“Batman v Superman” Crosses $600 Mil Worldwide Tonight, Running Way Ahead of “Man of Steel”


Tonight “Batman v Superman” crosses the $600 million mark worldwide. In the US, through Sunday the total is around $250 million.

This is way ahead day to day of “Man of Steel,” Zack Snyder’s recent Superman movie. It’s just around $18 mil less than “Dark Knight Rises” after 10 days of release.

All I keep seeing though are idiotic reports “BvS” box office dropping, or ending, or some snafu that will prove the naysayers were right.

They are wrong. “BvS” is a hit. A big one. This is all after just 10 days in release. The $700 mil mark is not far away. What has the fanboys’ capes in a twist? Do they want it to fail so there will be no more movies? Give it a rest.
