Despite all the hate for it, there has been a lot of hype/attention generated for it already.

@theamazingbatman: There's little doubt this movie won't hit 1B or more, BvS has Superman, Batman, and WW, sequels usually make waaaaaay more than the first film. DC gave NASCAR JL designed cars, the Superman car looks pretty awesome, millions of people watch NASCAR.

The only problems I see is Cap 3 vs BvS for May 6th, imo BvS should move to May 13th.

It will have the biggest opening day and weekend hands down, but if it gets good reviews and good word of mouth then it can possibly beat the Avengers. Maybe. I don't think it will, if it does I'm not surprised.

@theamazingbatman: Yeah, Cap3 comes out May 6th 2016. I can't say I'm too excited for Avengers 2, I'm sure it will be better than the first, I'm just more excited to see WB/DC movies atm.

Hmm , well I'm excited to see some new heroes and villains in the avengers .

The only movies that i'm truly waiting for now are the hobbit 3 and assassin's creed , hope that they would be great movies.

I don't think that there would be a new tomb raider movie in the next two years . And game movies usually don't gross much .

@theamazingbatman: Yeah 10 years ago, even still some video games like TR and Resident Evil made a profit with low budgets. If they brought games back to the big screen the studios will make money. A new Tomb Raider is in development, from what I heard.

I agree, but he's not penning the script though. Chris Terrio is.

I know, I just had to get my daily Goyer hate. I still probably wont see it, just because I didn't find the last Superman interesting.

My best guess? It will beat avengers, but avengers 2 will beat it. Also I would argue that spiderman is as/ more popular then superman.

It really depends on how good the movie is. Even Avengers 2 may not beat Avengers, so you never know until it happens. We'll just have to wait and see.

AOU won't even beat TA 1 at the BO now. My guess for BVS? Definitely over a billion. Way to early to tell.

BTW, for the people who think this won't come close to a billion are delusional. When BVS comes out in March there is nearly zero competition for 8 weeks or so. Furious 7 did extremely well, because of this. MOS made 668 M WW and that was WITH insane competition. Despicable Me 2, WW Z, and Monsters University all came out around the time MOS came out. This won't be the case with BVS, which will have a novelty factor like Avengers and people are going to be curious about the fight.
