Much like The Avengers was the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 1 lineup of movies, last year's Justice League built off the events of director Zack Snyder's previous DC Extended Universe movies, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. For a long time, Justice League was being touted as one of the biggest DC movies yet, and it had the potential to be one of 2017's biggest blockbusters. However, not only was the DC team-up movie met with mixed critical reaction, it also commercially underperformed, and with its theatrical run having finally come to an end, it now officially ranks as the lowest grossing DCEU movie thus far.
According to Box Office Mojo, Justice League collected nearly $658 million worldwide during its time in theaters, a little over $229 million of which came from domestic screenings. For many blockbusters, a haul like this would be considered a terrific achievement, but considering that Justice League had a $300 million budget, it's nothing to write home about, although Justice League did help Time Warner surpass its financial expectations during 2017's fourth quarter. Of the other DCEU movies, Man of Steel ranks above Justice League with $668 million worldwide, while Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is at the top of the list with $873.6 million worldwide. Alas, this franchise has yet deliver a movie that hits the $1 billion mark.
